  1. I get over a dozen a month. I wish a had a dozen a year. Chronic migraines are horrible. I use botox every three months and it had barely made a difference. I hope doctors find something that that actually work one day for severe sufferers like me. When you suffer from chronic migraines every day, not just regular migraines, aura migraines your quality of life is so poor.

  2. Go to a neurologist who specializes in migraines. I'm getting 200 units of botox for $155, covered by insurance. That's $2,000-$4,000 worth of botox from a cosmetic place.
