round of injections. After 2 hours of the injections 2 1/2 weeks ago, it made the headache even worse. I have been suffering since and today I was admitted into the hospital once again for the DHE treatment. On the 7th of November I will be traveling to Seattle for a new consultation about the migraines, so I am hoping this will be the last treatment of the DHE. Sorry I haven't been a support for many of you, but it has really been a ruff past weeks and had know choice but to be admitted once again. Take care everyone, Liz.
Hi all, I just thought I would update you all on the Botox injections which was the second?

Hi All, just wanted to add this and to tell you that I am going home from the hospital. The headache is still their but it is not a 10/10 any more, so some improvement and time will tell for how long it will get better or just stay at a
6-7/10. Hope you all had a nice weekend, take care Liz.
Oh Liz, I'm so sorry the botox didn't work out for you. I truly hope the DHE works for you. I know how you hate the whole process, but if that's the only way to feel even remotely better, than of course, that's what you need to do. I'll be praying that they work and that you'll be able to find a successful treatment option in Seattle. Sending you prayers and positive energy!
Awwww Liz, I'm so sorry! You certainly have gotten the brunt of EVERYTHING haven't you? I really hope that the DHE doesn't give you any side effects this time,and that it works well for you. I couldn't find out anything useful about the hospital, except that they have a very big website. No reviews or anything, and my friend never heard about it, so I think that it is fairly new. I hope it works out for you! If not, there is the Diamond Headache Center in Michigan, (I believe), which is world renowned.
I am So very sorry the Botox did not work.
My Old Neurologist was always pushing me to do Botox... I had NO interest in it at All... as I said my OLD Neurologist.
They found out a couple of months ago all these crazy migraines I heave been having is because on top of having Chronic Migraines.. The new diagnoses I have is I also have Hemicranial Headaches.I haven't quite figured out why they call these things
"Headaches" as they literally feel like your brain is exploding & my skull is holding it in..with so Much pressure & they are Constant.. So I feel your pain... You would think that All these Drs. Would have more methods to help us out.
You take care & I hope your visit to Seattle goes well & helps you to manage your pain. You are in my thoughts & prayers.
Your friend, Kathy
P.s .. Thanks for keeping us up to date & definitely let me know how your visit goes in Seattle.
