a no go on botox

It turns out that I'm one of the lucky 5% who has a negative reaction to Botox when treated for chronic migraines.

In a nutshell: I've had a constant migraine headache for the last 9 days, I feel like someone is tightening a belt around my skull, I can't turn my neck, and I feel as wonky as wonky gets.

Being that I have lupus, I tend to let things like this go for a while before I call the doctor. Pain is something I am used to and I am still always optimistic that it will go away. Then I feel a little embarrassed when I finally call and tell them that it has been 9 days.

So it looks like I'm going to go back to my old treatment which had some success.

It also looks like I'll be embracing my forehead wrinkles once again.

I was just thinking about emailing you to see how the botox looks when I read this!
Oh no. I'm sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you as it relates to the migraines. I suffered for years in high school and then one day, they literally just went away.
I feel for you.
