What is a Chronic Migraine Headache

Chronic Migraine headaches are the most severe regular kind of headache. Chronic migraines are much more common than typical migraines. When you have a chronic migraine you have 15 or more headache days per month.

Chronic migraine headaches are particularly difficult because they don’t respond to many of the most common treatments for regular migraine. They may respond to some medications, but finding the right treatment can take time and effort.
If you suffer from chronic migraine, you may not be able to work or participate in social activities. You may even have trouble with your memory and concentration. Migraines can also lead to depression and anxiety. In addition to all this, chronic migraines are often accompanied by tension headaches or cluster headaches or medication-overuse headaches that add to the pain and make treatment even more difficult.

There are many different triggers for migraine headaches. The most common migraine trigger is the consumption of certain foods, including cheese, chocolate, tomatoes, caffeine, and alcohol. Other common migraine triggers include lack of sleep, physical exertion, hormonal changes in the body (around menstruation or menopause), and changes in weather or barometric pressure.

The good news is that there are effective treatments for chronic migraine in particular Botox injections.

I had a liquid nose job done with Dr Majid and cannot stress enough how brilliant he is! He fully explained the procedure over a free consultation, informed me of all risks and aftercare guidance, and took time to fully understand the result that I was after before booking me in for the procedure. The result was even better than I imagined it would be, he has straightened my side profile, thus addressing a big insecurity of mine, as well as evening out my nose from the front and raising the tip of my nose slightly. I really disliked my side profile before having this done, and now I love it! I would recommend Majid to anyone, and will definitely be back again!

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no objectively right answer to the question. The answer depends on how severe your migraines are, and so on.

Botox is considered to be one of the most effective treatments for chronic migraines. It is estimated that up to 85% of migraine sufferers who receive Botox injections find significant relief.

The treatment requires three or four injections spaced out over a six-week period. However, you will need to return every 12 months for top-up injections.

Side effects can sometimes be severe, depending on the person’s health and what areas of the body were injected. Side effects include drooping eyelids, inability to raise eyebrows, dry mouth, lightheadedness, etc.
