I’ve heard this same question asked consistently over the past seven years. The answer differs, depending on who you ask.
Although I considered it, I never got around to trying it. I kept putting in off and trying other things instead, because I am cautious. At the time I was considering it, insurance wasn’t covering the cost of injections to treat headaches, even though there was some evidence to prove that it is effective.
- I’ve heard NDPH patients rave about how it works for them.
- I’ve heard others say the injections didn’t even touch the pain.
- I’ve heard accounts of temporary paralysis of the eye muscles.
- I’ve heard people say that the treatment worked for a while, then stopped working.
Is it worth trying? I would say yes, if there is a chance it could stop your pain. Be sure to evaluate all the risks before you make your decision.
Have you already tried botox injections to treat your NDPH?
