"I developed chronic migraines over twelve years ago. During this time I've been through more treatments than I can recall claiming to cure, prevent, or relieve my migraines. The intensity of my migraines range from just barely above an annoying headache to excruciating pain where I've passed out from avoiding the pain and pressure associated with the mere act of breathing when I have a migraine. I've taken numerous medications and tried just about every home and natural remedy known to man. Until now I've settled into a routine of accepting the fact that my migraines are going to happen learning a few specific triggers to them and knowing how to counteract the triggers specifically. So far the only approach that has helped is actively avoiding anything I know will cause a migraine and then passively treating it. The effectiveness of this approach is usually only effective enough to draw my suffering down to once or twice a month.
Complicating my struggle with migraines are the problems with TMJ. This problem with TMJ has left me to deal with the problem of my jaw locking open, clicking and popping in the joint and a near constant soreness and pain in my jaw joint. Often my migraines are triggered and or worsened by the pain I have experienced with my jaw. Constantly wearing a night guard is the only help so far I have had with my TMJ issues.
Initially I viewed a Botox treatment as another snake oil type remedy that had good intentions of helping with either of my problems, but would in reality be mostly ineffective. My view of Botox was also skewed by the fact that it is mostly used cosmetically and a very expensive treatment associated with a few horrible side effects.
The Botox treatment I received from Dr. George exceeded all my expectations and any doubts I had about Botox being an effective treatment for migraines and TMJ problems. During the treatment I was told it may take up to two weeks for the treatment to take effect. I was surprised when almost immediately, before I even left the office, the tension in my head had subsided and I felt like a whole new person. That night I was so relieved from my nagging jaw ache that I forgot entirely to wear my night guard and woke up the next morning with no pain, something I probably haven't done in years. I went nearly four weeks without even thinking about my head hurting, something else that hasn't happened in years. I was so relieved that I quickly forgot to avoid migraine triggers and on one occasion realized that I had done something that would have previously triggered a migraine, but it passed with just a minor headache.
Receiving the Botox treatment has been a life changing experience for me. Nothing else has come close to effectively preventing my migraines and dealing with TMJ disorders. What a relief it has been for Dr. George to offer this service and improve my quality of life."
