    Hoping for some relief???

    I happened to stumble on this tonight... trying to find other options for my sounds like everyone here is going thru the same thing, with not a lot of relief anymore. I have suffered from migraines since I was a teenager, but they got worse after having neurosurgery when I was 22.
    Have tried depakote.. no relief and a few others.. am on topamax which has actually helped alot instead of having them constantly, its about 2 weeks a month now.. I already take a beta blocker, and now am a diabetic on top of it all, so that has just made them even worse..LOL
    My Dr.. is trying to get me to try the Botox shots, but I am scared to death of the side effects of that.. Has anyone out there tried them yet. or been on anything else that has worked?
