    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I have an appointment on July 5th. My last botox treatment wore off at the end of April. I'm really suffering, but I can't afford a treatment right now. I am wondering if it is better to not have a treatment before my appointment, or if it makes any difference? I suffer from daily chronic migraine...any thoughts?
    thanks!

    Call the neuro's office and ask their advice-- does he want to see you as you are normally, or after Botox.
