I now drive an hour and a half to my neurologists office every 3 months for 30 Botox injections, across my forehead, scalp, neck, and shoulders. Prior to having the injections I had 5+ migraines a week, now I have about 5 migraines a month. The injections have worked wonders for me!!! The only negative I've experienced (which is no fau ...

Comment:

I was too close to a "serious or life thre ... Show Full Comment
