With seasonal transitions, chronic headaches and migraine attacks are experienced much more often. You can leave your headache behind with botox treatment, which is another solution applied other than medications to treat migraines. This week we will tell you about the solution of migraine with ‘botox’ in Turkey


Migraine attacks, exacerbated by seasonal uncertainties, have become a nightmare for many. Migraine, a severe chronic headache that ranks as the third most common disease worldwide, is more common in women than in men. Stress, too much or too little sleep, alcohol, thirst, and caffeine are considered the most common factors that trigger migraines, and can often also be caused by seasonal factors. A migraine patient who has spent at least 15 days of the last 3 months with a headache and has typical migraine pain on at least 8 of these painful days is called a chronic migraine. Migraine causes loss of work force on an individual and social scale. Migraine attacks, which negatively affect the economic and quality of life of a person, also lead to the appearance of psychological problems. Patients are forced to cope with the risks of constant and excessive use of painkillers, as well as the negative psychological state created by living with pain.


Another solution used other than medications to treat migraines is botox therapy in Turkey. This is due to the fact that botox blocks the distribution of certain neurotransmitters in the nerve endings, thereby preventing inflammatory pain. Botox is applied to the forehead, temples, nape and neck area and into the head in the treatment of migraine. The effect of applications in most cases lasts approximately 4 to 6 months. Then it is necessary to repeat the procedure again. The advantages of applying botox for migraine are primarily in the absence of side effects and the fact that it can be applied in a short time. Although it has been proven to be effective and beneficial, the patient can resume social life immediately after this treatment. You can overcome your migraine with botox effect up to 6 months without cuts, wounds, bruises.


In people with untreated migraine, there is a loss of labor on an individual and social scale, a decrease in economic and quality of life, and psychologically negative effects. Patients have to cope with the risks of constant and excessive use of painkillers, as well as the negative psychological state created by living with pain.

One of the biggest causes of migraine is hormonal changes. For this reason, it is more common in women during their menstrual periods. Migraine pain is usually genetic, and if someone in the family has a migraine problem, you are about 40 percent likely to have a migraine as well. In addition to migraine headaches, severe headaches; symptoms such as nausea, throbbing pain in the head, discomfort from light and sound, increased pain when moving, flash of light in the eye, half vision and numbness of some areas of the body can be seen. In this case, the diagnosis should be made in a clinical setting after the patient has been evaluated by a neurologist. The trigger points of migraine-type headaches are between the two eyebrows, temples, nape, back of our eyes and nasal.
