BOTOX For Migraines
Like many other migraine treatments, its discovery was purely accidental. BOTOX™ was originally discovered when patients, who had used it for other purposes, reported improvement in the migraine headaches. Why Botox helps migraine is not fully understood, but the FDA approved it for that specific use in 2010.
For a muscle to contract, the nerve releases a chemical called acetylcholine. It is a neurotransmitter, which sends signals from one neuron to another. Acetylcholine attaches to cells in the muscle, which then causes it to contract. When Botox is injected, this attachment is blocked and contraction of muscle is prohibited.
In migraine, it is thought that Botox relaxes the muscles that are sensitive to pain, and it may even block pain signals from the brain.
At the end of the day, BOTOX™ is a welcomed addition into the world of migraine.
