Botox and Surgery: Long term relief of migraines can be achieved with botox. If you have a good response, you may be a candidate for surgery. Surgery has been shown to dramatically decrease the frequency and intensity of migraines. www.themigrainereliefcenter.com.

Best to prevent: You are not taking medicine or treatment to prevent headaches. Although Botox may be an approach, could also try greater occipital nerve block, and one of the newer dental splints. The plastic surgery technique is quite new, and may also help, but get two opinions here, as not clear re duration of benefit, and may not be covered by insurance. Prescription meds and many otc items work well.
