Migraine Sufferers Turning to Botox for Relief

By

Nearly 10 percent of the population suffers from migraine headaches and those who've lived it,  know just how debilitating they can be. Tuesday we introduced you to a Brownsdale woman who's been battling them for years. Those who suffer from migraines know that treating them is a headache in itself… Some say, the most complicated part of migraines is treating them, since doctors say it is likely a complex genetic disorder. This means all patients respond to medications differently. "We don't know which particular patient to give which type of medicine to and so as a result, it's a series of inefficient trial and error approaches that are expensive, and in my opinion,  it results in a lot of needless suffering," said Dr. Michael Cutrer, neurologist at Mayo Clinic.
