I had done a 'migraine compass', completed a very thorough questionnaire and then had a half hour consultation with the most charming and confidence inspiring doctor I think I have ever met.
It appears that I may be suitable for an operation to remove a small section of the corrugator muscle which brings relief to the trigeminal nerve. In order to test the theory (and save myself from having unnecessary surgery) I was today injected with Botox into the corrugator muscle. I've now got to wait for a month to see if I have 75% or more improvement in my symptoms. If I do then I then have to make the decision if I want to go ahead with the surgery. If it works I think I will as it will improve my life considerably.
So please keep your fingers crossed for me!
And did you know that Botox doesn't actually start to work for 5 days once it has been injected? I learned a whole load of interesting information this weekend!
Oh yes, and after the consultation Hugh and I had a lovely Italian meal.
