Not what I wanted to hear

9th February 2011 - The popular anti-wrinkle jab, Botox, is unlikely to offer much benefit to the one in seven people in the UK affected by migraine, according to an article in a drug and treatment review journal.

Migraine pain and symptoms affect 18% of women and 8% of men and is the most common form of disabling headache that sends patients to see their GP.

Bit of a mixed message there..think it is still really too soon to as they state if you have exhausted all other treatment options and know some suffers have had it help them..then it's a bit of a no brainer.

Even having read the whole thing I would still take a punt on it.
