We know that most chronic migraine sufferers respond to Botox® treatments, but not all. Several markers have been looked at and none of them were able to predict who responed. That may be changing. A recent study found that the best responders to Botox® had a pain that felt to them as it was crushing or pushing inward. Those patients whose headaches feel like a pressure pushing out or exploding, responded the least. This may further help patients decide if Botox® treatment is the right choice for them.
