alexzwk's Journal, 20 September 2013

Not feeling grand today. I had my Botox injections yesterday (for migraines) and feel a bit yucky and sore. Food is going OK I think. I had difficulties yesterday because I did not eat all day and then was starving at night. I think I still made it ok on carbs but not enough calories. As long as I have the carbs correct - I am not overly worried but I do try to watch it all. I have most of my difficulties getting the 12 to 15 net carbs of veggies. I wish there was something prepackaged that I could use with the correct carbs. I could eat one package or multiple packages a day and know I was correct with my carbs. I am guessing thre is something out there but I have just not found it yet :(

Would canned veggie juice work for you? I have heard of the botox treatments for migraines but not known anyone that has done them? Do they help you? I have a friend who suffers really bad. If they help you, I will tell her.

This was my third treatment. They put about 50 shots into your face, head and neck. It is not fun. But my migraines are less frequent, less severe and are shorter when I do have them. The shots are the best thing i have ever done and the only thing I have ever done that helped my migraines. They are miracle workers for me. I have a friend whos mom had the first round of shots and refused to go back. She did not tolerate the shots well and had some swelling issues. She did not have much relief from the Migraines and thought it was not worth going back. I felt similarly after the first round but after the second round... I have seen a great improvement. I recommend anyone with Migraines to try it but definately, give it some time. I think my insurance company approved 4 rounds to begin with... You should definately go for all 4 before you decide if it helps or is worth it.

I have trouble getting my 12-15 net carbs too. Atkins could make some $$ if they followed your suggestion. Maybe you could submit the proposal to them for consideration. I bet there are a lot of Atkins folks that have the same problem. There is a "contact us" on their website I think.
