I get botox every 90 days for chronic migraines and blepharospasm (mostly in my right eye). I am due for another round in 2 wks. Due to insurance guidelines, I can't get the botox done any sooner.

The problem is that the botox is wearing off and the spasming around my eye is causing hell right now! The spasms are so strong that they're causing a migraine (as well as jaw and facial spasms/pain/tightness).

I have been trying ice, heat, and massage, but nothing really helps.

Any suggestions on what to do until I get get the next round of botox?
There's always HOPE.

I'll be ok.
