I just wanted to say your description of having chronic migraines seemed to vividly describe the extent and depth of the suffering one suffers with this illness.

I have usedBotox for a number of years now with very good success, most of the time. Occasionally, my body seems to not respond to one of the rounds of treatment. Initially, I did not get results from the shots but I was told by some people who had success that it took a little while for it to work, so I continued to get the treatments and by the third round of Botox, my migraines dropped in half. They have now dropped by 2/3 generally. Good luck with your decision! I don’t like the shots, but I do like the results.
Hi! My pulmonologist is okay with me doing both procedures at the same time to give me some time during my day as I work pretty much full time and he feels my lungs are receiving the needed treatment. Everyone is different and has different ideas, so I don’t know the reasons for your doctor’s choice, but I certainly believe in gathering information to go back to discuss with him/her. Good luck and be well.

I was approved for this program and then I broke my foot. They said I would need to be able to do about 20 minutes of exercise daily. My foot is no longer broken, but now I have chronic pain which significantly limits the time I am on my feet at a time. I am still working and getting through my day without pain meds, but I don’t know if I could do the exercise portion of the program. I am wondering what your input on this would be, if possible? Thx for considering. Stay well.
Hi thumperguy, thanks for the compliment on my compliance but I too take random, very short breaks when I can’t muster motivation😔. I could not bring up any mucus prior to using the vest but had a pretty consistent dry cough. The combination of nebulizing and the vest tend to bring up the mucus for me and then sometimes for a little while afterwards. Periodically, during the day I still have my dry cough and rarely some spitting. That’s how it goes for me anyway. Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
