    Day 14, the headache is felt worse upon awaking. Today like a 6. Not working for me. Plus, my left hand is hurting for no reason. Like a tendinitis or something and no reason for that to occur.

    I just took my 3rd month dose 48 hours ago. Emgality has been a game-changer for my 30 year history of migraines.

    I took Aimovig for 4 months and stopped because since the first shot my hair was falling out. Same problem with Emgality, I injected myself for the first time 3 weeks ago and hair loss began almost immediately. Going back to botox injections, no side effects with that.
