Migraines after day 5 of injection of Botox

I'm almost 27 years old and have been getting migraines since about the 5th grade.  I haven't gotten a migraine in about 3 years.  I got 20units of Botox injected into my forehead last monday.  I worked out with my personal trainer Tuesday and Thursday, and day 5 of having the botox, after I worked out I got a migraine.  Saturday I didn't work out because my headache was still somewhat there.  I went to the gym on Sunday and got a migraine about 20 minutes after working out.  My Dr. said there's no way the Botox is causing my migraines.  I don't see what else it could be.  Has this happened to anyone?  I'm feeling upset because I want to go to the gym, but I'm scared of getting another migraine.

Oh wow, I can definitely understand why you would be shying away from the gym if you are getting migraines right after you go. :( I've only had a handful of migraines, but I know they are AWFUL, so I am so sorry to hear you are having to deal with them. Good for you for getting online and doing your own research to try to find the cause.

Since I just loaded you up on botox/headache info I do feel like I should mention that lots of people do get Botox and don't get headaches, and some even get Botox to treat migraines, so it seems people have varying experiences with it.
