Botox for Head Pressure?

I just received Botox treatment for the pressure he feels around the circumference of my head ("helmet"). I don't have migraines...just constant pain. Will Botox really work for this?

Botox for head pressure (headache), pain around scalp, time will tell if it works.

This is an unusual type of pain to treat with Botox.  If everything has been tried and investigated, giving it a shot with Botox is not a bad idea.  There is little downside to trying it out.  Time will tell if this type of treatment will work for you.  Steve Weiner, MD, Destin, Florida.
