Pain from the injection site - procedure done 3 weeks ago?

I had botox for migraines done 3 wks ago. The injection site on the back of my head/neck area is painful. It actually causes me to have a headache as it is a constant throbbing pain.

It would be a good idea to follow up with your treating provider to make sure there is no concern. Otherwise, it could be from trauma, especially if you had a lot of swelling/bruising.
