It depends on where the Botox was injected for the migraines. If there were injections in the neck your symptoms could represent a problem. I would see your injector for an evaluation.

Botox stops muscle contractions

Botox stops muscles from contracting, which can lead them to feel like they are tighter because they don't have the ability to move as fluidly. It will lessen over time, yes, but if you have concerns, I would recommend you return to your injector for an evaluation.
