Experiencing headaches even worst than before I received Botox injection for headaches.

Headache after botox
Typically, the final results of your botox injection are not apparent until about 2 weeks after your treatment. Most likely your pain will resolve on its own by then. There could be some inflammation within the muscle if the injection was given deeply. Ibuprofen should help with that, and you shouldn't be at increased risk from bruising at this point after your injection if you take ibuprofen.
I hope you are already feeling better,

Botox & Headaches
It is very unusual that Botox would cause a headache. It's possible the technique triggered a headache, but it should resolve soon. I recommend following up with your Dr. and following your current headache protocol. Dr. Emer
