Had Botox for the first time 8 months ago and have had increasing head pain since. Why? Will it go away? Ever?

Headache After Botox
Botox can definitely cause headaches but in most cases they are mild and short acting. Although Botox can cause headaches this is generally considered a rare side effect. The exact cause of Botox headaches is not certain but it is believed that the most likely cause is from over contraction of certain muscles in the face. This side effect should resolve within the next few weeks.Headaches can happen after Botox.It is not uncommon for some people to experience a headache for up to a week after a Botox treatment.
Thank you for your question.
Botox typically will last up to 6 months, depending on how your body metabolizes the medication.
It may be a good idea to book consultation with a neurologist.
