I have suffered the unbearable pain of cluster headaches for 20 years. I take max-alt and breath oxygen for relief. I need to know if Botox shots will work to stop some of the pain associated with cluster headaches and if it does can a physician that is not a neurologist administer the Botox? any help is appreciated as only cluster sufferers understand.
Anyone who is certified to administer botox is certified for all cases. Botox could really help your cluster headaches and give you relief for up to 8 years, however, at that time you’ll have to have it injected again. Best of luck to you.
