Are headaches and pressure-like feeling around eye/eyes a side effect of Xeomin?

I had 40 units of xeomin for the first time 4 days ago (Thusrday) a few on my foreahead and then for my cross feet expression lines. On Friday afternoon I started to have a moderate pain like inside of my left eye coupled with headaches. The pain in my eye is mostly gone, only when I move it to the left but my headache is there. I mostly feel it on top of my left pressure. I cannot function normally. How long does this normally last?
