Try for info on how it works. There have been reports of decreased migraine frequecncy in patients receiving botox injections to decrease wrinkles.I know that migraines and clusters are not the same but my chronic pain has features of both disorders. Both disorders are neurovascular headaches and many of the treatments are the same i.e. imitrex, seizure medications,verapamil. No one is sure if this really helps or why but it is a new treatment available. I'm chronic and I feel that there are times when I am experiencing severe classic cluster headaches but there are also time when I feel I am left with residual pain probably stemming from the neck muscles which have been contacting so long due to pain.
Has anyone seen the myofascial pain diagram for pain arising from the sternocleidomastoid muscle and read about the nasal congestion and lacrimation that can be associated with these trigger points? Try the book by Travell and Simons ?spelling
