Botox - How long does it take for the soreness to fade? Normal?

Hey guys... the answer to my question will probably answer itself before anyone on here can answer it I bet.. but, I am feeling a bit frantic so I thought I'd reach out to the forum while I wait for the soreness to fade...

How long does it usually take for the soreness after botox treatment to fade? It REALLY hurts right now!! Especially if I move, like... walk around at all. I need to get to class tonight... I'm worried I'll miss it if I don't start to feel better soon!!

Is this normal? Am I just a wuss? Did it REALLY hurt anyone else after treatment? The needles didn't hurt much at all, some of them I couldn't even feel. It hardly hurt until about 5 minutes after. Since then the pain has just been building. It's been about 45 minutes... maybe an hour since the injections now. Normal? Weird? Not really normal but also not weird? What do people think?

Thanks guys and ladies! :)

Hey guys...

Well. It's been 2 days and my head is still actually sore! The bad pain went a few hours after the shots. But... it's actually still a bit uncomfortable. Not really painful... but, sort of uncomfortable. Did ANYONE else experience soreness or did anyone else feel uncomfortable for this long? I figure it must just be because I just generally hurt so much all the time... that I'm sensitive or something. But.. hmm... anyone?

I just had botox treatment for migraines yesterday-30 shots in my head.  It feels about as soothing as that sounds.  The base of my skull is very tender and sore today.  I have a heating pad and took some IBU's.  Hope it goes away soon...
