Botox probably is not an effective regimen for relieving tmj related headache.

I had ten days of relief after my first set of injections. My pain specialist says I will even have more relief after the next set. I know this is not a cure but if it can help me to get thru the day without severe pain then it is worth doing!!!

botox is dangerous...try prolotherapy.

when my tmj/neck problems/headaches flare up these treatments help tremendously and are not dangerous

I have TMJD.  I lost major teeth on my right side from grinding.  I have occasional lost grip right-sighted and vertigo stemming from the right.  I have two splints which are adjusted often.  I take muscle relaxers.  Mine is mostly stress related so I am seeing a psychiatrist for antianxiety Meds.  It all seems affected.  I had severe pain, a ten and felt my jaw was dropping down, but it seemed like adjustment and healing.  I am feeling relief outweighing the pain.  So although a lot of patients at the University Med Center are going the neurology route, I am sticking with this for now.  I will ask my dentist about injections.
