No. The first round of Botox (30 injections) did nothing. In fact, I'm just now (April 29) in the end stages of an O.N. episode that began March 31. (6 wks after the Botox) I was nearly crazy with the pain. I have 2 more rounds of Botox, and then I will seek a surgical solution. No, my neurologist had never even heard of occipital release surgery when I mentioned it. Can you tell me about occipital release therapy?
