Aim: The aim of the study was to review the quality of life of the patients with daily chronic headache (CDH) and determine the effectiveness of Botulinum toxin type A (BTA) influence on improving the quality of life by reducing the daily headache. Material & Methods: 54 patients, from both sexes, with a minimum age of 18 years old were studied. The inclusion criteria were the presence of primary daily chronic headache with more than 4-hour duration, a frequency of 15 days or more monthly, in the last three months and disease duration of 3 years for the treatment of CDH using BTA. The study involved 54 patients, of whom where 31 women and 23 men with an average age of 42 years. The patient’s condition was evaluated on the third day, on the 7th day and on the 15th day after the BTA injection and assessed every 15 days for 3 months. The efficacy of BTA was evaluated by several measurements of VAS (Visual Analog Scale), Headache Intake Questionnaire: HSQoLQ (Headache Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire), HMQ (Headache Management Questionnaire), HDQ (Headache Disability Questionnaire). Results: After 3 months 2 (4%) patients had no changes, 7 (13%) patients with less than 50 percent reduction in pain, 23 (43%) reported 70 to 95 percent pain relief, and 22 (40%) had complete relief. Conclusion: The work presented here has profound implications for future studies of BTA injections for patients with CDH. The obtained results testify to an improvement in the quality of life of patients with CDH against the background of injections of BTA.
