Has anyone ever had Botox injection hit a nerve

Last March 2013 while receiving a Botox treatment in the forehead, the doctor hit a nerve close to my right eyebrow.  It felt like a nail gun shot through to the back of my head.  I'll skip all the months in between of how I had horrible dry eyes, swollen face, etc., and get to present day.  After the Botox started wearing off, three indentations formed in my forehead: one on either side and one in the middle.  They look like huge dimples and are there 24/7.  My forehead where it meets my part is still numb.  These depressions are quite obvious and very embarrassing.  Has anyone ever had such a situation?  I'm scared these horrible dents will be there permanently.

Are you feeling better?

Thank you for asking. I'm feeling better, however, there is still numbness from the top of my forehead to maybe 2 inches into my hairline. The worst thing is I have very visible indentations in my forehead that are very obvious. They show up in pictures and it's horrible. They resemble dents on a piece of fruit, like a cantaloupe. It's been 15 months since the shot, so I'm concerned the feeling will never come back where the dr hit my nerve. Plan to see a dr for consult one of these days just to get a medical opinion, especially on the unsightly indentations.
