Don't get dysport! It's posion
Reply
Just so you all know I spoke to a pharmacist from Dysport he said this poison travels through the body. Don't let these Dr's tell you other wise. We all know our faces before and damage afterwards. It's not from anything else! It's all about $$ for them. Think if one Dr had a heart and gave a damn about us and our pain and suffering, we would be saving people from going through heck. I have proof that studies have been done where they have found Dysport/Botox on ppl's feet, finger nails, even our brains. This study was done years later after being injected. It will never leave our bodies. It's a pure poison! Been trying to stay off the site as it only reminds me I have ruined and aged my once pretty face. I look back now and think I didn't even need it. Was the injector and a so called friend who talked me into it! Stupid of me! Gave into peer pressure. Regret it the rest of my life! So for those of u who are thinking of doing this, DO NOT do it! Our stories are real! We all just didn't have something else. They are trained to say must be something else. Oh I have never had anyone w/side effects like this. I'm sick of it! Unreal! I do know one thing for you Dr's making a killing on our pain and suffering, you will answer to the Lird one day. Pray for forgiveness! All for the simple greed of a dollar! I'm board with a class action lawsuit! I'm board on getting this poison off the market! Funny how a few of you thought I was making up my side effects until u seen my pictures.. For those of u going through it and want relief. Water, vitamins, try and keep moving, face exercises, as hard as it is to do at times try.. You will have good days and bad days.. Just don't let anyone tell u that your face will go back to normal. It never will!!

I never thought you were making it up. I have every symptom. I've never seen your photos though how do I see them? Did the pharmacist say if it ever leaves the body? I'm now concerned that we've shortened our lifespan by having this in our systems. Who knows what else will happen. The nerve pain is the worst for me. That and the fact that I look ten years older and like I had a stroke. That part is depressing but the health part is down right frightening.

Huddie- pharmacist wasn't sure if it leaves our bodies. He couldn't really answer that question. I know what you are saying about aging your face, I have as well. A neighbor asked me not to long ago if I had a stroke. She had no idea I did the poison injection. I almost cried right in front of her. Ppl would guess my age in the 30's before. Someone said what are u 46/47 not to long ago. I am only 40. The guess of 46/47/48 is a norm for me now. That's what I tell ppl now that I am 45. Bc I sure look it. My eyes are off my face has lost volume. Droops pretty bad. I have shared my pics thru email, text, messages how ever u want. Have a handful of ppl we txt on really bad days exchange pics lift each other up. Bc the only ppl who know what we are going thru are ppl going thru it. I will agree we probably shortened life. It attaches to everything I think. Send me a private message and I'll share pics. Right before right after and today. Had a Dr say well dear u went back to normal. I said really bc I couldn't tell.. Showed proff w my drivers license which I had renewed right before injection. Also close up and a date on it. He said well when u turn 40 everything falls. I said not true enough with the lies. It's dysport and you know it. He said would u like another injection I know what I'm doing I said H no!! Sick of Dr's not even kidding. Seen many and one she agreed w me until the head Dr came in. She said it causes face dropping forehead falling. She seen it in my pics.. Think she felt my pain. She must of been a mother. Or she seen my tears- wish that head Dr never came in..

Wow. How old are you really? I have the weird eyes, bunched up bags under, some weird skin in the middle of my forehead and I just look off and much older. I don't know how to send a PM? If you tell me how to do it I am happy to do so. Sorry we are all going through this. I don't really tell people. You are good to just say the truth. I'm too embarrassed. I will show photos on pm too but I need to find before and afters.

Huddie- looks like on June 6 sent u message to show you pics. Just was sending u a pm. Lol. Click on your name and you'll see on. I'm 40 and look about 46-47 now. Pure poison!
Reply
Did I mention how this has effected my memory! I clicked on my name but it doesn't show pm's or how to open them. If you walk me through I'll try and figure this out. Thanks.

I'm glad that I decided to check on side effects before doing this. I was going to call for an appointment as in this office the RN that does Dysport only comes once a month.

Dysport is awful!!! 8 months later I'm still suffering from side effects. Funny how these doctors say it's not related to the injection! My neuro doc said I'm suffering from adverse relaction to the shot. Jesus Christ when will this end!!
Reply
Keeda, Sorry you are still suffering. Not to be negative but I think it lasts forever. I am two years out and while I am certainly better than the past two years I feel like I will never be myself. The facial droop is terrible but it's the health issue that is scary. You need to really detox and eat super clean, get lots of rest. I really don't think there is much we can do except take the best care of ourselves to hopefully optimize our very weakened immune systems. The body wants to heal itself so it's in the fight of its life trying to figure out what to do with the toxin. I would really like to know if it ever fully leaves the body. I will tell you that the headaches are much better, I haven't had the terrible neck and arm pain for about 3 weeks (a record!). So hopefully we all will get longer periods of feeling better in between the flare ups. At this point I would be up for a class action suit. Feel better.

Triggered fibromyalgia and CFS syndrome for me. I'm three years out
Reply
Me too! Not sure if you've read the entire thread. I do speak about that. The CFS was the worst the first year. The fibro is really debilitating and painful and is a nerve ending auto immune disorder. Well this toxin lives in our nerve endings so makes sense. I have had three weeks without fibro pain. I'm hoping the worst is behind me. Sandy, what do you do for it and how were you beforehand? Feel better. I stay off this board to try and be positive but if I feel I can help someone going through this hell I come back on.

How many units did u ? I only had 25....days are getting better but I pray this stuff leaves my body!!
Reply
I honestly don't know. I know it wasn't a lot. It was a few between the brows and I think 2 other shots in my forehead. Very little. Does anyone know if it ever completely leaves? I believe it lies dormant in our nerve endings and it's for this reason something new seems to manifest every other month. Sometimes more often, sometimes less. Gl.

By the way, for anyone thinking of having this but thinks it has to do with quality of doctor it doesn't. I know someone mentioned having it done on a cruise ship. I went to a prominent Park Avenue surgeon. So it's the product that is poison.

Well I don't see it staying with us forever!! Lol I think most horrid suffers had over 25 units. I read ppl having like 60,140 and up and that is why they are worse off. I couldn't imagine having more then what I received....I'd be dead maybe! Ugh I live off allergy medicine n tylonel for the swelling. This stuff is vicious. Gets in my nerves so bad to hear doctors say "just bcuz they never heard of a reaction like this" that's means it's not possible! Lol my neuro doctor said it is directly related to the shit n it's an adverse reaction to it. Funny how none of us had issues prior. That crap is poison! Biggest mistake I ever made doing it.

Keeda11 if your Dr says its from this poison send me a pm I will fly to see him. That's all we need is one Dr to say yes, it's from this crap! I found children's benadryl helps w swelling, took it at night bc it made me sleepy. Also gave me sinus issues which I never had I used Claritin (adult). It will never leave our systems. It lies dormant. I will be honest I worked out everyday, did cardio 9miles a day, I was active and loved life! I will be lucky if I get 3 mi a day in. I force myself to walk. I haven't been able to lift weights again. My shoulder and neck hurt from this poison.
Reply
You are me! I wasn't running the way you did but I worked out 5-6 days a week weight training and cardio. Was strong, all muscle, a bundle of natural energy and my business was in the wellness profession. I didn't lift weights for almost two years! I could barely walk in the beginning (no exaggeration). I now force myself to walk several times a week. Some times the nerve pain down my leg would be so bad I couldn't. I haven't worked because I don't know if tomorrow will be a good day or a bad day. I've now had almost three good weeks which is a record. I was so depressed last winter from the toll this has taken. It's robbed us of our physical/emotional/psychological selves. That ten minutes in the chair completely changed my life for the worse. If you are running 3 miles a day that is tremendous. Gl. My internist absolutely believes me too. She has known me for years.

No not running I walk now! Lol.. I can't run anymore. I force myself to walk. I lifted weights had muscle and healthy . Know what you're feeling 100%. I hurt in places I never hurt before now. I haven't lifted weights in a year now. Made me so sick, I was so yellow in the beginning and went to the er. Er Dr told me he didn't know what Dysport was. He looked it up on his phone. Lol I schooled him. Wish I schooled myself before that day.

I was yellowish too, skin, whites of my eyes and my hair was so brittle. Yes the nerve and neck pain were the worst. I thought I was dying in the very beginning. My internist heard of it but the neurologist, endocrinologist and all the other doctors had not. I spent an absolute fortune in the past two years on trying to heal this. Yes wish I schooled myself too. Since having it and talking to people I've heard lots of stories - a friend has a friend who was paralyzed from botox. It eventually went away but it completely paralyzed one side of her body, another friend had fillers and her face swelled up so badly she went to ER and couldn't go out for two weeks - but it's all completely safe! I'm sure people have died but the families have taken hush money.

My neuro said that the "toxins" should be gone but I was having a adverse reaction to the shot. I could actually feel the liquid in my forehead. It's going away but I hope this stuff goes fully away. I see an allergist in the 29th not sure he will be able to do much. This whole experience has been a complete nightmare. Ppl do get better but it takes time and it's all depends on how ur body fights this off. I will say I'm much better then I was and I'm post 8months. I pray everyday for recovery
Reply
Also I'm beginning to think some of the pain could be muscle or nerve damage. I'm going to get my neuro doc to run test. I'm determined to come to a resolution to recovery!!

I had dysport done on the 27th of June 2014 while on a cruise ship with horrifying effects on my eyes! I have trouble seeing properly at the moment which is a real worry; my once very pretty curved eyebrows are now just one straight line - seems as if I move my eyes they go really up on the sides? Eyelids are drooping and heavy. I look like a stranger. I am absolutely devastated and constantly in tears. How long will this effect last? Will I get my old face back? If so, how soon? This was the first time I ever done something like this - wish I never did! Does dysport actually work for anyone?
