Can Botox Make Autoimmune Disease Worsen?
I have been receiving botox injections in my eye area due to an eye problem as a result of bells palsy which occured over 26 years ago. It is more that 3 years now that I have been receiving the injections every 4 to 5 months. It has been now a little over 2 years I have felt extreme fatigue and muscle pain to the point where it interferes with my daily activities and which at times is so severe that I do not know how to deal with it . I have been also seeing doctors for the past 2 years who have told me that the symptons were due to depression and menopause. However just this week I have some results from the immunologist that I have Lupus. I am now wondering could it be that I have had an autoimmune desease for awhile now and the botox injections have made things worse for me , and led me to get Lupus.
