I fx'ed my left patella in a fall where I hit my left side and head. After I had the brace removed, I noticed that my toes on my R foot were curling as I walked. The toes tense and grip when I take a step. I am able to relax them when I think about it, but as soon as I focus on something else, the toes grip on the next step.It has been a year and 1 month with no change. My Doc now wants to try Myobloc, but I've read that it is less effective. Is there another dx that would expalin my symtoms?
I am dx with dystonia in my r foot. My neurologist has given me 2 Botox injections, 20 units & 40 units, with no effect?
Doctor Answers 1
Botox for dystonia
2. It is possible the Botox was not injected into the muscles causing the dystonia,
3. The underlying problem may be muscle weakness after the brace - toes reacting to weak ankle support.
4. Vigorous muscle building of the calf and thigh muscles, balance exercises and stretching may help.
