These are all signs that are suspicious for a stroke and you should be scheduling a consultation with your internist.

Signs of STROKE should NOT be mistaken for Botox

You are describing an evolving stroke. I would take an Aspirin and go to the nearest full service ER. These signs are NOT ordinarily associated with Botox.

Botox Side Effects

These symptoms do not sound like they are from your Botox treatment. They sound more like those seen due to a stroke. I would advise getting immediate medical attention.

High blood pressure is not a side effect of botox - Get medical attention immediately

+1

Botox relaxes muscles.  If it would have any effect at all, which is hard to envision, on blood pressure it would be to reduce it.

The symptom complex you are describing is serious and in need of immediate medical attention.  These could be the symptoms of a stroke, which has a very limited amount of time to be reversed if at all possible.  Please go to your nearest emergency room immediately to be evaluated.
