Can a Person Become Hypersensitive to Botox?
Five years ago, I gave Botox a try for migraine and cosmetic use. I liked the results for cosmetic but the jury was still out for migraines.
Last year, on March, I decided to try a "migraine protocol" that my neurologist recommended. Unlike the 20-27 units I was getting for cosmetic reasons, the protocol was for 100 units (all over the head). I experience some new and very scary side effects that included eye droop and swelling of the lids.
One year has passed and I went to my dermatologist who has been administering the Botox for the past 5 years without problem. That night, I could feel the tingling in my face and left eye which was most effected before. Today, there was more eye drooping, burning eyes, and swollen lids.
I have personally decided that I can no longer tolerate Botox. Am in danger of the eye droop not correcting itself since this is a second bad episode? I received 21 units forehead received 12 units and 9 units between the brow. Thank you!
