What Can I Do About Side Effects from Botox?

I had Botox 2 weeks ago and have been experiencing a feeling of constriction around my neck, pressure in my head, a lump in my throat, difficulty focusing my eyes, dizziness, overall weak feeling in my muscles and anxiety. I went to an urgent care 5 days ago and received a steroid pack, but it doesn't seem to help. Is this normal? Is there anything that can be done or is it a waiting game?

Botulinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) and undesireable side effects

It is most likely unrelated to the Botulinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) but it is important to relate this to your surgeon
