Vertigo After Botox - Georgia

In December of 2006 I got my first botox injection before a vacation trip to Hawaii. I felt a little problem with balance the day after and went back for my follow up a week later. They gave me additional injections around my eyes and forehead...the next morning I was in the emergency room with severe vertigo and right beating nystagmus. I'm in healthcare and I KNOW that these injections contributed to my illness. I have nerve felt "normal" since that day...Dec 20, 2012...will never forget it!! I have been diagnosed with Meniere's, but instead of episodes, I have ringing in the ears, vertigo (not as severe as the first episode) and hearing loss. Tell me doctors...if it is a neurotoxin...why can't it damage nerves (as in vestibular-cochlear nerve) to someone that may be immune compromised. I am tired of hearing there is no relation just because the studies have not been done. I have chalked it up to "shit happens" and have learned to live with it and just strive to be the healthiest I can be. It definitely has changed my life and I regret it every day. Buyer beware...
