My first Botox injection, I only had 6 units to the crows feet. A considerably small dose. I went to the ER 7 hours later after dining with my family. I felt a coldness come over me and suddenly my face and hands were going numb. My heart was racing and I was hyperventilating too. I felt like I was going to die. I immediately thought it was the Botox and went to the ER, however I was diagnosed with a panic attack and sent home on Ativan. Its 2 weeks later and I'm still extremely dizzy and feel off balance. The dizziness seems to get worse when I'm at work or at social functions. I have severe anxiety which was never a problem before and desperately praying for healing. Has anyone else had problems with equilibrium/dizziness? Lesson learned. Vanity is evil and sometimes we have to pay the consequences. Do not get Botox.
