Immediately after getting Juvederm injection to my nasolabial folds, I started feeling like I was getting a cold. After I came home and took a nap, I woke up with a very sore throat, fever, and tingling in my chest. It felt very much like a flu. The symptoms later went on to painful eyes, sinuses, and extreme fatigue.
5 months later I still suffer from extremely inflamed sinuses, even though no infection is or has every been present. When I massage my nasolabial folds to dissipate the Juvederm, I always get a mild fever, sore throat, burning eyes, and the flu-like symptoms all over again. I did blood tests and it shows positive antinuclear antibodies.
I can't wait for it to be out of my system, as after all the medical tests and the painful nuances, this has been a very expensive procedure. Ironically, the injection looked very good.
