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.
Most doctors that I've talked to refuse to believe that my symptoms were from the procedure, although I've found several data on the Internet that hyaluronic acid sometimes causes an autoimmune responses.
