Radiesse Has Caused Depression and Anxiety - Newark, OH
All of my life I've been teased for having a cleft...
It has been roughly 4 months since the procedure and I've developed a spasm in my chin region. It happens every time I'm startled, or I drop something out of my hand. This occurs 10-20 times a day, and I'm afraid it may be permanent, since there is no sign of it getting better as of yet. When I flex the muscles in my chin, I can see the radiesse, and I'm thinking the spasm has resulted from a superficial injection of the product, and is putting pressure on a nerve or damaged a muscle?
I went back to my injector a few weeks ago and told him my situation, and he looked at me like I was crazy and that he's never heard of such a thing. He then proceeded to tell me it's because I show signs of having a lot of anxiety, and the spasms in my chin are a result of this. Then, he proceeded to prescribe me anxiety medication for this condition. In the beginning, I thought this may be the case, but the medication did nothing to help my condition.
The spasm in my chin has caused me lots of depression and anxiety. It truly is ruining my life. I've developed severe bruxism since my injection because it is stressing me out so much. The constant spasm is so aggravating, and I would do anything to get rid of it. If it occurred once a day that would be fine, but it occurs constantly throughout the day. It is driving me crazy! I don't know what to do anymore. I guess this is the price I pay for being so vain. I never thought I would miss the cleft in my chin so badly. I'm afraid this may be permanent. I would do anything to go back to my pre-op state.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. I'll keep you all updated on my progress in the next 3 months.
