Dysport - Really Bad Flu-like Symptoms - Texas

- 18 Apr 2011
Received Dysport injections (to help with migraines, had done this twice before using botox and had zero problems) on a Monday, had headache and nausea for a few days (no big deal), then blurry vision, even double vision for a portion of the fourth day. About a week after initial injection, I began to have extreme fatigue (EXTREME) and flu-like symptoms. VERY very sore throat, cough, lungs feel "heavy", just feel awful. Honestly, I almost never get colds/flu, I don't have allergies, I am normally very healthy (except for the migraines).
When I called to report this to the practitioner, she said I she flu symptoms were not a result of or associated with Dysport. I call BS on that. Still, what proof do I have? None. If this lasts for the duration (4 months?) my quality of life will be pretty pathetic.
I will never ever try Dysport again.
The doctor that I had planned on seeing is a good doctor. As for the esthetician, I really cannot rate her other than she denied ever having heard of sore throat and/or flu like symptoms being linked to dysport, based on that only, I will not recommend her.
