How Can I Get Rid of Botox Side Effects?
on 27 Nov 2012
I recently had botox injected in my forehead (this is my 3rd time) for tension I hold between my eyebrows - the first 2 times, it really helped me. This time however, I believe the injection nurse injected improperly. I had to go back after 1 week as the muscles I was most concerned about calming were not even effected by the initial shots so she gave me additional shots to really freeze it up - mistake. I am sure she injected up to high and it migrated above the hairline and caused all the surrounding muscles to try and "move" on their own to compensate. By the 3rd week after injections I began having severe headaches (migraines) and horrible muscle tension and pain in my upper shoulders, neck and scalp muscles and twitches in my facial muscles too. I have been unable to go back to work for over 2 weeks so far and am in a constant state of pain and fear. I have twinges and nerve stuff happening in my muscles all over, especially in my neck. My eardrums spasm frequently and I am so scared this will not go away - ever - and that life will be unbearable. I cannot live on muscle relaxers. My office job is very intensive and has a high degree of responsibility. I don't know what to do and the doctors at Kaiser nor the plastic surgeon's office where the botox was performed will give me any help or straight answers to if there is an anti-toxin I can take. I feel lost, frustrated and depressed. I just want my life back. Can anyone give me some advice? Is there any way to make the plastic surgeon take responsibility or prove the injection nurse was negligent? Has it attached itself to my nervous system? (It's now been about 6 weeks since my initial injections). Thank you!
