Botox injections have been reported to have some rare systemic side effects, but usually not in cosmetic dosages. I would immediately contact your treating physician and consult a neurologist to evaluate your symptoms. Please let me know what happens.
After Botox injection 12 hours later I have tingling in hands/feet. Is this normal? Does it go away? Anything help?

Botox injections and tingling hands/feet
Tingling in hands/feet 12 hours after Botox
- Assuming you had a dose of 60 units or less, the Botox is unlikely to cause this.
- If you were anxious and breathing very fast - this can cause these symptoms. (The treatment is breathing into and out of a paper bag, unless tingling subsides.
- Sudden temperature changes can also cause such tingling.
- If there is no obvious explanation and it happens again, see a neurologist to discuss causes. Best wishes.
