I've got congenital ptosis. Now 65 w/chronic migraines. Well-trained Neuro proposes botox. What are chances it'll worsen?

So much depends on details.
Here is the thing. The botox for migraines pretty much paralyzed the frontalis muscle-the muscle that lifts the eyebrows. As someone with congenital ptosis, you open your eyes using the frontalis muscle. For that reason, it is very appropriate to be concerned. I recommend that you consider seeing a neuro-ophthalmologist for this rather than a general neurologists.
