Does Dysport Have Any Effect on Sinus Issues?

I have had on-going sinus issues and started using Dysport last year. Sinus drainage in the back of the throat has disappeared, no more chronic coughing.

Dysport is NOT a Sinus drying medication

Although Medicis, the Dysport people, may be overjoyed to hear of a potential new application for their agent, I can think of no scientific application of how minute amount of Botulinum A placed in superficial facial muscles could affect post-sinus drip and chronic cough. Coincidence? Miracle? Link yet to be discovered?  You decide.
