Side effects after Botox
Thank you for your question Roomew. A bruise or hematoma is not uncommon after an injectable treatment. They can last up to two weeks. In our office we treat bruises with a laser as soon as the next day and the bruises resolve much more quickly, usually within one to three days. I have never heard of numbness radiating to the leg or ringing in the ears after a Botox treatment. I do not know if this is from Botox or not. I recommend consulting with your doctor and a neurologist for further recommendations. Good luck!

The side effects of the Botox that you are describing are really unusual. I would return to your treating physician and have your general physician examine you as well for the ear ringing and numbness. Please keep us posted. Best, Dr. Green
Permanent Nerve Damage After Botox?

Have a medical check
Botox is not associated with numbness as it is a muscle relaxant. The nerve ringing will need an exam of your ears which your medical internist can do.
Botox wears off and children with cerebral palsy often get long term treatment of around 200 units at a time for spasms.
