Tingling after Botox likely has a different cause
Thank you for your question Lee20f. I am sorry to hear
about your situation. Botox
is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial
expressions. Botox does not cause the symptoms you are describing, but a number of other conditions are associated with such symptoms. It may be a coincidence that it started at the time you received Botox. If you are confident it is due to Botox, then it will wear off in 3-4 months. For my patients with neurologic concerns, I recommend additional testing with a neurologist in addition to test done by a general physician. Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
If you feel that this is botox related it will return back to normal in 3-4 months. I would recommend that you see a neurologist regarding your symptoms.
I am sorry to hear that this is happening, and am glad you are reaching out for some answers. I must agree here that your symptoms (though you would thing Botox would do this because it works on nerves) are not those that would be Botox related. I would see a Neurologist for a further evaluation, there are other medical reasons for this and Botox being done 7 weeks prior is very likely coincidental.
Tingling and Numbness from Botox
The symptoms that you are describing are neurologic and not typical of Botox. I would definitely would consult a neurologist to evaluate your symptoms. Best, Dr. Green
Botox with Numbness and Tingling
This is not a typical response to botox and I suggest you see a neurologist to evaluate the nerves in this area to see if they are affected and what the cause may be. It should be that you have bells palsy coincidentally or a systemic neuropathy. Best, Dr. Emer.
