Botox and autoimmune disease
Botox has never been shown in any studies, that I am aware of, to cause an autoimmune reaction such as this.

Neurological symptoms after Botox
Thank you for your question kat_1234. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. It can also be used by neurologist for headaches and other neurological symptoms. It is important to understand the difference between units used and injections because the number of units is what is important, not the number of injections. Neurological symptoms may or may not be associated with autoimmune disease. Some neurological symptoms may be associated with Botox, especially depending on the dose and placement. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
