Is it safe to use Botox if you have been diagnose with Myoadenylate Deaminase Deficiency?

I have used Botox for approximately 10 years. I am experiencing severe muscle cramps/pain, especially being active. I am concern having Botox done since I am not sure what impact it would have on my condition?

The symptoms described are related to MDD (fatigue, muscle pain and cramps, being the most common especially after vigorous exercise). MDD does not cause muscle weakness often but muscle cells may be eventually damaged after prolonged disease and develop weakness. Botox may exacerbate any weakness of the targeted muscles, so caution is advisable by using smaller doses.
