Is It Normal To Have A Stiff Neck from Juvederm For Several Months? What Caused It?

I had Juvederm injected on my face. 2 day's later I had a stiff neck & headache which lasted for 3 months. I felt ill also. Why would the Juvederm affect me like that? I called the Dr's nurse she said she had never heard of such a thing. Nothing was ever done about it so I just suffered. I know it had something to do with the injection. I know my body when something isn't right.

I also agree that it does not sound related and have never seen such a thing happen. If you are not feeling well you should see your primary care physician

It sounds very unusual that they would be associated in any way. But it would be a good idea to see your doctor for evaluation.
