Hello. I’m now 11 months out from my terrible botox experience. I’m looking for people with similar experiences as me who would be willing to let me give their information (or their situation, date of injection, diagnosis etc to start) when contacting attorneys. Following detrimental botox injections I was hospitalized with botulism as well as autonomic dysfunction and respiratory failure on exertion as well as abnormal heart rhythms. After 3 months of home oxygen I was then diagnosed with heart failure. I’m still on medications to help and have an array of other side effects. 11 months out I’m positive I have permanent damage and I’d like to pursue this. Please email me privately on here. Thank you.
Hi all, just thought I will share with you I have also done bioresonance test now and it has shown botulinum toxin in my system stil.. Doctor who did the test has told me about Oxy Max Oxygen in drops to drink, she said people with Lyme get very good resuts with this and it could also be helpful for botulism toxin. Also I am going for consultation about ozonotherapy and high dosw of vitamin C in drip. Dont know if anyone tried that all yet but I thought it could be very helpful as Vit C is never absorbed fully by our system and terapeutic results are when given intravenously..
Here is link to Oxy drops
I will post about it when I get more info.
Sending all healing thoughts xoxo

Hi, this is my first post so sorry if it is long. I am
A hemiplegic migraine sufferer and have permanent visual symptoms. I decided to have Botox in my forehead in may 2012 and it didnt relieve my headaches but I had no side effects apart from eyelid twitching.
I then opted to have Botox in the back of my neck in august2013. 2 days after this I ended up in hospital with a severe migraine, my right side of my face,arm,mouth and chest was numb for 18 hours and I was sick.I also had a high white blood cell count and low blood pressure but doctors didn’t think it was Botox that was the trigger.
Since hospital I have got permanent tremors in my head/neck/left arm and left leg with right sided facial weakness and right arm weakness.my left eyelid twitches along with my right cheek. Also I have tinnitus since july2012 which came along with vertigo and I can hear blood rushing in my neck and ear (feels like a heartbeat)
I’m unsure if this tremor and weakness is the Botox or migraine or something else??
I would really appreciate any input.
Hello, I have had a laser on my face on December 2011 and 1 month before, the injection of 125 dysports units on my face.

Today neurologic symptoms are decreasing but my face is swelling, i souffer of a very big edema. Does anyone have the same edema? And does It disappears? Tank you
I have had dystonia- generalized, cervical dystonia and dysphonia for over 20 plus years. Here in the US , I got 7 treatments of Botox and then developed antibodies. Then was thrown into clinical trials with Myobloc. Got antibodies to that toxin after 6 years. But worked well for pain.Everything has been trial and error with tons of meds on and off. IN 2004 had Deep Brain Stimulation, which took a long time for the right settings to be found. Am headed for my 4th battery change. But my doc suggested use of a toxin for break-thru symptoms. Since I am immune to Botox, Myoobloc, cant have Xeomin either, my other option is Dysport.
ANY GOOD EXPERIENCES WITH DYSPORT. Does it last longer as I have heard with less side effects ??
Still working as an ICU RN, but getting a bit tired physically to say the least.. Dont want to go back to oral meds- could not function , felt like my brain was in a constant fog. Dont like needles either !
Hi everyone thank you all for your questions about the filler that was used in the glabella area.It was juvederm ultra 2 and it is not FDA approved for this area.I was not informed of this at the time,I am now losing my sight in my right eye,going deaf in my left ear,the tinnitus is now 24 hours a day not just at night,I am getting pains in my heart as I am continuously fighting for breath and the burning and brain suffocation just doesnt stop.I contacted Allergan who said it was my fault my body rejected it,4 solicitors now do not want to take the case on as they say it will be hard to prove, the hospital doctors stated to me,my mum and husband that my brain nerves were sensitized and I had suffered facial and brain nerve damage from the filler.Yet this has only been recorded as facial nerve damage on paper.I am due to see the neurologist on Monday as his nurse kept contacting me when I was discharged with yet another packet of pills this time duloxetine.She would ask if I was ok but I would say no not all in fact I’m worse and feel like my brain is suffocating 24 hours a day, I have dementia with sundowning at 41 years old apart from that yeh I’m great.The tablets did not help the sames as all the other ones I’ve been prescribed I’ve tried them all.Ive also discovered that the enzyme I was injected with 7 weeks later to try to disperse the juvederm is actually off label and more dangerous than the filler.Even though juvederm is highly cross linked with streptococcus euquistrian a disease that causes strangles disease in horses,they literally suffocate,hyaluronidase is derived from pigs.So basically I have two chemicals,one worse than the other causing theses symptoms of brain dysfunction for months with no relief in sight.As this is such a rare occurrence juvederm getting into the brain,no one knows wether it will wear off or not.I can’t live like this anymore in this burning dementia state everyone, looks at me as if I’ve got cancer because of the weight loss and no doubt the black eyes and drawn appearance due to the lack of sleep.My chance to have another child and foster is gone because I don’t even know what day it is.Its as if someone is playing a movie like groundhog day and I’m in it but can’t get out.I pray there is a reason for all this suffering,why everyone has had to endure this on this site and many others.I did see the packet of juvederm that was opened but the hyaluronidase just came out of a bottle I have no record of that just the juvederm.Its like I’m trying to prove I’m not mental it’s your worst nightmare and then some.I do think I’m better off dead because it’s like trying to prove the impossible,the paper that was suppose to run the story says the editor is now dragging his heels as the clinic are trying to stop them printing it,so my mum said we will go up to the clinic with some placards and wait until the press come and we can tell them we are boycotting the clinic.I do not have a copy of the original consent form I signed either, the clinic won’t give it to me.So I’m stuck like this forever slowly suffocating and dying getting worse by the day, I basically paid someone for a frontal lobe chemical lobotomy and to go blind,but it’s safe Allergan states, there’s no chance of a reaction,well it isn’t,it’s a toxic chemical but I did it,it’s my fault I ruined my life,so I’ve got to live like this like a lab test animal until I succumb to its purpose,which is to literally burn and decay my brain,please forgive the depressing rant but I am backed into a corner with no escape, why don’t doctors read this site so they can see the suffering and do something.I pray for you all at least if I do succumb to this,it’s documented on here I have at least some proof what this stuff has done, and even though I have never met any of you it’s been wonderful to share my darkest hours with you all to know someone is always there just a few short clicks away I never thought in my wildest dreams my life would end like this,when all I wanted was to plump up my cheeks,I will keep posting as long as I can,if the doctors try to lock me away at least hopefully there’s this site that proves I’m not insane.Thank you everyone for being on here you’ve probably saved more people than you know of,god bless you kx
I have had 8 botox injections over the last 6 years and was never given any indication that botox was anything but safe. My last injection was on April 24, 2012 and I almost immediately had an adverse reaction. Within the next few days, dry mouth and eyes, muscle pains in arms and legs, flu-like symptoms, followed by lump in throat feeling and severe muscle stiffness and weakness, pain between shoulder blades, blurry vision, ringing in ears, pressure in head and temples, tightness in chest, burning during urination followed by frequent urge to urinate and one day loss of bladder control, shallow breathing and shortness of breath, dizzy, chills, tremors, fatigue, loss of strength, can’t think straight, tingling in arms, legs and red itchy hot hands, bad gag reflex. I had a feeling of my diaphram relaxing and have had terrible nausea, indigestion, and bowel issues. Very anxious at times. I have lost ten pounds in 5 weeks and I am eating every 3hours. I was 140lbs at 5′ 7″. Now I am already down to 130lbs with no muscle tone. I have been back to my dermatologist who denied that it could have been the botox and referred me to my family doctor for anxiety/depression. I wanted to scream, I was fine before the shot and very healthy, working out an hour every day and now I am wasting away with no energy and totally fatiqued. My family doctor thought I had a virus and let it go for a week before I went back even more fatiqued and had lost bladder control. She did bloodwork which all came back normal and a week later had another appointment with different doctor that believed me and put me on 5 day steroid pack. Since then I went back she said I had to put up with the side effects, spent 1 day at the ER getting fluids, EKG, more bloodwork all which came back fine, but I still feel like crap. I have a neurologist appointment this week to rule out anyother diseases or causes. Please help me! How long is this going to last!!! If I keep losing weight at this rate I’ll be dead in a month or so. Why is there so little that anyone (Doctors) know about this and how to treat it!
