    I never had hyperthyroidism at all, and the last time I had a test for that , was 3 months ago, 1 week after injecting botox for the third time with a new doctor, I do not know what he used and how he did it, I had aweful symptoms , sever headaches, pain in the eyes, sore throat, difficulty breathing sometimes, being moody, having too dry skin, itchy body, anxiety attacks which leaded me to see a doctor. We had all type of blood test to see what's going on, and my TSH which always was around 1.80-2 had dropped to 0.21 which is amazingly unbelievable for me.
    Anyways that's my idea that botox can cause that, since it happened to have over active thyroid within a week or so.
