bulbar palsy one month after botox injection
kjoycamp on May, 9, 2014:
I am experiencing similar symptoms 6 weeks after injections. I had 30 units to treat the 11 only. Symptoms of eye pain started 3 days later. Also experiencing overall tiredness and anxiety attacks! Wondering if your symptoms have subsided at all and where did you have the injections and how much?
Ellie on Feb, 18, 2014:
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.
