From this study (4 days ago):
A friend of mine has been on Duragesic/Fentinol patches for nearly 10 years and has HORRIBLE nightmares. They are so bad that the entire family is affected as he awakens them nightly by yelling out horrible words and frightening everyone including the family pet!

bulbar palsy one month after botox injection
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.
