Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I began to have muscle and joint pain and burning in muscles 1 month after my botox injection. I have a positive RA factor. It is now 5 months after botox injection and I am in severe pain.
From this study (2 months ago):
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.
From this study (3 months ago):
After botox got shingles (all three occasions, which were after the shingles shot) Prior to vaccine, I had botox injections for over 15 years and never contacted shingles. I directly the shingles with the botox injections after the shingles vaccine.
