I went to have botox done on my forehead about a month ago. After two weeks, I started to notice a small pimple. I treated it and it slowly went away however more came back and its more like a patch of acne on my forehead thats red and aggravated. I havent started any new medications or changed my routine and yet here they are.

From this study (4 months ago):
Have had neck, shoulder and arm pain off and on for years. 2014 MRI discovered spinal arthritis in lumbar with degenerated disc and in spinal arthritis (severe) in cervical area along with bulging discs. I am now having sciatica pain in buttock along with legs jerking and shaking. I am now having neck,shoulder and arm pain along with sudden episodes of arm and wrist drop.
In early 2013 I started having weakness in ankles both legs. As the year progressed the weakness expanded into my lower legs. In October 2013 I was diagnosed with ALS due EMG test. Now (February 2015) I am 95% wheelchair bound and experiencing all these spine problems. My arms are starting to weaken too - both at the same time.
All my symptoms in legs and arms are symmetrical- started and progressing in both legs or both arms at same time. I have learned that jaw problems can be caused by spine also. I can't help but wonder if my ALS is being caused by my spine problems.
