Husband had large forearm contracture that was very painful. In 2014 Nurses & PT had recommended Botox as it is used for post stroke patients. He had a stroke 7 yrs earlier in 2006. We made appt with Physical Med. and husband was approved for Botox injections. Within a couple of days following the 1st & only injection, Doug had clear signs of Myasthenia Gravis (droppy eye, slurred speach, trouble swallowing, very weak arms & legs, etc). We contacted Phys Med and reported the side effects. However, could not get any drs to understand the symptems nor were they familiar with MG, so it took over 2 yrs and a Myasthenia Crisis to get diagnosed correctly. Husband, Doug, has been hospitalized for the past 4 weeks as he could not swallow at all. His mouth and throat were extremely weak, and thusly his speach was very difficult to understand and it exhausted him to attempt to communicate so he was writing messages. The main treatment which has helped and brought about improvement is the Plasmapherisis exchanges and steroids. Doug had 5 Plasmapherisis last week, and will have 1 again at the end of this week, and 3 more next week, and then 1 more on the 3rd week.
