Botox Side Effects -I'm Gonna Query Them?

Hi Everybody,

Now that I've come out of the long (4 weeks less 2 days) side effects of my last injections of 90 units of botox I've been reflecting.

I got double vision for 6 days, blurred vision (perhaps some due to the night cream and day drops) until about 3 days ago, burning pain, hearing distorted and sinusitus started the day of the injections and in general I was a mess, my body seemed to be in shock.

I know we have discussed many of these conditions before but it seems to me that a lot of `you guys' don't get all of these side effects together - am I right?

Sally, you said, you get 100 units of botox and it took 10 days for them to start working - other people seem to get botox working within a couple of days. I know we are all different, but? I've made an appointment for the 20th to see the neurologist about my concerns. Any ideas to confront him with - all welcome? Thanks.

P.S. This also came about because someone mentioned that he and his wife went to France (wife as cervical torticollis) and the doctor there said `North American doctors give far too large doses of botox in their opinion'. The wife was given much smaller amount botox and appears to be handling her condition well.
