injections

Yesterday I saw the movement disorder specialist and he injected me with 60 units in 8 places, but none were on my eye lids. I didn't know some of you were being injected right on the eyelids. must be painful. the neurologist that had seen be before had only injected me twice. the first time was 20units and the 2nd time was 40 units. I hope it works this time.
God Bless becca

Hi Becca,
My doctors have always injected me on the upper eyelid at the inner and outer corners. It is a little more sensitive in that area and does hurt a little more than some of the other sites, especially at the inner corners.
I won't have to have the upper lid done anymore since I had the upper Myectomy done a couple of months ago. Good news.

Hope your injections work well for you this time. Keep us posted on it.

Shirley in AR.

Becca:

I receive 2 injections on each upper lid at the lash line. Seems to help.

Becca ... I get injections at each corner of the eyelid. As Shirley says, it's a bit of a pain, but must have a purpose.
