Yesterday I received my first round of Botox, for migraines and my eye spasms and it left me a little freaked out.
I woke up with a slight headache yesterday and took some Aleve, my dystonia was also flaring and I was having trouble with my hands, and the zaps were back in full force. I didn’t care I was ready for anything that might offer relief.
By the time I was about to get the shots the cute little headache had me in tears pressing my head against the office wall. I’d asked the receptionist if I could reschedule but she kept insisting the dr would see me soon…
So he did my eyes first, then 2 quick jabs to my temples. It hurt but was a welcome distraction from the headache that was brewing. The 3rd prick was in the back of my head… and I felt a zap so intense it threw me out of the chair.
The Dr asked if I was all right, said we were done. Looked at my regular neuros notes and asked when I had my last MRI. I knew what he was thinking as MS keeps coming up so I told him I was scheduled for an MRI today although my lumbar punch in December was clean. He said he wanted to see me in a week and to bring the MRI films not the cd.
Since this was my 1st time I really have no idea if this was normal or not.
I’m baffled that we were done at 3 injections. A few people in my dystonia group think he may have hit a nerve, which is possible although I’ve experienced that with ESIs in my spine although it was a much sharper jolt.
I’m also a little freaked out that he wants my MRI films next week.
I had to move my MRI back as this migraine won’t quit and I knew I couldn’t handle the noise.
Thoughts? I’m new to this (Botox) and don’t know what’s normal.
