I've had botox in the past for my forehead wrinkles, can't stand them! Anyone have botox injections and it's ok if you have Llyme's?
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Confirmed Lymes on 12/8/09 before my new antibiotic protocal from my LLMD, I  Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics, not much better. Supplements: Threelac, multi, iron,Allimed Allicin, Apple Cider Vinegar, very low yeast/sugar/wheat  No UC meds at this time.

I did my botox, between treatments of Doxycycline, I mentioned it to the clinic and they said its no problem, did not ask the general doc. I am fine, have not noticed anything different than the other times I did it. I started with 400mg doxycycline 2 days after.

I've been thinking about getting it done myself. It is said to be good for headaches too but for me, I want to get rid of a nasty mean line in between my eyebrows. I guess it's a squinting line but I hate it. It's pretty deep too. I wonder if botox would even help because it's there even when I'm not squinting.

I love my botox shots. I do the forhead, between the brows and crows feet and boy what a difference in my appearance and it makes me feel better. Thanks, I feel better doing it again.

It is amazing how powerful "doing something for you" can be.  I am the same after I get my hair cut and colored.  I feel so good and pretty!!  I always ending up taking better care of myself when I think I look good. 
 
On a side note.  I have had botox on a nasty spastic leg muscle.  It worked like a charm.  Botox is also now being used for neurgenic bladder with success.

I had botox done on my forehead before, as used to compete in fitness competitions and had bad headaches from it afterwards ,had to lay down for 2 days after wards, i just had started with the lyme symptoms, and my symptoms have been mostly in my head with pressure, headaches ,dizzy, pressure and pulsing feeling ,sore glands, so the botox for me made my symptoms much worse, this just suks

ToGuy: Ugh! I'm sorry that happened to you. With Lyme, it's like we can't ever find something that doesn't give us symptoms. My symptoms are close to yours so I wonder what would happen?


ineisa: I love that name. Is that your real name?

Hi TOguy (and others)

Your situation sounds just like my sister's. She was bitten by a tic in march, got botox a few weeks later, and now has headaches, head and body pulsations (and for several months had anxiety and depression). She believes the botox made everything much worse.

BOTOX HAS 'TOXIN' IN ITS NAME--NOT A GREAT COMBO FOR LYME DISEASE!!

Please feel free to email me at heywaterpark2@aol.com

Thanks,

I asked the botox doctor if it was ok to get done with antibiotics and she said just as long as you dont lay down for 2 hours after the shots ,its o.k! The antibiotics has nothing to do with the botox! They just suggest you dont lay down so it dosent move down! I also had a bad headache one time and I asked the ER doctor if it would have anything to do with botox and he said no ,if it got in your bloodstream you would die!  There are risk with everything you do! But it is used to help headaches for some people! and jaw pain also!

Hi,
 
I recovered from Central Nervous System Lyme ( CNS) Lyme in 2007 but still experience the symptoms any time my immune system is compromised or I'm coming down with a cold.  Recently, I got the flu shot and a few days afterwards I started to feel "lymey" as we call it- foggy, anxious, nauseous, sensitive to light and movement.  Humidity also triggers these symptoms. 
 
So, I decided that I wanted to try Botox.  I'm 35 and well, the lines are starting to set in.  I have read numerous things on the internet about Lyme conflicting/not conflicting with Botox injections.  Honestly, I feel that everyone probably reacts differently since Lyme isn't a cookie-cutter disease.  I had the injections in my forehead a few days ago and haven't felt great and I believe that it has aggravated my lyme symptoms.  I'm a little nervous about it and I hope that they subside in the next few days.  Has anyone else reported this?  I love how the Botox looks but it is not worth it to me if I am going to have to deal with these symptoms of anxiety, fogginess, nausea, eye pain, heaviness behind my eyes, etc.
 
Would love any feedback!
Thanks.
