Hi Fellow HSPers

I received what I thought was a regular dose of Botox for spasticity in my calf muscles in Feb. I have experienced relief in the past with little side effects.

I learnt quite quickly that I was given quite a larger dose than usual. I had a severe reaction and was hospitalised for 5 weeks, 2 1/2 months later still at 50% pre botox.

Just a warning to others having botox treatment, be careful of large increases in dosage!
