I've had Botox injections in my legs every 3 months for multiple sclerosis spasticity for the last year or so. It's not working despite their saying so. So I had double the dosage on the 2nd February. It does not work! I am looking for another method as I am taking time off from work and know they are fed up with this, although not directly. Thank you.

Yes, happy lady here. I had Botox for multiple sclerosis spasticity, and foot spasms are gone. My whole leg is stronger. Thank you doctor.

Botox reduced multiple sclerosis spasticity in my left foot, though not entirely. I will request another in 3 months. It is not painful when given. I consider it helpful.

I just had Botox for multiple sclerosis spasticity in my left leg 5 days ago and so far I have not felt anything new. My legs are still the same. My left side is weaker but I guess this is a side effect from of it. I have to wait at least 2 weeks to see any change, said my doctor. Let's hope it works.
