I was given injections of Dysport for wrinkles around my eyes, and my forehead. A few days after the injections I broke out with a horrific case of hives. The hives spread all over my body. It looked like I had leprosy. The hives lasted for a month. Never again will I get Dysport!

I was treated with Botox (botulism neurotoxins) injection for cervical dystonia in November 2013. It did not work. I had problems swallowing/breathing/choking/dry mouth. I weighted 125 lbs height 5ft 2in before treatment and now I weigh 95 lbs. I wonder if I should be concerned that I may have botulism. I was a healthy normal 64 year old woman before I was diagnosed with cervical dystonia. Wonder if weight loss is part of dystonia.

I had a Botox (botulism neurotoxins) injection in my face for cosmetic reasons and since then I have been very tired and my vision is impaired.
