Botox As Treatment

Botox As Treatment

Has anyone had Boxtox as part of their treatment? Before going to Cleavland clinic for second opinion my neurologist was giving my 40 injections in my skull every 6 weeks. Maybe it was helping stop the spread of my hemangioma. I am just curious because I have not seen anyone mention it.

I was starting botox to try to stop my chronic migraines the first set which lasted 12 weeks I didn't have a problem with. After they did the 2nd set that's when my seizures started. They started out as pseudo seizures from there I could be doing something and freeze and then they hit gran mal seizures where I can't breathe because my throat seizures and tightens up to the point that my husband or son have to get my throat to release so I can breathe.

Thanks @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member and @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I am not currently getting in the injections but I had them for about 5 months in a row then I switched neurologist and jaf Surgery. I was telling my mom about this site and she suggested I ask because she was curious
I was very ill, couldnt walk or eat certain foods. I wish I knew about this site three years ago.

I vaguely remember hearing of it but not from a neurologist. I agree with Settlers22, I'd do a bit of research since I don't think it's a very popular form of treatment.

I'd google it. I've never heard of such a treatment personally.
