I have pain behind eyes, earaches, neck pain leading up behind ear. pain deep behind forehead nasal congestion and fatigue. Sinus RX no help and antibiotics worthless. All pain on right side only. Help.
Botox is actually a neurotoxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulism which grows in canned food that has not been sterilised correctly and causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles which results in paralysis. Botox is used to treat: severe spasms in the neck muscles, muscle spasms in upper and lower limbs, severe sweating, certain eye muscle conditions, overactive bladder and incontinence. It is also used to temporarily lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles.
It was accidentally discovered that Botox is an effective treatment of headaches. Botox was injected in the forehead and brow of patients and found to be useful as a preventative measure for headaches.
While it has not been used to treat sinusitis pain talk to your doctor to see if botox is an option for you.
