Botox injections into muscles is suppose to make them unable to contract. I don't think this is a normal response to the injections. I would consult an orthopaedist or other spine specialist and have this problem properly diagnosed if you haven't already.
Google Botulism symptoms. This is what you have. Botulism poisoning. There is a summation effect so the last injection may have much more dire side effects than the first ones. Most doctors will dismiss a diagnosis of botulism because they are not trained to recognize it and they operate under the misguided assumption Botox cannot cause botulism which is absolutely false. Allergan has lost two major law suits for paralyzing, debilitating and even killing people who used their product, Botox.
