Common Questions and Answers about Botox lip injections muscles

Avatar f tn I had Juvederm ultra plus injected into my top lip, I have previously had Restylane injections. I felt some lumps after wards, so I agressively massaged my lip to prevent bumps. Is it possible that I massaged too much and the Juvederm migrated outside my top lip? If so, I'm scared my top lip won't have the defintion of a pout, it will just look like a blob? Is this a crazy assumption? Also, I I had Dysport injected into two areas on my forehead, and some units around my eyes.
1218873 tn?1300094816 I was hoping the consultant had arranged for me to see the eye specailist, we talked about this at the last appointment and felt it was a way forward to seek his opinion on botox injections to try and relax the muscle around the eye. But he hadn't done this because my neuro had arranged for me to see a rehabilation Dr. And this is the sort of thing there dept. does. So the consultant wanted to speak to the rehab Dr so he didn't step on anyone toes.
Avatar n tn Otherwise, hemifacial spasm does not always need to be treated but if it is bothersome to the patient, injections of botox into some of the muscles can stop the twitching temporarily. Avoidance of stress, fatigue, bright lights can sometimes reduce twitching triggers.
53833 tn?1235000229 Sometimes it can come on without any known cause while some physicians believe that it can be a result of remote trauma. These can usually be treated with muscle relaxants and botox injections. Start with a pediatric neurologist so he can get a formal examination to make sure everything is ok neurologically.

Avatar n tn A new means of treating this condition is by injections of BOTOX in to the muscles around the eye, which causes them to relax and prevents this constant twitching. I would advise you to see a neurologist to have this annoying problem evaluated, it is certainly worth having it sorted out and help is available.

Avatar n tn In the last few years, we've seen (both in our clinic and the medical literature) imporvement of both spasticity and pain with botox injections. If you've tried everything in terms of meds, this may be the way to go. Good luck.

748543 tn?1463449675 's , levators, left and right were all very tight as were other upper back and neck muscles. After a few days I noticed my bite was going bad as my right masseter was spasming and unstable. I was in a lot of pain with headaches, right ear pain and all of the muscular dysfunction. I was using a lot of Advil. I thought I was done with TMD as of 2004! As time has gone on with physical therapy in addition to massage therapy my symptoms have settled down to the following- 1).
Avatar n tn I would like help dealing with her spasticity issues. They are saying she is not a candidate for botox injections. Caregiver 222, I believe, has mentioned being able to help a 101 year old. I am interested in doing whatever I can to help my mother. Are there other modalities for addressing the spasticity or are contractures inevitable? I have also read about scalp acupuncture being very helpful if performed by properly trained practitioners.
Avatar n tn I am plagued with this same condition. I had a reaction to a drug in the summer of 2008. After the symptoms of my reaction cleared, I was left with bi-lateral pain in my hands and feet and a persistent cough. I too have been in and out of the allergist, pulmonologist, 2 neurologists, several primary care and 2 ENTs. I have took tests and many drugs including, amitriptyline and lyrica. I'm currently taking lyrica...
748543 tn?1463449675 is an extension of general Postural Consideration. In other words it is a part of a complete system of interrelated bones, muscles and joints that ultimately relate to the Trigeminal System. Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture?

I, as most responsible medical professionals, believe in using the most conservative successful form of treatment.
Avatar n tn You will likely be helped with a preventative medication like Elavil taken once daily. You may also need botox and/or kenalog/lidocaine injections, and/or a trial on indocin/steroid taper. I would also suggest a good ear exam including audiologic testing. An EEG (brain wave test) may also be helpful, since meningiomas can give rise to seizures (although this is less likely). I hope this has been helpful.
Avatar n tn at Lipodissolve in Chesterfield Valley (MO) is the best. Sara also gets the injections - she said that she has had everyone there give her the injections - and she didn't notice any difference. I sure did. My 3rd treatment with someone different was so painful and the swelling was really bad. I also think she injected into one of the past lumps that had not dissolved totally.
Avatar n tn I drink 1-2 cups of coffee per day. I was told steroid or Botox injections (yes, Botox) are a possibility if the twitching continues, but I will seek other options first - massage, chiropractic care, and getting a better handle on the stressors. Maybe yoga?? No needles in my head, please!
Avatar n tn He can move his left thumb a bit, and very gently squeeze my hand, and he can pull his arm back towards his body when it is moved away from his body. His PT said that the flexor tone (muscles which pull the arm towards the core of his body, curl his fingers and wrist) come back before the extensor tone does (muscles that extend the fingers, and move the arm away from the body.
Avatar n tn My husband ran into the bathroom and got a hot wash cloth and placed it on my neck to try and relax the muscles, which seemed to help, but I can still feel that something is not right in there. When I couldn't get it back in, it seemed to get worse, the more I paniced, and it felt like something was tilting backwards and trying to puncture a hole into my throat. I haven't been able to get a full yawn since then, some due to it hurting, and some probably due to fear of it getting stuck again.
363682 tn?1299492962 Because, the Botox Injections can wear off after 3 months. If it has been 3 months since your last Botox Injections, you may need to go back to your neurologist for another round of injections. If it's just time for more Botox, then you might be able to have a little bit of wine again. If not, then I am sorry and I understand how you feel about this.
Avatar n tn 9 hours a day (with just a 30-min. lunch break). Have had sciatica and some steroid injections in the sacroiliac joint for inflammation, but it's been about 8 months since my last injection (the 4th in about 5 years). Reading here, I see a lot of mentions of possible nerve relationship to hip or sciatic nerve... I'm hoping it stops soon!
Avatar n tn or trigger points on my upper back are gone. This ordeal involved my teeth, sinuses, ears, neck muscles and the muscles of my upper back. Stress also plays a HUGE part in this syndrome. A regular doctor doesn't put all this together like a therapist does. I still have stiff, painful muscles on the sides of my neck. The fullness and ringing in my ears is getting much better.
496771 tn?1209698358 9 days into the latest anti-biotic treatment I started feeling Flu-like with a constant headache, aching muscles, fatigue, running a 100 degree temp., and my legs both felt like they had been beat. I had suffered pinched nerves in the past few years and thought I had hurt my back again and that I had caught the Flu, also.
Avatar f tn I have tried most of the prophylactic drugs out there and I get Botox every 3 months in my scalp and neck (works well but expensive). I tried topamax for 2 weeks and had headaches every day. I was also on wellbutrin, lyrica and lamictal for migraines. I am off all of the meds now so I decided to try topamax again. (The Botox works well but I still have a few migraines) I would be willing to actually shave my head if the topamax works.
Avatar n tn I have been to many doctors and of course the dont know what it is, I have done many studies and have realized it is anxiets, and what is happening in most cases is that the anxiety is causing the muscles in your forehead and muscles around your ear and inner ear to tense up giving you the sinus pressure and the dizzyness and equilibrium problems, try seeing a doctor for anxiety it might work, its been working for me.
