Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this problem
It sounds like you want to know if your symptoms are likely from the botox injection, is that correct?
Are you there
The answer to your question is yes, they may be from the botox injection, to determine if this is indeed from botox, then I would recommend allergy testing WITH a small dose of the botox injection, this can be done by an allergist
Are you still there?
I have to exit the chat , please respond and I will check back later
I am here. :)
Are you back?
Are you able to see my replies?
Hi Dr. Brims. Thank you for your reply. I checked yesterday via phone with my allergist's nurse. My allergist (the 3rd I have seen this year) is an allergy/internal medicine specialist with the Medical Univ. of S.C. Specialty Clinics (the best in Columbia) and I was told by his nurse that he could not test me with a small dose of BOTOX. However, I will be going to his office next Monday, Wednesday and Thursday for 'patch testing.' Is there anything I can tell him (or an internet link) that might educate him about how to test me for BOTOX allergy? I just don't think he is familiar with how to test for BOTOX allergy. Please advise. Also, I would rather speak by phone if possible. This 'chat' is cumbersome and slow. My ph number is XXXXX I have my phone with me at all times. Please consider calling me. Also, can you please advise me of a law firm who specializes in Botox lawsuits? Sincerely, Christine
