Performed Botox injections into muscles and tendons of neck. I have chronic neck pain and questionable dystonia. Approximately 36 hours after Botox I could not bend over, could not not lower my head, could not drive. Dizzy and lightheaded. Pain was off the chart. Office never called for follow-up. I had to call them and asked Doctor why I wasn't told about this. He claims in almost 30 years I am only patient this has happened to. He could not explain why and said good luck.
