I received Botox 2 1/2 years ago for cosmetic purposes. I got horribly sick soon after (and still am trying to recover). My symptoms started with nausea, hazy vision and fatigue. It continued on in later weeks with weakness in limbs, anxiety, meibomian gland dysfunction, dry eyes and mouth, headaches. I am still struggling daily with many of these botulism symptoms after more than 2 1/2 years. The pain in my eyes is unrelenting!

I have heat rash on my arm since the last two days, and has been relieved by swimming in a pool. Wonderful! The cool water was the answer.

I had a rash, fatigue, double vision, swelling of the face. This was caused from Dysport injection.
