    Hi Kate

    I had my second round of botox 4 weeks ago (the first lot didn't work).  I now have a really painful jaw.  I suffer from chronic joint pain anyway but it has really flared up and over the last 2 weeks felt generally really unwell.  the fatigue itself can be overwhelming.  I don't know when you had youri njections but I was told that the first couple of weeks you can feel terrible and the first lot don't always work.  Hang in there.  Take care and let me know how you are doing.

      Hi Kate

      I don't know where you live but I have access to a migraine nurse who actually did my botox.  I was also told not to take any other meds whilst on botox because doctors need to know if the botox is working or not, also migraine meds can also believe it or not, cause headaches!

      I think you need to speak to someone, especially as the anxiety can't be helping the situation, (something I am lucky not to have suffered.)  If you live in the uk go to the migraine action website where you can access a migraine nurse on the phone.  Hope this is of some help.  I suggest you speak with who ever administered your botox too.

      Take care.  Claire
