Has Anyone Ever Had Botox For Muscle Pain And Tightness. Was It Really Painful

at first? When did it start to work, if ever?

I haven't either. I see an amazing rheumatologist at Vanderbilt and she really stays on top of my problems and she hasn't mentioned it. Let us know how it goes.

I listed as many as I could @Passingthrough, but could not list them all. I take a lot of meds for anxiety, depression and bowel problems, as well as a low dose of gabapentin and low dose naltrexone for pain. Because I cannot tolerate higher doses the pain meds only help so much. I have been trying a lot of options because I have such a hard time with meds for pain especially, so I am trying alternatives. I have to part pay for them, but it's worth knowing if ithey will help.

I also have a great pain doctor who is really up on the newest treatments and believes in a multifaceted approach to treating FM/ME, as well as educating his patients to help themselves. I thank heavens that I am one of his patients

The Botox is continuing to work just over two weeks in. I was also on amytriptyline for sleep (just 25 mg started a week ago) and I had to stop using it (due to side effects) so I am having more neck and body pain, although it's
Still an improvement especially on my
Lower back and hips. My neck is pretty sore and I have a headache today, a lot like yesterday

Thank you @A MyFibroTeam Member

We can get therapeutic Botox here, but it is way expensive! I am luckily covered for it and decided to try it as I get trigger shots all the time and was hoping the Botox would last
Longer. It's day 5 or 6 and my back and neck feel better today after a gentle massage yesterday.
