On Monday, I finally received Botox injections in my neck (my right sterncleidomastoid to be exact) after waiting for five months and experiencing chronic pain and muscle spasms in that area for almost 4 years.
After only 3 days I am starting to feel the effects, and I am cautiously optimistic.
To sum it up:
My neck muscles feel looser.
I feel 80% percent less neck pain in an area that has been unaffected by all other methods of pain management.
I now have hope that I'll be able to move my neck normally again.
Maybe, just maybe with the end of the neck muscle spasms, I'll be able to drive again!...and work, and run....and the list goes on!
Before I delve into details about the procedure, a little botox background:
