I just had botox injections yesterday in my upper back and I already can feel the difference. I developed myfascial pain syndrome about 14 years ago and had a spinal fusion on c-5 / c-6 in 1997.

I've been through trigger point injections, cervical epidurals and wear the durageis 25 mg patch.


My insurance would not cover it but it's worth not having that constant, nagging pain.


Yay!!

:d

Botox
Botulinum toxin a (botox) or botulinum toxin b (myoblock) are excellent drugs to provide temporary relief from myofascial pain. Most patients derive 3-6 months relief from one injection.
