botox injection in butt?

I've had 2 epidurals with no relief, and PT caused more pain, I have really bad leg pain, cramps, weakness, tingling and numbness. the PA suggested a botox injection in my butt to help with leg pain. anyone heard of this or tried it? he also gave me a surgeon's name to talk to as well. so if you heard of botox injection..please let me know

Re: botox injection in butt?

It is something new that the PMs are doing. If you look it up, it is poison so I would make sure that I got someone who really knew what he was doing. It is the same thing that vain people are getting for face lifts.

I hope that it works for you. If it does, let us know. I was afraid to try it.

Re: botox injection in butt?

Strangely enough I have heard of botox for nerve pain, but have not had it. A neuro/migrain specialist I was seeing for the migraines which increased with my back problems, suggested I might consider an injection of botox when I was having bad sciatic pain. Unfortunately, things got worse quickly and I had to have surgery, so cannot tell you more about botox.

Let us know how it works for you if you have the injections.

I was thinking, since they use it for face lifts, it might also give one the added benefit of a butt lift

Re: botox injection in butt?

Well, my first pm gave me botox injections in the left buttock to try and quiet the pain. I was NOT having spasms though. It did nothing for me, but Ihave heard it helps when you have spasms. Good luck...and let us know if you get relief.
