Quote from Rachelle49:I have been to numerous doctors including a PPS specialist and haven't had any help. I just had a hip x-ray to rule out arthritis. Currently I am scheduled for botox injections in my back in early 2005. I am hoping they help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I have suffered chronic back pain accompanied by severe leg spasms since 1998. I had a failed back surgery which cause injury to my sciatic nerve. This nerve injury causes my muscle spasms that can not be controlled with massive doses of narcotics. In June 2005, I had Botox
injections directly into the muscles of my lower legs. It took about 2 weeks for me to feel the results. The Botox
has helped tremendously with the spasms. I had releif for approximately 4months. I am now going through difficulties getting the insurance companies to pay for the Botox
Injections. I would like to continue having the injections but am not sure I can continue the costly expense. How did the injections work for you?
