BOTOX!!


Yeah, I still haven't tried it for head tremor yet. But I did talk to a neurologist at Emory, and she had she can give me some kind of LEFTOVER botox(I forgot what it was called in a professional term). What's worse, she said since she didn't see any signs of neurosis, it's going to cost over a grand. I knew it would be much more expensive because my insurance wouldn't cover it, but isn't it still too much? Plus, she said that leftover was about to be dumped. How the heck do I know if it's much weaker than normal botox?
Do you think a plastic surgeon will be more willing to give me a shot?

Re: BOTOX!!


botox can only be temporary and wouldnt help in figuring out what the cause of the tremor is
have you tried a course of a beta blocker such as inderal?

Re: BOTOX!!


w00t, I got a reply!

Well, it's my last resort(besides oriental medicine) and I'm gonna try it if there is one doctor who would agree.

As for beta blockers, no I haven't. My psychiatrist said I need to have higher bp for her to prescribe.
