The following are quotes from a woman who was recently experienced botulinum toxin spread past the injection site. She received Dysport for crows feet in October of 2019. One week after her injections she developed heart rate spikes, with a resting heart rate of 184. She had a general feeling of being unwell, combined with tightness in the chest, which at the time, she dismissed. Unfortunately, 2 weeks after her first injections she went for a "touchup" for her forehead and "bunny lines" by her nose. It was exactly one week later that her "horror and hell" with Dysport illness began. It started with severe anxiety and panic, which wouldn't subside. She has currently developed multiple symptoms of toxin spread. April 17, 2020 "Currently, my legs and arms feel like jelly. I have a paralyzed numb feeling. I have to force myself to walk. I feel like my body is switching on and off, I am worried that I am going to die. I have internal shaking, and I can't stop crying because, I'm scared." April 20, 2020 3:29 AM "My symptoms are worse than they have ever been, I am giving into benzos or antidepressants tomorrow when I speak to my GP. I cannot stand this 24/7 debilitating anxiety, and nervousness. I cannot sit still, I have constant severe panic for NO reason, insomnia, and pain in my heart. I can’t calm myself down no matter what I try or what I do. I’ve taken all sorts of natural meds and nothing is helping at all. I cannot look after my child, I cannot look after myself. I have started to have breathing issues, and chest pain. This is a living hell and I pray to God that I find some form of relief with medication because, that is all that’s left for me now. My heart goes out to ALL that are suffering like me. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, (not that I have one anyway). As hard as it is to read quotes like these, we know that people out there need to be aware that this is what is happening to people! Our heart breaks for every single person that is harmed by pointless and temporary line smoothing botulinum injections. Iatrogenic botulism doesn't care if you are treated with Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, or Xeomin. It is upsetting to us that another life has been negatively affected, another life has been messed up. Please, wake up and listen. No amount of temporarily smoothed wrinkles is worth your health! Photo credit: Daria Obymaha


Hi, thanks for stopping by!

My name is Gretch. I spend my free time studying botulinum and working with Iatrogenic Botulism sufferers. I have learned a lot and want to share what I have learned with you!

I have also been lucky to build friendships along the way with amazing people. The Botox Dysport Side Effects Support Group on Facebook is near and dear to my heart. They have been a huge support system and have taught me so much! 

I'm glad that you are here! I hope you found us *before* deciding to inject.  Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!

Let the posts
come to you.
