Botox Injections For Blepharospasm - My Opinions
#1
Botox Injections For Blepharospasm / Hemifacial Spasms - My Opinions



As a matter of fact, I have received 3 therapy sessions of Botox injections from a neurosurgeon for my chronic medication-induced involuntary uncontrollable non-stop rapid eyelid-twtiching / eye-blinking at a very exorbitant cost of U.S 5000 dollars each from an expensive private medical centre located in my home country (one of the less-developed ones in Asia) before I have actually got it gradually and totally cured once and for all in the end through acupuncture treatment (an alternative-instrument-aided self-administered one - please refer to the weblinks below for further information).


The remark below is a quotation from someone else :

'Long-term therapy with botulinum toxin is sometimes associated with therapy failure following repeated injections of the neurotoxin, presumably due to specific antibody production.'


My reply :

Well, the general medical rule is such that human body would tend to get used / immunized to whatever similar medications fed to it over the long-term in such a way that when such immunization actually takes place, the recipients of such medications would then not be able to respond in the 'effectively intended' way to acquire the desired medical effects from such medications. So, I think that's the reason why Botox would fail in the case you have described.


Well, to be really frank with you, I have never considered Botox injections to be a permanently conclusive and totally practical cure for such chronic non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking and other Hemifacial Spasms disorders.


In regard of Botox injections for eyelid twitching problem / Hemifacial Spasms, such toxin-based medication would just serve to sort of 'half-paralyse' the eyelid / facial muscles to reduce such twitchings / tics without being able to do anything curative to the problematic nerves around the non-stop twitching eyelid / facial muscles that cause such muscle-twitchings / tics problems. Besides, each Botox injection would work for just 3-6 months and after that one would very probably need to get another injection one after another indefinitely in regard of such a treatment to continue to get the similar muscle-paralysing healing effects.


Next, in regard of the Botox injections applied onto the facial muscles, one would very likely develop such undesired side effects as paralysed facial muscles, droopy eyelids (in certain cases) etc when one gets such Botox injections over the long-term after quite a number of years.


Subsequently, even though newer and newer versions of Botox injections composed possibly with different combinations of medical contents would tend to be invented from time to time nowadays to overcome such 'immunization effects' of the ones of the older versions received regularly by its regular users, I am nevertheless in the opinion that such a group of persons are actually running a risk of suffering eventually from the potentially unknown side effects of such different versions of Botox medications, which can be really disastrous when the side effects of such medications just 'manifest all of a sudden'.


As to the acupuncture treatment administered onto the "He Gu" acupuncture point (the one located on one's wrist and is effective in treating the facial nerves especially the eyelids - please refer to the diagram added in related posts made in the weblinks below), the underlying mechanism, as explained to me by the acupuncturist dealing with my eyelid twitching sickness was such that it would gradually purge the dopamine-disturbing / other neurotransmitters chemical-disrupting toxins that cause all such eyelid / facial twitchings, tics and spasms out of one's body, and hence actually help restore the bodily chemical balances to enable a person to get totally cured once and for all in the end. Next, that's exactly the healing and curative benefits that I had acquired and subsequently the ones having the similar eyelid-twitching problems in my real life and to whom I recommended such alternative instrument-aided self-administered acupuncture method (which involves the use of a blunt-pointed object such a normal writing pen which is out-of-ink etc and pressing using just mild force onto the very surface of that acupuncture point, and hence is safe-and-convenient-to-apply considering every single aspect of the methodology) had also get cured and carried on living a normal life getting back everything they lost previously due to such debilitating sickness especially their jobs to continue earning a living to survive on and provide a decent life for their families.


All in all, my opinion is such that it's always better to solve any problems once and for all by dealing directly with their root causes rather than through indefinitely indirect methods of 'interceptions' that will be potentially hazardous over the long-term for the ones suffering from them.

Next, apart from finding the 2 shocking headlines of :



"Group seeks Botox warning following 16 deaths"


"Wrinkle drug reports showed toxin spread inside body after injection"




the main contents of this report have just "gone missing" with the explanation :



" The page you are seeking has expired and is no longer available at msnbc.com."



Well, apparently the information carried by that news / report was "profitably undesirable / unfavourable / damaging" to the popular images of the Botox medications, and hence, they are deleted and suppressed by the authorities.



Now, let's consider the following naked truth : -



"Governmental monopoly", or rather tenacious grips on the health care industries



So, can anyone just tell me that how can such potentially deadly Botox medications and other possibly the other hazardous drugs be continually and unimpededly approved by the government-run Food And Drugs Administration (FDA), and then be widespreadly and pervasisvely promoted and marketed to the general public, and at the same time, with the actual medical facts of the deadly contents of such medications to be intentionally and insidiously withhheld from their buyers and consumers ?




And has the government been playing fair by doing this way ?




And the realistic goals of money-seeking and profit-maximisation at the expense of the health cares and human lives of the users of such deadly products / medications would actually make such a "policies" fully justified and warranted" ?

"Group seeks Botox warning following 16 deaths" - Follow-up :



Now, let's consider the following excerpts about Botox medications :



"The consumer group Public Citizen says from 1997 to 2006 16 people died from Botox injections, four of them under the age of 18. "




"The report also found that 658 patients suffered adverse effects from Botox and 87 of them had to be hospitalized.

Levine says cosmetic Botox is relatively safe if you have a good doctor, but says as the use of Botulin toxin increases so does the risk for complications.

The FDA would not comment on the report. "

Further Information On Fatalities of Botox Medications / Injections



Please consider the following excerpts about the fatalities of Botox Medications / Injections :


"Aspiration Pneumonia a Botox Reaction:


Aspiration pneumonia is a serious infection of the lungs that’s the result of inhaling foreign materials, which the lung is unable to expel easily. When the lungs are unable to remove a substance, fluid builds up in the lungs and an infection results. Apparently, this condition is linked to Botox injections because minute particles of the substance in Botox is finding its way into patients’ lungs.


^ Back To Top


Partial Paralysis from Botox Injections:


The second side effect that’s allegedly linked to Botox injections is partial paralysis. Although the link has yet to be definitively proven in a full laboratory study, it’s alleged by some that when the Botox injection leaks into such areas as the esophagus, it can lead to partial paralysis, and this partial paralysis is as of now of indefinite duration.


^ Back To Top

Botox Death Reported:


Of the 180 reports tracked by Public Citizen, 16 people died, and four were under the age of 18. Obviously, there is no need to describe this condition, but if you are experiencing muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech or droopy eyelids, seek immediate medical attention.

Your Next Step if Injured from Botox:


As you see, Botox injections are not completely safe, at least according to Public Citizen and the 87 people who were hospitalized from the 180 who were studied. If you have been injured as a result of a Botox treatment, contact a defective products attorney immediately to schedule an initial consultation. "

Botox Casualties And Viable Legal Actions




Please consider the following excerpts :



FDA: Botox linked to kids’ deaths
Children with cerebal palsy treated with anti-wrinkle drug for limb spasms




WASHINGTON - The popular anti-wrinkle drug Botox and a competitor have been linked to dangerous botulism symptoms in some users, cases so bad that a few children have died, the government warned Friday.


The Food and Drug Administration's warning includes both Botox, a wrinkle-specific version called Botox Cosmetic, and its competitor, Myobloc, drugs that all use botulinum toxin to block nerve impulses, causing them to relax.


In rare cases, the toxin can spread beyond the injection site to other parts of the body, paralyzing or weakening the muscles used for breathing and swallowing, a potentially fatal side effect, the FDA said.





FDA Warns of Children's Deaths Linked to Botox
Anti-wrinkle drug and competitor Myobloc under agency safety review

Why Botox Didn't Work ?



Well, human bodies would tend to get immune to any medications especially the ones fed to them repeatedly from time to time, including Botox , and that's most probably the very reason why it didn't work.



Anyway, Botox injections are actually composed mainly of Botulinum toxin that are in fact medical derivatives from Clostridium botulinum bacterium (which causes botulism) that have been intentionally abused before for the purpose of chemical warfare owing to its intense toxicity.



Hence, please consider the excerpts below :



"Botulinum toxin is among the most poisonous substances known. The toxin, which can be ingested or inhaled, and which disrupts transmission of nerve impulses to muscles, is naturally produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Certain strains of C. baratii and C. butyricum can also be capable of producing the toxin.



Botulinum toxin has become well known in recent years for two reasons. First, the toxin has become a weapon in the arsenal of terrorists. Contamination of food is one route for infection with the toxin. The toxin can also be released into the air, which was attempted on at least three occasions between 1990 and 1995 by the Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo. The government of Iraq admitted to United Nations inspectors following the 1991 Persian Gulf War that tens of thousands of liters of botulism toxin had been produced and loaded into weapons. The toxin was the most numerous of all the biological weapons then developed by Iraq.



Paradoxically, the other reason for the toxin's fame is the use of the toxin as a cosmetic enhancement (i.e., "botox")."

quoted from :

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.answers.com/topic/botox">http://www.answers.com/topic/botox</a><!-- m -->



So, why endangering one's life with such dangerous toxins for the mere purpose of preserving one's beauty and juvenility temporarily ?

Various Possible Medical Causes of Unusual Eyelid Twitching / Eye Blinking - Brief Explanations



Well, in terms of medical explanations, under usual and non-congenital circumstances, the annoying eyelid twitching / eye blinking would normally be caused by the not so serious factors as follows : -



# Stress
# Tiredness
# Eyestrain
# Caffeine
# Alcohol
# Dry eyes
# Nutritional imbalances
# Allergies


Next, under such situations, such annoying symptoms would usually come and go within a very short period of time and certainly the conditions would get better and better from time to time especially when certain related treatments are sought and administered to deal with the symptom.


However, under rare circumstances when the eye twitch symptom just get progressively and chronically and seriously unmitigated from bad to worse as well as seem to last permanently even when all sorts of related treatments are adminstered upon such illness to deal with it, such non-stop eye twitching symptom may then simply just manifest as one of the serious neuromuscular / neurological symptoms of :


# Tardive Dyskinesia (rapid involuntary uncontrollable eye blinking / eye twitching), which in most cases are caused by the neuromuscular / neurological side effects of certain powerful mind-altering medications and other neurological complications. Whilst the underlying mechanism of such a disease is such that the normal functionings of the neurotransmitters chemical dopamine which co-ordinates the miscellaneous human body movements in this case are disturbed, antagonized and disrupted in this case resulting in one's loss of control of human body movements, and in this case, one's eye / eyelids organ.


In such a connection, in terms of the landmark & prominent Tardive Dyskinesia symptom of abnormally rapid eyelid twitching / eye blinking as described and mentioned above, since the eyelids' organ-movements-related neurotransmitters chemicals - dopamine produced by the nerve cells / neurons are totally transparent while the eye nerves / brain cells remain undamaged, the MRI / CT-scannings would thus not be able to show and detect anything abnormal and unusual at all for their Blepharospasm / chronic eye blinking / eyelid twitching disorders, and then almost in all cases, their Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twithcing / eye blinking disorders would then be labelled "accordingly" as "undiagnosable" / "unexplainable" by the related mainstream medical personnel, and then they are suggested to get surgery / perpetually continual Botox injections to deal with such chronic neuromuscular and visually-incapacitating disorders.


All in all, for the undiagnosed medical phenomenon and scenario described above, well, regardless of how advanced the mainstream medical sciences are nowadays, their are still lots of medical and pathological conditions that remain unexplained and are pending to be deeply examined and explored in the sense that anything that cannot be examined / observed / explained to date simply do not mean that they do not exist at all.

Chronic Rapid (Non-brain-damage-induced)Eyelid-twitching / Eye-blinking - Brief Medical Explanations



In terms of chronic rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, it's actually called Blepharospasm which is a symptom of involuntary and uncontrollable movements in the muscles around a person's eyes which in turn make them appear like 'blinking non-stop' to other people.



In certain cases, this may be caused by myasthenia (muscular weakness) in the eyes organ as a result of stresses, overstraining of the eyes, lacks of sleeps, the serious lacks of certain nutrients / minerals to support the normal functionings / movements of your eyelid
muscles etc.



Next, in the case whereby no stress, any kinds of viral / parasital / bacteria infections, overstraining of the eyes etc are involved whilst the eyelids and the entire organs just look superficially normal and ok, and at the same time, the eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking just get 'unexplainedly' from bad to worse from time to time, such medical scenarios could actually be caused by other neuromuscular disorders which are much more complicated.



And in terms of such neuromuscular disorders, they may arise as a neurological / Tardive Dyskinesia side effect of certain medications, especially the powerful mind-altering tranquilizers of antipsychotics / neuroleptics, particularly when such medications are over-relied on to the point of sheer abuse.



In such a connection, please consider the following excerpts : -



"Chlorpromazine ( a type of antipsychotic / neuroleptic meant for mental disorders) side effects :

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop taking chlorpromazine and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:


twitching or uncontrollable movements of your eyes, lips, tongue, face, arms, or legs - movements disorders symptoms of Tardive Dyskinesia;"

Follow Up : Tardive Dyskinesia (Chronic Rapid Eyelid-twitching /Eye-blinking Is One of The Common Symptoms)




Please consider the following excerpts about Tardive Dyskinesia ( of which one of the most common symptoms is purposeless uncontrollable rapid eye-blinking / eyelid-twitching)



"Tardive dyskinesia is a variety of dyskinesia (involuntary, repetitive movements) manifesting as a side effect of long-term or high-dose use of dopamine antagonists, usually antipsychotics. Other dopamine antagonists that can cause tardive dyskinesia are drugs for gastrointestinal disorders (e.g. metoclopramide) and neurological disorders. While newer atypical antipsychotics such as olanzapine and risperidone appear to have less dystonic effects, only clozapine has been shown to have a lower risk of tardive dyskinesia than older antipsychotics"




"Tardive dyskinesia is characterized by repetitive, involuntary, purposeless movements.
Features of the disorder may include grimacing, tongue protrusion, lip
smacking, puckering and pursing of the lips, and rapid eye blinking. Rapid movements of the extremities may also occur. Impaired movements of the fingers may also appear. For comparison, patients with Parkinson's disease have difficulty moving, while patients with tardive dyskinesia have difficulty not moving."



quoted from :


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardive_dyskinesia



Please take note that for such chronic rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking caused by neurological / neuromuscular / Tardive Dyskinesia side effects of medications, the MRI and other related medical imaging examinations would not show anything abnormal / problematic at all given that bodily chemical imbalances (interferrences with the synaptic activities of the neurons / neurotransmitters chemicals such as dopamine etc by the related nerve-disturbing medications) cannot be conclusively and definitely observed and diagnosed by such MRI or other related medical imaging examinations at all.



In short, for the medical scenario of chronic rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking syptom caused by medicational nerve-disturbing side effects of Tardive Dyskinesia, the MRI and other related medical imaging examinations would not be able to reveal, observe and diagnose anything at all.

Whilst as a matter of fact, there are actually certain Tardive Dyskinesia-related medications such as metoclopramide (Reglan), prochlorperazine (Compazine) - being medications for gastrointestinal problems, promethazine (Phenergan) - being medications for cough and so on that are often prescribed to children nowadays which may also have disastrous and very serious nerve-damaging side effect of muscle deformity that would affect the rest of their lives. Besides, given the very fact that the immune system of small children / kids are far less developed compared to grown adults, such small children / kids are thus far more vulnerable and susceptible to the strong and powerful neurological / neuromuscular side effects of such potentially nerve-disrupting medications compared to the grown adults. Therefore, extreme and well-informed precautions and measures should be vigorously taken when it comes to safeguarding the medical cares, welfares and well-beings of the tender-aged and underage children / kids so as to conscientiously and effectively protect them from any unwanted and unexpected harms of any medications with harmful side effects.
