Hi all. I was wondering if anybody in our community has had reactions to either Botox or muscle relaxers.
I used to be able to take both of them For pelvic pain in the past. About a month ago I had a Botox injection into the sphincter since it seemed to be the center of my anal pain . I had this exact procedure done a couple years ago with great success. However, this time I developed a great deal of muscle tightness Internally in muscles such as coccygeus and puborectalis. I can tell that the Botox is there and working. My physical therapist has been working for weeks to try to normalize the muscle tension.
More recently I started using a muscle relaxer. It significantly reduced pain I have in my feet due to muscle tightness (as expected), however it increased anal pain apparently due to increased muscle tightness. I have to wait until my next appointment with my physical therapist to assess exactly what happened to all the muscles.
Any help would be much appreciated.
