Mum has PSP. One eye seems worse than the other, she has trouble keeping the eyelid open. 5 days ago went to her specialist neurologist who suggested we give botox a try. Guess what IT WORKS. She is saying its much better. And I can actually see its improved. Now both eyes look more same and she no longer battles to keep the eyelid open. As a carer I totally recommend it to those with PSP it was covered by Medicare, she didn't pay a cent. Normally approx 1K worth apparently. And they don't even use up all the bottle. Maybe 3 small injections around eye , on lid. Doesn't hurt. Mum wants to have it on the other eyelid too now apparently it relaxes, makes the eyelid lazier ( as the illness, brain is telling it to close ). Give it a try !!! xxx Mia.... ( twitter: @anamumm )
