    I was curious if anyone here has ever received Botox? It may have been a contributing if not the contributing factor to my ear problems and dizziness. I started getting fullness and tinnitus 2 weeks after Botox injections in my forehead and crows feet area. But I've received injections 3 times prior to the injections in question. Doctors and nurses say totally unrelated, but we all know how they are. The dizziness/rocking feeling came 2 months into my diagnosis of Meniere's, originally diagnosed with eustachian tube dysfunction and then later as cochlear hydrops. Frankly still not unsure of what I have. Cochlear hydrops hydrops seems most congruent with synptoms. Would love any input. Thank you!

    Hi James,

    Curious about the Botox for the migraine. The Heal Your Headache Guy , Buccholz, doesn't think they have a high success rate, but after failing on two other vestibuler migraine meds was curious about your journey. All of the migraine magazines have ads for the Botox. Do you have vestibular migraine or just regular migraine?

    Did you try other meds before the Botox?

    You may pm/ conversation me, so not to mess up Megan' s thread. Thanks!

    Hi James,

    Thank you for your response. My symptoms started 2-3 weeks after getting botox. I also got it around my crow's feet area. Do you just injections in you head and neck? Would love to get them again honestly because they helped with my headaches as well. All the doctors say no way, totally unrelated.

    Can we please substitute the plural noun "crow's feet" for "happy happy wisdom grooves"? Or simply "wisdom grooves"?
