Botox

Botox

I went to my Movement Disorder Doc today and as some of you know I have been complaining about my neck killing me @ times . She touched the back of my neck and immediately said "Yes, your Dystonia has moved to your neck as well"
She wants me to start Botox next month in the neck.

Question is --Has anyone had the Botox in the neck and how painful is it and does it last for a while? I am doing it because this neck pain is just to much at times,...
Thanks in advance!
