My husband just spent another week in Rehab so they could adjust his meds. The doctor at Rehab said that he would probably bebefit fromm Botox treatments to ease the pain he has in his back and neck. His medical doctor has sent in orders for it but they are not moving very fast on it. He has constant pain! Has any one else used Botox? Pain killers have been used but seem to make things worse, because he does more sitting due to the drowsy effect---thus more pain. A vicious circle..

I can't speak for anything related to PD but several years ago I had a problem with a very stiff neck, which was painful, and a twitch that wouldn't go away. My doctor finally sent me to a neurologist who gave me a botox shot. The stiffness, pain and twitch all went away.
