Don't: The Botox did't work this time.Piriformis syndrome is hard to treat-consult the dr and see if they think another round of that treatment or another is wise.

Nteresting: Botox shows results in 5-7 days most of the time. If you don't get resou may have to have Botox repeated. Good luckults in one more week y.

Never give up!: But the Botox does most of what it is going to do within 3-7 days and all it can do within 2 weeks. Might need a bigger dose before you decide it won't help.
