I have difficult swallowing, choking sensation, and cough. do you think botox which was injected in my neck 3 months ago caused this?

No.: Good day, thank you for your question! The quick answer is most likely not if it was injected properly. Also Botox starts to fade in its effect after 3-4 months. All the Best! Dr. Tony Perkins.
