In brief: Flu-like symptoms

It is possible that the symptoms you are experiencing are botox related.
Some patient report flu-like symptoms after injections but these usually subside within one day. I would expect you to make a full recovery. Your clinical scenario described is not a common one, but I have read similar cases before (although none in my own practice). Best to call your injector and ask them what they think.

In brief: Botox side effects

Botox treatment works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause crows feet and frown lines.
Side effects range from dry mouth, pain at injection site, headache, tiredness, neck pain and double or blurred vision, problems swallowing, droopy eyelids. These side effects are usually temporary, but can be frightening at the time. Always get Botox from trained physicians. Call your Doctor
