I had a botox injection for piriformis syndrome 15 days ago and no result yet. More intense pain than usual. How long before I give up hope?

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
