Dropped eyelids, heavy head after BOTOX injection. Side effect?

Resolved Question:

I had botox injetion in my forehead , frown lines and crowns feet. I did this a week ago and in the first and second day I felt that my head is so heavy as if someone is sitting in my forehead. In day 3 I noticed that my eyelid is started to drop and the case is very severe in one eye to the point that one eye becomes smaller than the other (attached is the picture of my eyes the above picture is after Botox and under it is my wide and beautiful eyes before the botox )Also my eyebrows are frozen now I can't move or left them. I am going to visit the doctor who did this tomorrow but I really need to know does droopy eyelid from botox has a solution like injecting more botox to lift it or time is the only solution for this case.

Thanks for posting your query at
I have gone thorugh your questions in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Bipolar disorder with OCD with agoraphobia with ADHD is definitely too much to handle. Also I am very sorry about the insurance problem, the system is at fault.
Unfortunately Doctor Spring is an online forum and we are not allowed to prescribe you medicines. Further the prescription if at all given by me will not be valid in your country.
If maintaining your illness is so difficult in your country, then it would be advisable to shift to a smaller country for your illness. Suppose you shift to India for your illness, the cost of treatment and the cost of medicines will be very less and you can easily manage your illness.
In case if you have any further doubts about your illness, do let me know.
Kind regards
Dr. Srikanth Reddy MD

How do I transfer to a country like India?

Hello Derek,
I am sorry I won't be able to give you such information through this online forum.
I was just stating the fact that if you shift to a different country, the laws and the insurance systems won't be that stringent, and accessibility to health care will be slightly easier.
I completely emphathize with you, but i won't be able to give such information.
You can always think over it and make a smart decision.
If you have further health related queries, kindly let me know.
All the best,
