I'm looking for information about the drug commonly referred to as
botox (I forget the full name) and any work done with it recently.
Articles or personal experience would be a tremendous help.
For background information, I'm a 25 year old college graduate, member
of Mensa, who had a bicycle accident at the age of 9. The result of this
was a left subdural hematoma, which was removed, leaving me with a limp.
Approximately 2 years AFTER the accident, I began having difficulty
using my left hand. Now, 14 years later, it's to the point where I have a
great deal of difficulty controlling my left hand, (Think Dr. Strangelove
(g)) Seriously, tho, I had a botox injection nearly 2 years ago, in April
of '93. The result was astonishing! My neurological team videotaped me
both before and after the injection in the hope of getting insurance
companies to fund the procedure. (Mine was funded by a private grant) I
have a different insurance company and hence, different doctors now. My
current insurance company wont pay for the botox, either, deeming it
"experimental". I'm looking for information, aside from the videotapes
and doctors' recommendations to send to my insurance company as well as
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
