BTW, I get Botox in my feet and toes b/c of my spasticity, i.e. my toes want to 'clench' into a toe-fist, as it were. Makes it difficult to get shoes on and off. The spasticity can also make it even more difficult to walk more than a short distance. Luckily, I have an amazing wife and daughters who never complain (out loud!) about 'slow poke'. Lastly, it is difficult to say with certainty that Botox has actually helped me since I have no experience with a 'no Botox control sample'! Yes, I am a Biochemist/Microbiologist nerd!

I think help-have been receiving BOTOX injections for some time now. I believe they have helped with my spasticity. I have shots in calves to help me stop kicking legs and tremors in feet. I'm in a power chair so weakness in walking not a problem as some mention. I feel it's worth it as help and the pains in ankles and Charlie horses stopping

My Physical therapist raved about botox for spasticity but my MS doctor said the weakness that would s result would probably be unwise in my case
Be wary ...muscle relaxers have made my family members mean
