I have recently started working in a job that has lots of walking and standing. I have for 15 years had numbness and tingling in my right foot and since I started working that pain is much more frequent and distracting. Are there off label uses for Botox to help with nerve pain in my feet?
Botox has no effect on neuropathic pain or abnormal sensations in the limbs. The effects on migraine pain are indirectly mediated through cranial musculature and not relevant to your pain.
