Sorry to hear all this.
Please clarify. You were diagnosed with blepharospasm. What were/are your symptoms, and why were the eye and forehead lifts "unnecessary"?
Is the doctor who diagnosed you different from the doctor who injected you?
What kind of doctor/s? Neurology, ophthalmology, movement disorders?
If you are saying that you never before went for more than 2 days without relief
and that after being injected with botox you had 25 days of relief, that is a HUGE improvement! That sounds very significant!
You could ask your doctor WHY, given your history, he thought you DIDN'T have blepharospasm.
Did he think the relief ought to have lasted for more than 25 days? If so, didn't he talk about adjusting dosages or injection sites?
There can be a lot of trial-and-error involved in figuring out the best injection sites and dosages for YOU.
One suggestion is that you talk to that doctor more about this.
If you don't want to see that same doctor again, get a copy of your medical records (you should do that anyway), be sure you have a record of where the injections were given and what the dosage was.
And find out what the "other drug" was that was mixed with botox the 2nd time.
And then get the diagnosis confirmed, and see an experienced injector, whether it's the doctor who diagnosed you or another one.
Whether you are talking about upstate or NYC, you're going to be able to get to an experienced injector. You haven't said where you live in NY, but I think you're probably very lucky—even if you have to take a bus to get somewhere. There will be plenty of good doctors within reach.
You should make sure you get a proper diagnosis, though.
Do you have insurance, is that a problem?
If you go to the blepharospasm.org page, look for the support groups—one thing you can do is get in touch with the support group contact person in your area.
Also, you can contact the BEBRF (benign essential blepharospasm research foundation) office in Beaumont, TX, and you can get a list if doctors in your area who inject for blepharospasm (though being on the list of NY injectors doesn't constitute a recommendation).
I think that others on this board who are in NY will also make recommendations.
But where are you?
May you have a Refuah Shlema~
