Which botulinum toxin is this?

Could my botulinum toxin A/B injection for migraine treatment be what's making me feel more fatigued, drowsy, sick etc. as the years go by?

I get 145 units every 60 days. It's been over 2 years now, and the migraines have goten better. However I have gotten severely worse on the sleepiness/fatigue and other ill symptoms.

The fatigue is so bad now, I'm being tested for narcolepcy.

Just wondering... [confused]

did some research..to try and answer my question.

7 forms of botulinum toxin have been isolated, and they are A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. (to make music in our lives?) [bonk]

Each one has different properties and actions. No two are alike. Of these subtypes, botulinum toxin type-A and type-B are commercially available.

both type-A and type-B block the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, but they do so by breaking up different proteins within the nerve cell. (Sounds just like the Lyme Spirchete action)

"Botulinum toxin is a complex protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum."

I think this botox bacteria creates spores instead of Spirchete's. But I have no clue obviously!

Am I wrong, do they both create Spirchete or does it not matter because both go after the your acetylcholine?

Less complex scientific info needed!

Botulism can turn into spores, but that is usually outside the body to surive drought, or high temperatures. Hiker
