I am having a hard time navigating this site, but I finally found a way I hope. I am having a hard time with spasms in the neck, my neck is twisting and contorting my face and it hurts. I have a hard time when this happens during sleep. I contacted my PCP about botox shots to stop the spasms and the doctor refused said him and the neurologist cant see a need for botox for spasms. The HMO I have you cant sue for treatment you have to arbitrate so I am out of luck. They are good if you come in by ambulance and have good treatment. If you do not need the emergency room you are out of luck. I am just disgusted to tell you the truth. Jerry
