I was diagnosed with ES and planning to have Dr Hackman remove the styloid ligaments on both sides.
I have read and gained great advice with regards to the procedure and surgeon via this blog.
What that research has also highlighted is that my symptoms appear to be different to the majority of symptoms described on here, so I am questioning whether or not the surgery will indeed address my main issues. I wanted to see if anyone else has these same symptoms, and if the surgery did improve their condition significantly:
- Base of skull pain
- Back of neck pain
- Temple and forehead headaches
- Shoulder and arm aches and cracking
- Unable to look up without triggering pain
I do not have symptoms related to throat, swallowing, tongue or ears ringing.
Thanks so much for anyone who takes the time to read and respond to this post.
