The ENT who diagnosed me here in Colorado was hesitant because 1) Eagle Syndrome ‘is so rare’ and 2) my styloids weren’t extremely elongated just 3.5 and 3.3 whereas he thought if they were, for example, 4.5 he could be really sure.
it showed up on scans, the radiologist noted it could be He can feel it with his fingers at the back of my mouth so he took that more seriously too.
When he looked at my temporal bone scan to diagnose, he had to pull out his phone and look at Wikipedia to see how to diagnose it. Yeah.
He knows what surgery to do, into my neck, cut the styloid down but guys I feel like I should talk to someone who really KNOWS about Eagle Syndrome, not someone who had to look it up on Wikipedia. If someone’s going to slice into my neck I’d like an experienced doctor.
Does anyone know a doctor in Colorado who’s familiar with Eagle’s Syndrome and has done the surgery?
