I’m new to posting here, though I have been reading the boards for quite some time.
I was initially diagnosed with possible Eagles Syndrome while living abroad in Thailand. I had been visiting an ENT there with various symptoms like difficulty swallowing, the feeling of something catching in my throat, very painful neck when turning my head, clicking sensation deep in the ear and some ear pain to name a few. After ruling out many other possibilities and many incorrect diagnoses, she finally came back with probably Eagles Syndrome. This diagnosis was approximately 5 years ago now. I sort of left it there and did not pursue treatment or any other options.
To be quite honest, I never considered surgery while living in SE Asia. Over the past 5 years or so, I have grown accustomed to all the not so nice symptoms mentioned above. However, now that I am back to the US permanently and in light of the fact that my symptoms seem to have been getting worse in the past few months, I am back to researching my options and think I may need to address the problem.
I am attaching the original scans I have from 5 years ago and hoping for any feedback at all from those here with more experience. I certainly plan on visiting an ENT here in the US now that I’m back and will get the prices started.
With COVID19 here at the moment, that might be a bit difficult to schedule, but any sort of feedback here would be awesome.
From what I have researched on my own, it seems my scans are certainly positive for Eagles Syndrome, as well as all the symptoms I’m experiencing.
Thanks in advance and I am so happy to have all the wealth of information here from all of you!
