So…I get a feeling of hope and some comfort from reading everyone’s comments and symptoms. But I don’t know if it is my elongated styloid process or not, because my symptoms are different I think.
Talking a lot makes me feel off, and there is tightness under my jaw
throat feels raw sometimes
tingles or maybe its a tickle in my throat
ears feel full almost always
muscles hurt around neck
sometimes feel like I am grasping for air slightly
when my neck is real irritated my hands tingle to
get dry mouth really bad
will get heart palpitations, I think some times
or I will get like a hot flash
sometimes I feel like i got a lump in my throat, kinda
feels like someone is squeezing my neck below my jaw line some
I also get tight around my chest like a band and get stiff, sometimes
when I look down or up or left to right for long periods of time it hurts
dull pain too
I had in the past visual problems, sometimes not I will get spots
Its a lot of things and its hard to tell all of them, plus i don’t like complaining either so then I don’t say things.
I take Ibuprofen everyday, to try and ease it some which it doesn’t help but for my teeth pain.
I am going to my ENT on thursday, and I have my pano from my dentist.
My dentist seems to think its the TMJ (My teeth are very crooked but I havent had issues like this my entire life) and he thinks i am grinding and clenching my teeth all day, but I know I am not. But I went to a different dentist who pointed out my elongated styloid process, in the pano. My dentist said he saw that and is not convinced, and thinks I am a google warrior. I am only going to him still because of my crowns because I am having problems with them, because they are hitting my teeth too hard, and I did not have root canals. I know I have TMJ, and my teeth are crooked and all that, and now I am getting braces to prove my dentist wrong.
but this is not that kind of pain, I am pretty sure its my styloid process.
I also had a tonsillectomy at 24 or 25. It is hard to stay positive and all that when I have authoritarian people (Dentist) saying its porbably not that. And I am terrified my ENT will do the same. What Can I say and do to atleast convince the ENT to look and see if my elongated Styloid process is rubbing against nerves and muscles? (This is also a pano from January this year)
