I had my intra oral surgery on August 4th on my right styloid. The doctor was able to get most of it.
Since then I am having pain in the back of my throat and roof of my mouth. When I turn my head I can feel something poking the roof/ side of my mouth on both sides. When I yawn it is really bad also. I also feel like sometimes it is pressing on my larynx or somewhere near where breathing is. I’m sure a lot of it is anxiety but it literally feels like the pressure on my throat is making my airway smaller.
Ibuprofen seems to help a bit or I just wait it out and it gets better. I’m a teaching and I use my voice all day long and it’s getting hard to do my job.
I know I do have calcified stylohyoid ligaments. Could this be what’s poking me?
I am literally at my wits end. My husband is having major knee surgery in a week and will need 6 weeks to recover. I will be taking care of my son and teaching all day all alone. I don’t have time for this!
I left a message with my surgeon but last time he said he didn’t know what the clicking and pain is.
What other type of doctor could I contact for help?
Any other treatments I can try?
Thanks for listening!
