Hi , First I had a ear ringing on my right ear and then a month later I had pain on my jaw and went to urgent care , the doctor said I had a TMJ issue and we went to dentist had a mouth guard as steroids for pain. it did not work for me after my steroids over.I got a pain on my teeth and took a scan of my teeth, dentist told me o had a hairline fracture and did a root canal , after that I had a pain on my chin to throat and felt stuck on my neck . My husband took me to ER. They did a CT and found I have a ossified styloid process and we got an appoinment with ENT. She told me it is not because of ES, I might have a chronic infection and she put me on antibiotics for 20 days.
But we were not satisfied and went to another ENT doctor, he ordered an CT with contrast. Everything was normal other than this Ossified styloid process. He suggested me I might have muscle spasm and reflux and gave a medication for that.
We still not satisfied and our family doctor suggested us to meet ENT surgeon in Baylor’s college of medicine in 14 days. I am waiting to have a good positive answer at least from this doctor.
If they surgically remove this will it be ease with the symptoms. Please give me a positive answers . I am little afraid.
