I am brand new to this site, but it has already helped me make sense of what is happening. Thank you to everyone who are so open and willing to share in order to help others.
My symptom list: dizziness, problems swallowing (I can no longer swallow pills), tinnitus, ear pain, ear popping, pain in my throat, inability to open my mouth wide, headaches, tingling in face/head, neck pain, and neck popping when I turn to the right. I also have bulging discs from c-3 to c-6 and bone spurs on c-5 and c-6.
My potential diagnosis came when my dentist discovered the ligaments in my jaw are calcified. He dismissed it, but I began doing some research on my own and that’s when I found out about Eagle Syndrome. I brought this information to my doctor at the VA and she ordered a set of x-rays. The report came back with probable stylohyoid ligament ossification and now I’m waiting to be scheduled for a CT and a referral to ENT.
I have included a picture of one of my x-rays just to see if anyone notices anything regarding my ligaments or the styloid process itself. Thank you for any advice or help you can provide.
