I’m new here, done some research on this helpful site and things are falling in to place.
(Sorry for the language and grammar, i’m from the netherlands).
In 2014 i’ve had a tonsillectomy. The doctor told me that on the left there was a huge inflammatory tonsil which was deeply removed.
Ever since i’ve had the constant feeling of something stuck in my throat.
I went back to the ENT doctor 2 months later, who made a CT scan (with diagnose question eagles) which then showed no abnormality. He told me the scar tissue needed 2 years to recover. And it would probably get better.
Actually, it got worse, and because of the normal ct scan, I dropped the idea of eagles and started living with them.
Following symptoms started, all on the left;
- Feeling of something stuck in my throat.
- occipital pain + tensed neck and shoulder. All the time.
- numb feeling on the left side of my head.
- Vision problems.
- tongue cramps. (horrible)
- oculair migraine. (no headache migraine, only visual aura).
All of this started after my tonsillectomy and it gotten worse last year. My left eye sight is giving me troubles and the feeling of " light headed" on the left as well. I wear shady glasses a lot of the time.
Next week i’m off to another ENT doctor who is familiar with eagles.
I’m 100% sure that i have developed eagles after a tonsillectomy, and the thought of maybe getting surgery and find relieve of all this symptoms makes me looking forward to it.
My questions for you are;
What kind of form can you develop after a tonsillectomy.
I’ve read about the enlonged ligament, the calcified ligament and the vascular form.
Can all forms of eagle develop after this surgery? Or just the scar tissue tightening around the ligament?
What kind of eagle makes me experience all this symptoms. I recognize myself also in the vascular one. (dizziness and eye sight problems).
Next week, at the ENT, what kind of check ups should I point to?
Can eagles after a tonsillectomy be fixed with a new surgery? Any experiences?
Some extra information;
Last year, I suffered a very small cerebral bleeding, the ct scan showed a cavernoma, which is a small packing of abnormal venous blood vessels.
The symptoms (numbness, eye sight and pain) I had were not understood with the cerebral condition, because of the location of the cavernoma.
Which made the small bleeding look like a chance hit.
Cavernoma rarely give symptoms.
Thank you all for reading my story, I hope you can help me out a little!
