Finally, a diagnosis! And seeing Dr. Forrest, hopefully

For over a year I have seen all sorts of specialists and doctors. From allergists, ENT specialists, dentists, physical therapists, massage therapists, and chiropractor. One day I felt a protrusion in my right tonsillar fossa, and did some research. I had a hunch that I had Eagle Syndrome. I asked my dentist to take a panorex. He said he didn't see anything wrong with the xray. I asked for a copy of the xray, and took one look at it and saw the calcified stylohyoid ligament. I saw a different ENT specialist today who confirmed Eagle syndrome!!! I was relieved. I am being referred to Dr. Forrest at OSU. I know some of you have seen him and would like to hear your experience with him. I'm kind of disilliusioned by the medical field right now. BUt at the same time, I am happy that I finally have a diagnosis. THe pain in my jaw, neck, teeth, shoulder, and ear are finally wearing on me.

THanks for letting me join this group. Hope to learn and join in on the discussions.

It’s such a relief isn’t it when you get your diagnosis, knowing you are not going mad. Hope you get the pain sorted soon.
