Hello. So excited to get input.
I've had the feeling of an ear ache, sore throat, neck ache, don't turn my head to the right or I choke, dizzy, tired and sore jar/teeth for years. I was told by my PCM that it all had to do with the thyroid condition - Hashimoto's - but I always knew it was more. It was confirmed with a CT scan (they were looking for something on the thyroid - by the grace of God this was uncovered). My military doctor is not skilled with Eagle Syndrome - he said he's never seen a case like this before "but the anatomy is the same regardless". He confirmed that calcified stylohyoid ligament is actually connected at the hyoid. Basically, he said that he could not guarantee that I would end up with all of the issues going away, and he also said that the nerve to my mouth would likely be damaged. I am still in my 40s and don't wish to have an ear to jaw cut and the nerve to my lip effected! I'm scared and not sure that a general ENT guy is the right path, but don't know where to find a "specialist" yet. I found this on a simple web search, so I'm prayerful that someone here is familiar with the SoCal area and can help me find a great route to get some help.
