My Doppler ultrasound found that I have high velocity in my right side, same side as where I found the painful styloid bone, even though I have it bilateral. They will send me for a ct angiogram next.
Can I get any testimonies that I won’t die and have permanent damage?
How quickly will they schedule the CT angiogram?
No idea, I think the order been put in. I’m here in short stay medical at a local hospital. It’s also long weekend this weekend and dunno how much they will rush this.
It is scary, but there have been a couple of other members on here who have had the same, and been okay waiting a while for surgery… I do remember reading a discussion 3 years ago where several members could get themselves to black out by putting their head in a certain position! One of our more recent discussions on
Apr 19 ‘Occlusion Of my Jugulars Will Styloidectomy OPEN IT UP?’ has been posted by Joanna- she has had an aneurysm caused by the styloid and lived with it for quite a while as the doctors didn’t realise. Maybe read that discussion, or message her for reassurance?
It’s been crazy how bad I feel, was all just an earache and it processed quickly to pain all over my upper body and crazy weakness and gaining feeling every time I’m upright. I can’t even have strength to sit up or stand longer than 5 mins and I feel worse that when I had mono. I saw that blocked artery can cause weakness, dizziness and fatigue. They are running a ACTH adrenal challenge test on me as I write this.
I also had mono. We seem to have A LOT of similarities! I am going to message you as soon as I have the opportunity and give you my whole story. Hopefully I can be of some help.
Hi Kandi. Did they give you your ultrasound readings? Like the diameters and flow volume? I recently had mine done which shows high velocity in the mid right jugular
Kandi’s not on the site anymore, so I’m sorry, but you won’t get an answer on this post…
Thanks for letting me know Jules
