Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 27 year old female. I have been diagnosed with Eagle syndrome last year. I do not know which type it is, whether it is affecting nerves or arteries but I can feel the pain which is so tough to bear and my face is getting dull day by day. Please reply soon.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Eagle syndrome is common in females. There are some medications that can help decrease the dullness sensation such as Neuroton ampoule (nerve multivitamins). I suggest taking just one injection every three days. Anti-inflammatory medicine such as Brufen tablets can be taken twice daily. The second option is nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory injection around the stylohyoid ligament. The third choice is a surgical shortening of the elongated styloid process.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
