I was hit in the throat with my daughters head. My neck reacted by fanning out like peacock feathers. This has been an ongoing quest for pain relief for over 20 years.
Recently, online a Dr. in Michigan said I have Hyoid Bone Syndrome. It feels like I've always a knife stabbing me in the back of my tongue. It is every time I move my tongue. It's very hard to eat, sleep, even focus on anything..with this stabbing pain.
Over the years, I've been to countless Dr's, had brain surgery, and still this pain, especially in the cold will just not quit.
So now, I'm in the New York metro area, still looking for a Dr. that will help me. Countless Doctors have never heard of this syndrome. I'm searching for some help, a Dr that will take on an odd case. So many have just looked at me, ??? So, I'm finally tossing this out there...Hopefully there is a Doctor that will please do something for this tiny lady.
Hi, hyoid bone syndrome, is tenderness at the site of the greater cornu of the hyoid bone. Injection of triamcinolone into the affected greater cornu can confirm the diagnosis and resolve symptoms. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
Many thanks Dr. Anitha.
Unfortunately, I've been seen by at least 10 or more ENT specialists. None of them have heard of this treatment for hyoid bone syndrome.
I see that you are in India. Not exactly too close for me to see you. Perhaps you know of a Dr. in the USA, metro NY/NJ area that you could refer me to?
