Specializes in Dentistry

Have you been examined by a physician and dentist recently for these symptoms? You need a complete physical and tests to rule out any conditions that can be causing the blurry vision, chronic migraines, and numbness. Please call at once.

Specializes in Pain Management

This type of pain may be caused by glossopharyngeal neuritis and/or elongation or calcification of the styloid ligament commonly referred to as Eagle's syndrome. In a true Eagle's syndrome, intraoral palpation of the styloid process through the tonsillar fossa will precipitate an attack of pain. Rec.: see a dentist for PAN x-ray and evaluation, or ENT or orofacial pain specialist.
