Hyoid Bone Syndrome

Yeah I have done that and yoga. Exercise helps. I have a very small frame and wear 36H so it's just time for surgery with that. It's getting worse every year. Strangely enough my cosmetic surgeon did know about the hyoid bone. If I hold my arms and lift my chest up, I often get instant relief.

I have worked to wean myself down on meds several times but then get a bad cycle (extended period of pain) and have to take more again.

I am not looking for hyoid surgery but would be interested in trying the pain block.

The only holistic thing I haven't tried is acupuncture. Honestly a bit scared to after how bad dry needling was.

@divinityrose-that’s great your cosmetic surgeon understood it and when you elevated your arms you had relief. So perhaps it all is in your straining against your chest. That would possibly explain the pain under your chin too. Acupuncture is far far less painful than dry needling and it can help you rebalance energy. You might find all of this resolves after reduction. I only chimed in here when you said you have seen all kinds of doctors for the pain. I can empathize and just wanted to say that there is a reason we have the most expensive healthcare, the most drugs and the most unhealthy people. This isn’t to doctor bash, but it’s truly because most, not all, do not look at the entire person and are driven by a health care system. Referral after referral and med after med does little for a persons self reliance of how to get better on their own or with the proper education. I was mainly trying to say, save your energy and only put it into things that will make yourself feel better. Rude, careless doctors certainly won’t. Go with your gut, is the best advice even with the body.
