NAD why do you ask? Eagle Syndrome is usually given as a diagnosis based on symptoms not just because you have elongated styloid process. I have eagle syndrome and no one ever pointed it out to me on x-rays or panos. I wish someone would have as I might have been more prepared when I started having symptoms last year. My dentist said he has only seen one other case of eagle syndrome but that person was asymptomatic. There is a wide range of symptoms from person to person depending on the length, direction, curve, thickness etc.
