Hi, as the title says I have just been diagnosed with an AN (8mm in my right ear canal). I have been suffering from Tinnitus for just over a year, which started after I began taking medication for a heart arrhythmia. I blamed the medication for the tinnitus and even though I changed meds it continued but didn't really bother too much. It wasn't until I noticed some hearing loss that I had my hearing tested and was sent to my GP and then to ENT and had a scan. I have now been referred to Addenbrooks.
The last 18 months have been like a bad dream with my heart diagnosis and now this. I'm confused and scared as to what the future may hold, I'm only 48. How do you cope with this diagnosis?
