Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with an AN and awaiting my follow up (next Wednesday) to discus treatment options (surgery)! It seems that my AN stems back from a RTA I had in 2008 (ten years ago next month) which was when I started having hearing loss in my right ear plus loads of other symptoms that are linked. I'm curious though as to whether some other issues are linked to the AN such as fluctuating blood pressure (which was causing me to collapse), anxiety (I went A&E the other year because I was struggling to breathe and the doctor said I was having an anxiety attack), short term memory loss/recall (I can read a page in a book and be oblivious to what I've read so I avoid too much reading these days, I forget I've put food in the oven and only realise when I see the smoke etc etc...), and focus/eyesight (I'm 47 years old so my age could be responsible also but when I try and read my eyesight becomes watery and blurry)? I do have other symptoms which are very common hut was just curious as to if the above were linked to the AN and if they are then do these go post surgery or stay?
