Hi there, sorry to bother. I have had some problems with my ear for the last 3 months : pressure, very bad one sided tinnitus, occassional numb tongue on the same side, constant dull ear ache, occassional same side eye interference (black spot in centre of eye), a bit unbalanced and lacking in spacial awareness a consultant suggested such symptoms were consistant with an acoustic neuroma. I came home and googled (!) and I am minded to agree, in fact I was relieved that my symptoms matched so well as at least it "had a name" Later that week and MRI with dye (Gadinium?) was performed and the next day the radiologist said that there was no evidence of a vestibular schwannoma. Whilst i am relieved I'm also a bit concerned as to what else it could be???
I wondered whether the radiologist could miss read a small AN and perhaps I should sit tight until my ENT consultant reviews the MRI upon his return from holiday. I am scheduled to see him Thursday next. Any views?
