The boop, boop, tinnitus I reported in May only lasted a couple of days then stopped.
Something else happened in June but I wanted to wait a couple of weeks before commenting, just to see if it was short lived or not.
One of my issues that started in December 2011 was dry eyes. During the night I would wake up feeling like I had sand in my left eye and my right eyelid would be stuck to my eyeball. Opening my eyes would feel like my right eyeball got poked with a stick and the pain would last for a few hours. My ophthalmologist found nothing wrong and said use artificial tears. That was before I was diagnosed with AN. So for the past year and a half or so I've been using Refresh frequently. I learned early on to wake up, keep my eyes closed, irrigate, gently pull my right eyelid away from the eyeball till it just popped loose without any pain.
Suddenly, one night about two weeks ago I awoke in the middle of the night with no symptoms and both eyes opened with no issues so I did not reach for the Refresh. Same thing the next morning and every night and morning for the past couple of weeks and I have not needed the Refresh since then.
I've never been able to determine with any degree of certainty whether the AN caused the dry eyes but the dry eyes were coincidental to the onset of my other symptoms.
If the AN was the cause of the dry eyes is it possible that the post GK death of the AN has reached a point where it no longer affects the eyes?
I don't know. I doubt if anybody does. I'll bring it up with my ophthalmologist next visit.
Meantime, I'm happy that there's one less medical thing to bother me, knock on wood.
One last thing. I have lost 45 lbs since March 21.
Next report will be after my next MRI later this month or early August.
