I'm 27 and this morning I was diagnosed with an AN. It was sort of a relief to know it wasn't anything more serious... I'm a mum and the thought of being unable to bring up my little girl scared me. I don't know how big mine is, I only managed 6mins in the MRI due to a chesty cough and feeling of being unable to breathe. Guess they took enough pics to find the AN. Guess I may need more scans so the surgeons can decide exactly what's best to do next. I'm actually more scared of the anesthetic... I've never gone under. My symptoms became more noticeable in the last two years... especially during pregnancy. Eventually after seeing things on Google about ANs, I decided to get it checked out. I only have tinnitus, very slight dizziness and hearing loss so hoping it's small. Thanks for reading, very happy to find this forum!
