About 1 1/2 yrs. ago I woke up to find the right side of my face numb, hearing loss in my right ear and balance issues. I thought I had suffered a stroke. After about 4-5 months the numbness and balance issues went away.
Last month my current doctor decided to do an MRI to see in fact if there were any symptoms of a prior stroke. Good news, no stroke, Bad news they found an Acoustic Neuroma.
I saw a specialist yesterday and asked if the symptoms I experienced 18 months ago could have been caused by the AN. He said it is very rare and not likely.
In reading various posts I see occasional mention of sudden onset of symptoms like hearing loss.
I guess my question is to the members is it likely that AN could have caused the problems from 18 months ago?
