I am sorry you have an AN, but I'm happy for you that it has been found before it grew to be a large tumor. I have most of the same symptoms, but mine was 2cm before the drs figured out what I had. The fullness in the ear thing has subsided, for some reason. That makes me happy. At least something went away! Anyway, this is a great place for information and support and perhaps even making new friends. And when you get mad, or sick and tired of the whole thing and need a place to vent - then this is the place for that too. We've all been there, believe me. I still feel like I've stepped into some alternate Universe situation, and that one of these days I'll step out of this one and be back to my other "normal" life. So we all have pretty much shared that overwhelming feeling of "What The Heck Is Going On Here?", moments. I wish you the best of luck in your treatment (whatever and whenever that might be) and recovery.
