Hi, bpham -
At the time of my diagnosis I had balance problems, and some difficulty filtering sounds in my AN ear. Tinnitus was becoming more noticeable (I have it in both ears) and memory was declining. I had no facial tics or numbness, and no eye issues.
I'm now almost 2 years post-CK, still with the same symptoms, but with better coping mechanisms. I know now that stress makes my tinnitus much worse, and that fatigue really affects my balance, so I try to be aware of potential stressors before they blindside me.
I chose CK in order to stop the growth of my tumor before my symptoms grew worse, figuring that I could deal with the status quo indefinitely, if that was to be the result. I didn't expect my symptoms to improve, and they haven't. But that's okay - I achieved what I set out to do.
You're asking really good questions. I'm confident that Dr. Chang will be able to answer them for you. (I freely admit to being prejudiced, lol)
Wishing you all the best with your research -
