Dick Van Dyke Shares That His Mystery Illness May Be Solved, Wishing The Best To Malibu’s Funnyman, Highlight Hollywood News

A big sigh of relief from fans and friends of the iconic funnyman.  Dick Van Dyke’s mystery illness has been solved, say reports.   “It seems that my titanium dental implants are the cause of my head pounding,” the 87-year-old favorite of stage, screen and television Tweeted Thursday. “Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks for all your replies.”
In late April, Van Dyke announced he was suffering “fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder.”   As a result, he was forced to remain in his home in Malibu, with his wife Arlene,  and cancel a scheduled ceremony at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y, where he was to receive an award.
Added Van Dyke at the time, “My head bangs every time I lay down. I’ve had every test come back that I’m perfectly healthy. Anybody got any ideas?”
He also said, “It has been going on for 7 years. I’ve had every test you can think of, including an MRI and spinal tap.”
Get well, DICK!
