DICK Van Dyke has been brought to his knees by a mystery illness!
The 87-year-old claims he’s suffering from an undiagnosed neurological disorder that’s robbed him of sleep and left him fatigued.
But, according to a new report, Dick ould be afflicted with a potentially fatal disease!
“My head bangs every time I lay down,” he said in a message on Twitter.
Van Dyke added that he’s been plagued by the headaches for the past seven years and undergone numerous tests, but doctors still haven’t come up with a diagnosis.
“It’s very troubling to Dick that doctors can’t find a reason for the pounding in his head.
“It’s been going on for some time and he’s concerned that this could kill him. He’s worried sick!
“Dick’s friends fear he has a brain disorder. They are concerned doctors can’t discover what’s wrong and are terrified it’s going to kill him before they find out.”
Sources say Van Dyke — whose wife, makeup artist Arlene Silver, is 46 years his junior — still puts on a brave face.
“Dick shows up each week at a health food store in Malibu and buys a health shake,” said the source. “He always waves and smiles even though he doesn’t feel like it. Dick isn’t about to show his public how he really feels. But he’s wondering how much longer this can go on. ”
