Re: once, honors student... now can't think and failing, cronic head pressure/headache
Hi...google psuedotumer cerebri and see if that is something oyu should ask your dr. about. Are oyu male or female? This is more common in females . However there are men and boys who have it as well.
It is a diagnosis of exclussion. A spinal tap showing a high spinal fluid pressure above 200 or 20 depending how the Neuro reads it.
Is your eyesite effected at all? Have you had an eye exam done lately? Sometimes your eyesite can be effected but you do not realize it.
I hope you get feeling better soon. My daughter was dx'd with psuedotumer cerebri 2 years agao. Neuro thinks the psuedotumor has resolved but that it has gone into chronic daily headache with migrains. She has basically had a headache going on two years now. She is in 9th grade and the past two years of school have been brutal for her. Consentration, memory retention all of that is very tough for her.
