CT, bloodwork, bp perfect,whats going on??? Dr's without any clues think I'm nuts, HELP!!!
: hi tom,
: I'm not a doctor but I'd suggest having a cat scan and an MRI hopefully you have insurance to cover both of those they may be expensive.
: only my opinion like I said I'm not a doctor.Larry Coldiron
Tom- not only an MRI but a spinal tap as you may have Benign Intracranial Hypertension or BPH.(also called Pseudo tumor cerebri). I've had those symptoms and have had both a Pituitary Tumor and a year later BPH. Good Luck and make sure your Dr.'s take you seriously.
