    Yes, CSF pressure can be high but not high enough to show on MRI as ventricular enlargement or cerebral edema (swelling). It can be diagnosed with a lumbar puncture, during which CSF pressure is measured. Have you been seen by a neurologist or neurosurgeon to rule out this and other progressive neuro diseases? Who are these Drs telling you this is all anxiety? I'm sorry your family believes that to be the case, but they don't know any difference if that is what the Drs are saying. I do believe you need to have a neurosurgeon involved with your case. High CSF pressure can also show up in the retina exam as papilledema (swelling of the optic nerve).
