Mild????: There may be no symptoms of mild increased intracranial pressure. And how do you know it is mild? I'm not sure what mild increased intracranial pressure is because increased pressure is increased pressure. Increased pressure is not good. Symptoms may be headache, visual loss, dizziness, weakness, delerium, confusion, and many others.

Above 15 cm H2O: Normal intracranial pressure is 5-15 cm h2o. Anything above that is increased.
