Unsure: what caused the liquid you describe. Have you been told you have an encephalocele in addition to IIH? If not, it does not seem plausible for the liquid to be CSF. You may have a sinus infection, ear infection and or mastoiditis causing your pain. While it is probably unrelated to IIH, you should be checked as mastoid pain suggests a more serious infection. (back right side of head).

Migraines: IIH may be red herring and symptoms are more indicative of migraines. Try prophylactic treatment for migraines. Discuss with your neurologist.
