Should eval trauma: The diagnosis of Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension always suggests patients should be careful, particularly when having headaches and changes in vision. While the trauma seems to have caused the symptoms, it would still be wise to be evaluated to ensure it's not masking any potential aggravation of the IIH.
