Intrcranial HTN: How are you being treated? Could be increased pressure which effects vision, balance, cognition or other process Treatment usually is diamox, w/ propanolol, amytriptyline, or toprimate for headaches Steroids or surgery for vision effects. Check vision every 1-2 weeks. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1214410-treatment#d8 Call neurologist today or get second opnion
