Since your LP pressure is still elevated and you experience many symptoms, I'm unclear as to why you no longer get headaches. I assume you have built up tolerance for the chronic elevated intracranial pressures for these many years. Your neurosurgeon can answer your question best. It's disappointing that you still experience so many uncomfortable symptoms. Have corticosteroids been tried?
