I have IH and how do I know when to go to ER for LP? Also have you heard of discs pressing spinal cord causing impingement on csf flo? I dont have a leak.
Why the ER?: Intracranial hypertension is NOT an emergency. Using the ER as a walk-in clinic is a MISuse of the ER and ER staff. Why are you posting that question here? You can't just order up an LP. You and your doctor together properly should decide if you need one. Ask him/her when you need one. Your doctor can then schedule it as an outpatient procedure ("day surgery"). That's the way to do it. ...Read more

Several: Generally, you're going to want to avoid high impact exercises as they may worsen the herniation. Avoid rapid starts and stops. Emphasize exercises that gently stretch, like yoga, and remember to respect your body; when something causes you pain, don't do it. I would also strongly advise seeing someone who specializes in this type of problem. You need to fix it and not make it worse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
