My Intercranial hypertension is getting worse (the pulsating gets louder as pressure rises). I'm lightheaded almost 24/7, could IIH cause this?

How do you know: If the intracranial pressure is rising? Normal pressure is 20 CM H2O or less (as measured at the time of a spinal tap) ICH usually produces blurred vision on reclining with or without a diffuse headache. Symptoms resolve immediately with removal of enough spinal fluid to bring the pressure back down to 20 or less. ...Read more

Could intracranial pressure be treated?

Could intracranial pressure be treated?

High or low?: Low CSF pressure is treated differently than high.

Rarely is surgery (optic nerve fenestration or shunting done unless the increased ICP is due to a blockage of CSF flow ...Read more

What is the pulsating feeling in your feet?

What is the pulsating feeling in your feet?

Circulation: "pulsation" is most often caused by heightened sensitivity to the systolic pulsewave from your heartbeat. This may be due to an increase in interstitial pressure (often leads to edema), which creates a counter pressure on the arteries, as they carry the systolic pressure wave throughout the circulatory tree. Try elevating your extremity and see if it has an effect on the pulsation (more or less). ...Read more
