In brief: High CSF pressure

Common symptoms of pseudotumor cerebri are headache, brief graying out of vision, and double vision.
Other symptoms include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and ringing in the ears. Signs include swelling of the optic nerves in the back of the eye and decrease in visual fields usually tested by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. A lumbar puncture (spinal tap) will show increased spinal fluid pressure.
