When I was diagnosed with Intercranial Hypertension my Neurologist told me I had Pseudotumor Cerebi, I asked him what it was and he explained, I asked him the risks and he didn't tell me anything except I need to lose weight. I went home and looked it up on my one and found it on the government medical library website, thank God I did. We planned on flying up to see my baby niece and in laws this year, little did I know the risks in flying with Intercranial Hypertension were. Once I saw that I decided I'm never flying again. I've had four spinal taps in the last year and 2 of them failed and caused me severe pain and the wort after effects. Is there anything that alleviates pressure besides a spinal tap? I'm afraid to get one again. I've lost 30 lbs already and still losing but still suffering. Stay strong everyone 💪🏽

After putting up with dizziness for 2 months, went & saw the dr today. I figured it would clear up on it's own. Nope, silly me. I had a "fluke" one time occurrence in late March and thought I was done. #Vertigo
Today was hell.
I overdid it with the vestibular exercises and ended up getting really intense double vision and needing to lay down. My boyfriend helped me through it. He’s a cool cat. We talked about how shitty our days were today. To be honest, he’s one of the reasons I didn’t spray vomit everywhere last night.
Yeah, I’m hilarious. At least that’s my supportive employment case manager says. It’s more of a deadpan/dry sense of humor though. Personally, I prefer gallows humor considering everything I go through.
I overdid it but the next day later I feel amazing...so it was worth it? I like this feeling: energized and happy. My anxiety and compulsions aren’t too bad today. No pulling hair (yet) and no obsessive checking of my temperature and scanning for health symptoms.
But I did have a bunch of dizzy spells today. So I am taking it easy. I’m doing the best I can.
Spending a lot of time in bed lately. My wife/caregiver is having another bout of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It's an inner ear condition that goes away in days or weeks. Since she's been getting this 18 months ago, we've met several others who do too.
We already visited the ENT specialist. He prescribed exercises (Epley maneuver) and waiting it out. It's tough on her but keeping spirits up.
You asked, an expert answered! 💡
🧠 Here’s what migraine specialist Dr. Berk had to say:
There are many areas of the brain which, if stimulated, can lead to vertigo symptoms -- a sensation of movement when nothing is moving.
If these areas are affected by abnormal electrical activity of the brain prior to the migraine pain happening, the sensation is a migraine aura. If it happens at the same time as the migraine attack it will manifest as a migraine associated symptom.”
