So I wondering if this might have happened to anyone else. In 2005 I was seeing a neurologist, who diagnosed PTC. At the time I had been on Diamox, Lasix, Verapamil and Topamax, and I either hadn't responded, or had been intolerant of. I had a lumbar puncture with CSF opening pressure of 25cm of H2O. Fluid was normal, MRI was normal, it is stated that he had been unable to visualize optic discs to confirm papilledema but had been noted by my optometrist, with some mild visual field constriction. Here is the thing. With nothing working to kill my headaches I resorted to smoking weed. Not alot, just when I couldn't control the headaches. I told my neurologist this and he said to keep it low key because of getting in trouble. He sent me to a neuro-optometrist. Which concluded that I did not have PTC. Could it have been possible that the papilledema that had been noted by my regular optometrist, decrease, due to a reaction to smoking the weed? Would appreciate anyones feedback.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
