About 4 to 5 weeks ago my 14 yr old daughter began complaining of a minor headache. She suffered a fainting spell. 2 & 1/2 weeks ago the headache became severe & she began throwing up. She was hospitalized for 8 nights. We never got a good diagnosis- she had 2 spinal taps which showed white blood cells in spinal fluid so aseptic meningitis was diagnosed. However, the cause of the infection or inflammation can not be found. She was home a day & half and was readmitted to the hospital and diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri & put on Diamox. She had a third spinal tap- which still has high white blood cells in fluid. We were released again 2 days ago. The headache has come back along with blurred vision in one eye. We can't seem to get over 2 to 3 days relief after a spinal tap. Has anyone got any experience with pseudotumor cerebri? Has anyone got any other thoughts on the source of white blood cells? We were told if the source for that could be found and treated that we may be able to get relief from the extra fluid buildup.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
