:confused: I was diagnosed with Pseudotumore Cerebri 12 years ago, however, when I read the symptoms both peoples experiances and also the medical listings, I feel like I am wrongly being diagnosed. I have had 8 'episodes' but they all seem to be more imunological than neurological in regard to the onset. Does anyone relate?

  • Well, what are your symptoms?An ED doctor was certain I had Pseudotumor Cerebri. In fact, I was having Narrow-Angle Glaucoma Attacks.My symptoms were:Extreme nausea caused by light sensitivityHeadache centralized around my right eyePressure in my eyesA major headache months before with a 30 second black outLater I had:DiarrheaVomitingNauseaFor 3 plus months.Then finally I started having episodes of cloudy vision in my right eye. These episodes lasted longer and the cloudy vision took on a bigger space.
