About Us
What do we do? We help you to adapt to life with IIH, by providing you with practical advice, help and the information you need to understand and live with this condition. IIH doesn't discriminate and neither do we, so wherever you are in the world, we can help you.
How can we do this? We too have experience with IIH, we have found ways to live with this condition and we want to share them with you.

What can you expect from I Have IIH? We offer you constructive advice based on experience and success. Although we do offer information on the various topics from authorities on IIH, we primarily aim to help you to achieve a more positive and productive life with this condition. We don't put a time limit on your membership, and actively encourage you to keep coming back, just to let us know how you've been getting on, as well as to share your support, coping strategies and friendship with other members.

We are members of the RARE Foundation Alliance.

Our circular logo: Blue for integrity/perseverance, Green for endurance/positivity and Yellow for optimism/challenge representing men women and families living with IIH..

By definition a "Kindred Spirit" is someone who "thinks and feels the same way as another person". Having a condition such as IIH can make you feel isolated and misunderstood, but not here. Here you can connect to people who know how you feel and what you're going through. If you have any enquiries please use the contact button to contact us.

We know you want a better IIH life and we want to help you achieve it.
That's why...
...we'll always be here when you need us!

Fundraising, Research and Raising Awareness for IH


You can help the IH Research Foundation with valuable research by simply clicking on the donate button and donate.

"The IH Registry is run in partnership with Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. It is the first and only patient registry of its kind for chronic intracranial hypertension in the world. It represents the largest collection of medical data on chronic IH patients ever compiled and continues to grow. The Registry is international in scope, with patients enrolled from 26 countries; it also welcomes inquiries for collaborative research from researchers outside the US.

It is open to any patient with a confirmed diagnosis of idiopathic or secondary intracranial hypertension, regardless of nationality or country of residence and it is FREE. Any qualified physician researcher or basic researcher from any country in the world is invited to use and receive de-identified medical data once they have confirmed qualifications and receive IRB approval for the research project. The IHRF communicate with Physicians and Researchers globally." The IH Research Foundation

If you are in the UK you can help fundraise for the I Have IIH Foundation by visiting our main website
