I´m from spain, i don´t speak enghlish very well, sorry if i say something wrong.
here my case:
In dicember of 2010 I started blurring the right eye for a few seconds to get up. One day I saw black, and I was rushed to an ophthalmologist. He told me I had swollen optic nerve.
They sent me to the ER, but thought he had another eye disease, was prescribed cortisone and left the next day the plant to get a campometría ophthalmology. Another doctor realized what could be and sent me back to emergency for me to do a CT scan and lumbar puncture.
The TAC went well, but coincidentally I had bad flu and I was breathing, I had a chest plate and had pneumonia, so I admitted to intensive care with respiratory failure.
I spent about 15 days inthe hospital, and doctors were thinking it was optic neuritis, kept giving me cortisone.
when I was a revision of the Food eye ophthalmology plant did not understand why I had the puncture.
they gave me time with neurology for lumbar puncture.
and effectively if it had pseudotumor cerebri, my pressure was 28.
I was prescribed diuretics, and have been revised with the ophthalmologist, the 1 revision had papilledema improved somewhat in the second review had deteriorated a bit, so she sent me that I review the neurologists.
last week I went to the last revision to the ophthalmologist and she was stunned because the optic nerve inflammation had almost disappeared.
The next day I went to the neurologist and I will review in 3 months.
In my case I believe that pseudotumor cerebri is caused by obesity, since January I've lost about 12 kilos and they believe that I've improved.
I have also had other symptoms, pain behind the eyes, pressure in right ear, headache, photosensitivity, I dislike loud noises, stiff neck.
More or less this is the summary of my experience, just another day story details.
Much encouragement to everyone.
