That is the condition I have been labeled with so far. They can't do a spinal tap to test the fluid or check the pressure because I don't have enough fluid to do it safely. My neurologists are new to this. They are used to seeing the hypertension variety.

Luv2sing, sounds like you need a blood patch. A myelogram done by a knowledgeable neuroradiologist would be able to find the leaks and seal them, as well as any leaks developed by the lp/myelogram. Any chance you caqn get to Durham, NC??
