In my case I never really got headaches. Just felt pressure in my head. Did you know they changed the name? Instead of pseudotumor cerebri, it's now called intracranial hypertension.

Im really scared of shunts and don't know if I would qualify for one since my pressure is not that high. I will look into it, although there's a chance I might be pregnant already. I'm going to test tomorrow.

I think you will be fine as long as your Dr keeps a close eye on you.

When I was diagnosed they called it by the new name, so that's what I always call it, lol.

Yeah, I'll keep it on check. I know this girl who's 26 weeks pregnant with IIH/PTC with a higher pressure than me and she went into remission like at 17 weeks or so.

she said if she finishes her treatment her eye sight wouldn't be affected. Its just if she finishes her treatment, she may not be fertile. So if she harvest the egss right now and when she finishes her treatment she can implant them back with the sperm.....
