Martin Arzola: Just Got This Done Today! Hurts !! I feel pain while watching this
DragonFighter1133: Just seeing that makes my back hurt
Rosa Banks: @ Emily Greeson I to have the same brain condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri or IIH (Increased Intracranial Hypertension) which I was found to have back on March 15th of 2012. I've had countless Spinal Taps done even up to 6-7 attempts at one time which was painful that I needed Morphine aferwards. I was always admitted into the hospital for mines by my Neurologist whose Doctor's office is located right across the street from the hospital including her home. The highest my pressure has ever been was like 30 or 130 which was high. The crazy thing is when I went into the ER complaining of a Headache I though that I was just gonna be sent home with medicine but never thought it would turn out to be that serious cause they thought it was a Brain Tumor at first. For my first Spinal Tap on the 15th of March I got a doctor who was training under someone and when I found ou I was receiving one (even though I heard babies get them when Menengitis is suspected) it still freaked the hell out of me..... excuse the language... LOL!!! Anyways she was better than most of the other Radiologists who are required to perform LP's regularly. I have read the same thing about it being rare and not being rare because you can get it at any age and it's not completely a condition that women get only that its more common in women.
I just hope your experience hasn't been like mines and wish the best to you and all Pseudotumor Cerebri/ IIH sufferers.
