    Hello all, sorry I haven't been posting much. I went to the eye doctor a couple of weeks ago and things have been crazy ever since. He had to send me to neurologist and I have what they call pseudotumor cerebri. Which is too much fluid on the brain.

    They did a spinal tap that day and the pressure was way too high in my brain so they did a spinal tap to drain if from my brain to bring it down to the right pressure. They put me on the meds. diamox and tramadol. Diamox is to help with the fluid and tramadol is for pain. Needless to say I have been back for a sever headache yesterday running a fever they gave me a shot in the head two times.

    Have any of you experienced that??

    Wow that sounds a little scary. I haven't had that but I know I had a severe headache for days after my spinal tap.

    I hope the treatment helps and you feel better soon.

    Thanks Shar, I really appreciate that. Maybe my headache is coming from that spinal tap. UGH!! I just hope it feels better soon.
