Hi hon, I am not familiar with pseduotumor cerebri but I'm sure someone will be along soon to comment on this and the bulging disk issues you have. Are you in pain management yet? If not, I highly recommend it.
Pseudotumor Cerebri is also called as Benign Intra Cranial Hypertension which can happen due to any reason. The present treatment, which is in the form of excess CSF removal, is a good one and you can continue with the same.
Your recent MRI is showing only mild Osteo-arthritis.So i presume, it's not as bad as it should have been as far as your symptoms are seen.
Would prefer you to get a NCV done (Nerve Conduction Velocity) , so as to help us know, about other relevant issues (especially near the nerve plexus).
Meanwhile continue on your physiotherapy. Meet a good physiotherapist, who has specialized in lower back / spinal physiotherapy. The main intention is to make your back muscle strong enough, to tolerate the pain. If they reach that stage, then the usage of medicines can be reduced drastically.
Hence would request you to please discuss after your NCV reports are ready.
Hi, Thanks for the response. I have not gotten to a pain management doctor yet. My medical bills are SO big, that I am trying to limit the amount we spend on it. I have looked into pain management, so, hopefully soon I can enlist help from them!
