I’d love some feedback/thoughts on the following:
Last 6 months or so I have been having visual symptoms: blurry vision, double vision, and this odd focusing issue (it seems almost like my vision is zooming in and out trying to focus like a camera). It started when I went off of my migraine medication Inderal due to my blood pressure being too low and started taking Topamax instead. I had a recent MRI and MRA, both fine, and some blood work, also ok. My neuro is suggesting a spinal tap to check intracranial pressure. I am just super hesitant because the last time I had one (granted was almost 15 years ago) I had the worst spinal headache of my life and missed almost a week of work. I’m just curious for those that have increased intracranial pressure what type of symptoms you experience and what you might suggest. I am decompressed - almost 19 years post surgery! AT the time of surgery I did not have any increased pressure. My headaches have also increased recently, along with ringing in the ears, dizziness/vertigo, and pain behind my eyes, but none of these symptoms are new to me. Thanks for any advice anyone can provide!!
