I'm new to this forum! I was diagnosed with IIH on the November 10th with an opening pressure of 30. I was immediately put on 1000mg Diamox per day and two weeks ago I found out I'm now pregnant, about 6 weeks along. I've been researching wether Diamox is safe to take during pregnancy or not and I read many different opinions. My neuro told me that they performed a study in 2013 and the rate of miscarriages and birth defects were the same in the women that were on Diamox and the ones that weren't. I know I should just trust his word, but I can't help this fear. I really want my baby to be healthy and I read a lot of women that started taking it when they were out of the first trimester as the risk for limb deformity decreases significantly once the second trimester starts.
I would really like to have your opinion/experience if you are or have been on Diamox during pregnancy or know someone who has.
Thank you so much!
Hi all, I was just recently diagnosed with PTC and had my first spinal tap this morning. My opening pressure was 33 and they drained it down to 20. My pulsatile tinnitus is still whooshing (I was hoping that the drainage would make it go away), but right now I have really severe back pain from the spinal tap. Fortunately so far at least I don't have any severe headaches, but even getting up to go...
Hi Everyone,I am a bit confused after having an LP yesterday. The radiologist who did, or rather his attending (long story perhaps when not is as fresh and upsetting i'llpost details)said it was normal 8. the range is 8-15 Google seemes to agree. my neurologist says the range is 5-20 so 8 is low normal. i should try going off 40 mgs Lasix (I was taking for migraines).
