I'm newly diagnosed with IH. Ive been feeling constant very high pressure in my head and often numbness in parts of my face and jaw. Ive become very sensitive to the weight of anything I pick up...if hold anything heavier than a glass of water I can feel my pressure go up, or if I strain in any way.
Yesterday, I strained trying to close a door that was stuck. Immediately afterwards a trickle of thin clear fluid came out of my left nostril. Was it mucus or CSF...I dont know for sure, but Ive had a dry nose lately and the timing of that trickle was suspect.
Today, the pressure in my head is much less than before, but not totally gone.
I'm wondering if the elevated pressure from straining forced some CSF fluid out of my sinus cavity through my nose. In doing so, it aleviated my pressure somewhat.
Has anyone else had this happen? Ive read about CSF Rhinorrea but it sounds like they tend to leak a LOT through their nose. Has anyone else had just a small trickle from straining and then it stopped? And if so, so do you mostly continue to have high pressure?
my daughter was diagnosed with PTC caused by a reaction to the minocycline she was taking for acne. She was in her first semester at college and started with a massive migraine, then had double vision and her eye turned in towards her nose. It took three weeks for a diagnosis, she went on diamox and her vision cleared but she has fatigue, body aches, still gets headaches and today broke out in...

Have had this on and off before but x-rays/blood tests have never showed any problems in the past. Anyway,...
