i am new here and was just diagnosed last week. this came on very suddenly and i was diagnosed within 2 weeks of having symptoms. i went from being pretty healthy to being on 3 daily medications and having test after test. i am married and have 5 boys and my oldest is 6. this is very hard on our family because i have a headache every day. they put me on migraine medication that does not work at all. i just started my diamox today so i cant tell if it will work or not. i am waiting on my appointment to see a neuro. i had my first LP on thursday and i hated it. i am so scared of what is to come. when the pressure becomes too much i have double vision, that is how they first found it. i am afraid i will have to have LP for the rest of my life. my husband really does not understand what i am going through. half the time i feel like he thinks i am faking it. my opening pressure was 26 and my closing was 21. does anyone have advice on how to cope with this?
