Is Pseudotumor Cerebri ever associated with facial numbness and facial twitching? Also, how does a physician differentiate between Pseudotumor Cerebri and Malignant Hypertension since one of the major things that they both have in common is increase in blood pressure and increased cranial pressure?
I have recently been diagnosed with PTC and have been unable to find out if maybe this is why my face is numb and twitchy all the time. Recently, I have gone from it being only on the right side of my face to both sides and my eyes twitch at the same time and make it impossible to read, concentrate and at times even to stand up because it throws me off balance. It seems to twitch and go numb more right before and during my headaches. My doctor seemed to think that it might be stress but its freaking me out as it is getting more and more regular. I am currently taking Diamox 500mg 2x per day with an extra 250mg dosage...
Hello, I have been having sharp throbbing pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. This pain has been going on for a few weeks. I also have bad pain all around the top of my head. The pain occurs at night and in the morning when I wake up and usually last all day long. It may go away for a couple hours throughout the day but it does come back. Other symptoms I am experiencing is nausea, occasional tenderness, I feel emotional and vulnerable, and there is pressure in my head and I do feel it when I move it or sit still. I do not feel any pressure in my eyes or any vision problems and I do not hear any swishing in my ears. I have tried over the counter medications such as Advil, Aleve, and Excedrin migraine.

I have gone to the doctor and he wasn’t very much help...
For some of us who have migraines, the nausea that often occurs during migraine attacks can be the worst of our symptoms. It can be more severe and debilitating than the pain of a migraine attack. Moreover, it can truly wreak havoc with any oral medications we might take during a migraine. Many migraineurs have commented that keeping their meds down during a migraine is one of their biggest treatment challenges because of severe nausea and vomiting.
BUT, Here's a Vital Question:
Is the severe nausea and the accompanying vomiting truly making the meds, "not stay down?" The very, very important answer to that questions is, " Probably not entirely. " You may have read about gastric stasis and how it can keep oral medications from absorbing correctly and being optimally effective. That's not uncommon, but even if gastric stasis is a problem, SOME of the medication can enter our system within seconds of swallowing it.
Here's a Huge Problem:
Some of the same migraineurs who have commented t...
