Years ago I was diagnosed with Pseudo-tumor Cerebri, but at another hospital it was diagnosed as Viral Meningitis because there were cells in an LP- they stated that I had Viral Meningitus yet the only treatment that helped was for PTC. Years later I still have debilitating headaches (however not as intense as before) that have not been successfully treated besides the passage of time. Should I be more concerned?
From what I've read viral mentingitus is generally less severe and clears up without specific treatment. On the other hand, Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH) formerly known as Pseudotumor Cerebri, needs to be monitored because vision loss is a real issue for some people with IIH.

If your doctor isn't able to help you, it may well be time to consult a Migraine and headache specialist. It's important to note that neurologists aren't necessarily Migraine and headache specialists. Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special?

I hope this helps,
