I had a regular one without contrast. Also, I believe an eye doc can check for dilation of optic nerve which can also indicate intracranial hypertension. Do you have eye issues (blurry, floaters, etc)? It also says you can get neck/shoulder/back pain due to pressure.
I think next step is then spinal tap to confirm high pressure.
Okay - I’ve had two brain mri’s BUT if they weren’t looking for ICH would they see it? Would it “jump out” at them ?
I’ve had an eye doc look at my optic nerve - for swelling - I told her about
Lyme and she also had me do a visual fields test.
I don’t have blurry vision or floaters but I do feel some pressure behind the eyes which worsened on Mepron and for awhile I may have had a bit of blurred vision. (For a few weeks only)
