Has anybody been diagnosed with this condition?
I've had really intense pressure on both sides of the lower back back of my head for over a year now. Gets worse when I exert myself physically (including standing) like pressure building and has even made me black out a few times if I don't sit down when it starts happening.
Got an MRI for headaches and because of the pressure and the neurologist said I have a malformation in the brain/spinal cord connection that causes buildup of cranial fluid in the brain (hence the pressure).
It got better so I really didn't investigate the issue any further, but now it's back and worse than before. Of course it would happen to me on a weekend. I don't think anything really, really bad could happen because of it but it's not getting better (more than 24 hours of pressure now) and I'm really starting to worry that my head's going to burst open or something. Scary. But seriously... what is going ON?
If anybody know anything more about this or anything that makes it better, please let me know. I've been taking Aleve, drinking tons of water, vitamins, I've eaten healthy, laying in bed... nothing has helped and getting up makes me dizzy.
