Hi B, I hate to hear how sick you are, and like most of us your treatments are revolving around symptoms, not locating the underlying cause. I will say that if you have high intracranial pressure, the benefits of treatment SO outweigh the risks of the diuretic effect. Please know that Diamox is short-acting, so effects wear off in a few hours, limiting your risks. I hope you have The Driscoll Theory? There is a chapter about Diamox that includes the importance of watching your CO2 levels to keep it working. That may be critical — please keep us posted! Not everyone has high intracranial pressure, but more than half of the patients we see at POTS Care do. By the way, if you could call the office (1-866-349-9905), the staff will call you back, no matter where you live! Hang in, my friend.
