I do have those symptoms… Is there any test that I would need to do? MRI, maybe? Or do they usually base it off of symptoms?
Great question! I’m working now to get this in journals. It’s not new, though, just forgotten! I can see this on an MRI, and certainly via symptoms. Sometimes we can see it in the eyes, but doctors often forget about external communicating hydrocephalus. One author has coined it “IIHWOP” – Idiopathic Intracrania Hypertension without Papilledema”. I’ve found it to be highly prevalent in our population.
