Hi, although I have many physical problems, right now I’m here to ask about my daughter. She was diagnosed with an elevated optic nerve. I believe bilaterally. She had an ultrasound which showed no dryeser (?sp), which they explained to me as a harmless calcification but unfortunately she did not have this which they were hoping that was what was elevating the optic nerve. She then had an MRI which came back normal. Now yesterday she had a lumbar puncture which showed normal csf pressure. We were all expecting it to be high. Now what? They took csf to do tests on but if that all fine, what else could be causing the elevated optic nerves? Thank you for any information!!
