Pseudotumor Cerebri

I was diagnosed with this condition just 5 months ago. I struggled with it for a while, and there felt as if there was no end to my suffering. I had headaches blurred vision and neck pain that just wouldn't go away. After about a month of taking the medication Acetazolamide I started feeling a lot better. I even lost 25 pounds, which I think contributed to the condition turning to the positive for me. I just went to the doctor yesterday, and found out that it's basically gone. There was nothing behind my eyes. No pressure, and I was finally back in the normal range. I praise GOD!! He is the only one who did this for me. I just want to say keep praying about it, and doing the best you can to endure the situation and you will always come out on top. I feel as though it was my faith that ended the suffering for me. It usually takes 6 months to heal, but it took only months for me. I hope this story helps anyone with this condition. You can and will get through it!! Just have faith, and hold on sunshine is always around the corner.
