Psuedotumor Cerbri & Complex Migraine?

I have been diagnosed with Psuedotumor Cerbri. I just spent the day in the ER and they think I also have complex migraines. Does anyone else have this or know of anyone that does? What are the symptoms and what helps them. I absolutely do not what a shunt put in, is there anything besides that, that would help. Anything would be helpful.

  • There is a lot of info online at some reliabe websites if you google it. Sometimes it goes away on it's own. Lots of advice is given at the websites. GL

  • I was put on a Medication and my Psuedo tumor, resolved itself within a year with no shunt, it has reoccurred a few times though (years apart). When the PT resolved, my Migraines also became managable. Get a good Neurologist if you don't already have one.

  • I have to call my primary doc to see about a new neurologist. The doctor in the ER said maybe complex migraines or siezures. Just really scared because I already hve ptc and now this. Kinda overwhelming.
