Thanks , I have an appointment with my eye doctor on the 29th my eyes have been filling with pressure and blurred vision, my question is can pseudotumor cerebri present with extreme neck pain and neck popping and sloshing?At times it feels as if I cant hold my head up.Is this due to the fluid build up?
