Currently my com220 instructor has asked me to do a research paper on IIH so she and my class can learn of this condition no sweat right? wrong! The more and more research I do the more chz'd off I get. 1 and only 1 article has noted this condition as fatal if untreated. 1 and only 1 article has noted brain damage in patients who have not sucessfully responded to treatment. 1 article has an actualy list of syptoms besides a headache. The more I read on the more and more I realize doctors everywhere have put this condition on the back burner, made it no big deal, why bother not my problem type of additude. 1 article even says a antibiotic can cause IIH by causing the tissue to no longer absorb CSF, hmm I am going to assume that is not on the warning label!!!! rrrRRrrr.... I am no less than p*ssed off right now.
