IIH issues for 2 years, can someone help?

Hi everyone,

I am hoping someone can help me. Back in 2004 I was diagnosed with IIH. I had a non programmable LP Shunt fitted in 2007. I was doing well until 2yrs ago. It started with severe eye pain, neuro said my eyes were not restricting properly. Anyway, since then I have had terrible neck pain, lower back pain, eye pain with movement, severe fatigue, headache at back of head, numb face, numbness & tingling in arms. My neuro sent me for an MRI which has come back normal. I am wondering if my shunt is overdraining as it gets worse when sitting or standing & only relieved by lying down. Any advice would be great. Have my next appointment in April. Thanks
