Hello all! Sounds to me like pseudotumor. I was diagnosed with ptc a couple of years ago. Too much cranial fluid around the brain, that causes pain and pressure. Symptoms are severeheadaches, dizziness, pressure,papiledema(swelling of optic nerve), ringing and whoosing in ear, pain in neck and shoulders, short memory loss,etc. It can be treated with meds, but if that doesn't relieve the pressure,a shunt will help and if there are vision problems, optic fenestration. The only real way to tell if you have ptc, is to do an spinal tap. Don't want to scare you, but please check it out, cause untreated ptc can rob you of your vision. Take care and God Bless,SusieQ
