The headaches associated with pseudotumor cerebri, or intracranial hypertension, can be mild to severely painful, as the brain itself is having increased pressure on it, as well as the nerves in the back of the eyes. The headaches themselves are usually near daily, but can be controlled with diuretics, diet, and weight loss. Sometimes spinal taps are used to decrease the pressure by removing some of the cerebral spinal fluid, and in some cases surgery is needed.It is important to manage this condition, as the pressure on the back of the eyes can cause permanent blindness.
