Terri or Ann question....

Mar 31, 2016 4:22 PM

Hi guys,
Quick question. I know they just brought my pressure down but I'm curious about something.
Are there any signs that I should immediately bring to my neuros attention in regards to increased ICP?
Was not given any further information in regards to s/s of increased ICP. I know that everyone is different, but I also know that Ann has been a valuable source of help and information.

I don't remember being given any signs to be on the lookout for. Sorry I took so long to answer, my shoulder has been misbehaving big time lately.

I'll look at the stuff I saved to my computer and see if that had anything to be on thw watch for.

Amanda, I know this will sound somewhat rude but this is a discussion and questions for your Neuro who diagnosed you with ICP.

It just sounded rude to me and I did not want to hurt your feelings. My only dealings with ICP was in ICU. We deal with it very aggressively and I just don't know other than writing down questions for your Neuro doctor , that's the best advice I can truly and safely give. Much love and Blessings, Terri

P.S. thank you for your trust in me. It does mean a lot.

I only asked that question because my neuro has given me no guidance as to what to watch for In terms of increased ICP.

Well umm I have really no real experience with anyone who is walking around with this type of diagnosis... Commonly, it is an extremely.critical.situation that created it for.my patients. Since you say your Neurologist did give you any definitive s/s, AMD situations in which to get emergency treatment. The next best thing is to call this doctor back, schedule a sit down with him and ask him. Much of the S/S of ICP CAN actually look like strokes, tumors , loss of vision, etc. You can look at Web MD for any future questions regarding your health concerns.
