I am being treated for headaches that do not have a name.

This answer was rated:

I am being treated for headaches that do not have a name. I was told it was Pallpademia but then my spinal tap was not "high" enough. I take Indocine three times a day. My problem now is that by mid day my eyesight is getting blurd and continues to worsen as the day progresses. Even with my glasses everything is just very blurry! What could this be?

DrDavid :

This is Dr. David

DrDavid :

the blurry vision could be due to pappilledema or possibly optic neuritis.

DrDavid :

you should see an eye doctor and get a good eye exam and possibly a brain MRI scan.

DrDavid :

have you had a brain MRI scan yet?

Despite the fact that the spinal tap did not have a high enough to make the diagnosis, you should follow up with the neurologist (or get a second opinion) - you may need additional testing including a repeat spinal tap.
