Hello, I'm 28 and have IIH (idiopathic intracranial hypertension), a condition which for some unknown reason tends to affect 1/100,000 women in their twenties who are overweight. I first was diagnosed with this three years ago, at a particularly stressful time in my life. However, after medication and weight loss the symptoms went away. Three years on, I stopped taking the medication, as I would like to get pregnant and it is not possible to take the medication for IIH during pregnancy. Unfortunately, the IIH has come back. I am back on the medication, have some unpleasant symptoms from the IIH as I wait for the tablets to work and am unable to try for a baby. Does anybody have any advice or experiences of the above? I have a very busy and at times stressful lifestyle. Any body in the same situation who followed any weight loss plans effectively? Last time I was in this situation I had more time to exercise than now.
