so because they couldn't find a clot or stenosis they're blaming me having high CSF pressure in my skull on being overweight and aren't doing any other investigations....i've spent 21years being overweight and only had headaches that lead to this diagnosis for 12-18 months. doctors wouldn't even believe me either, just put it to stress and tension head aches handed over a script for valium and said take one at the start of every week!

Gah, if it was based on being overweight then every overweight female between the age of 18-50 would have it...not 50people in south australia...and all of america would as well not 132 in every 100,000 people! makes me so angry and its such a cop out.

Oh, didn't you know - if you are overweight, let alone obese, the answer to every problem is because you're fat! Doesn't matter what it is - if you lose weight, you'll be okay.
NOT!!!
