    I didn't know that there was anyone diagnosed with bipolar and pseudo tumor Cerebri. I've had both for quite a long time. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in my 20's and about that same time it when I started having pressure headaches. I didn't have a diagnosis of paeudotunor cerebri until 3 years ago; I lived with this pressure type pain for years before sealing help. I know people that live with bipolar disorder but I don't know anyone with ppeudotumor cerebri. I am currently taking 409 mg of lamictal, 50 mg of bupropion, and 750 mg of diamox. I believe I'm on a small dosage of diamox but I still have side effects from it. I'm always cold. I am interested in hearing about others like me. Those that i knew they existed because of statistics but never could actually ask questions to.

  • Does smoking marijuana intensify someone's possible bipolar mood swings?

    My name is Baylee and I've been smoking marijuana for 5 years (on and off) and I've recently realized that when I smoke it, all the highs that I have affect my mood drastically. When weed hits me, I go through really intense and short bursts of energy (usually lasting about a couple minutes) before my mood shifts and I feel less ecstatic but still very aware of my surroundings. When I feel like this, I get really energized and, from what I've been told, talk a lot faster than my normal relaxed state of speech. I am currently diagnosed with major depressive disorder, anorexia, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder and I've been told that I may be bipolar or have borderline personality disorder because of how intense I feel everything and how drastically my mood changes. After my period of energy passes when I'm high, I feel myself become done with the world within the next minute or less. I become sarcastic and have this 'i'm a bad ass who doesn't give a shit about death or dying' attitude. I've been told I either get really depressed with this feeling or have an overwhelming sense of anger which causes me to say how I hate the world and wish I would just find the courage to off myself while I was still on some sort of sarcastic rage. Of course, I don't necessarily mean all of that. The thing is, my mood fluctuates so rapidly that the people around me question if I'm okay all the time. I've never been diagnosed with a mood disorder in my 19 years of living but I don't understand why I get like that when I'm high. I mean I don't think I'm bipolar?

    I still have my vision, but have suffered severe bipolar depressions off and on for 30 years. I get suicidal. I'm very fearful of how I'm going to react when I do lose my central vision.

    I was diagnosed bipolar when I was 14. So have been on many medications
    One caused severe ache so I was put on tetracycline and got Intracranial hypertension at age 38. Took eight months for a diagnosis and 20 ER visits
    I was loosing my sight so they did sleeve surgery to lower my body pressure and of coarse spinal taps etc.
    It's going on three years. I still have headaches but they are different and the worst part besides vision loss, I was never told what to expect so my memory .. I have sticky notes all over my house so I don't forget things..issues, hallucinations, constantly in body pain and falling due to equilibrium issues
    My family thought I was hitting dementia
    The cervical neuralgia and memory are normal and conversations are difficult according to the IHresearchgroup
    My question is does anyone have issues they feel are causing long term issues in affecting one illness more then before or adding to? I know obviously being stuck in hospital or home for three years..the whole illness of IH makes life in general worse, but have you had your IH headaches feel better but bipolar worse?

    Thanks in advance! No one seems to know enough about these issues as far as doctors I have spoken with

    Thanks

    Hi. I have schizoaffective disorder bipolar type and I have always struggled with being forgetful. Every day it a struggle to keep things together. I forget things on a daily basis and lose something almost every day. I work in mental health and it is interfering in my work. It causes me anxiety and stress almost daily and makes me embarrassed and scared. Every time it happens I get very hard on myself and I am really tired of dealing with this.
