Ok, I know im slow on the update about my Dr. appt. But it was not great news anyways. Its is still a stage one which is good! That also means its not getting smaller grrrr. The Dr. gave me the same spill about losing weight blah blah blah...... So I go back in 4 months not 6 cause she did a medication change and wants to know how it looks between that time.

Well that was it for a 4 Hour doctor appointment ugh.
If any of you forgot what kind of tumor I have have here you go.

Signs and Symptoms Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is encountered most frequently in young, overweight women between the ages of 20 and 45. Headache is the most common presenting complaint, occurring in more than 90 percent of cases. Dizziness, nausea, and vomiting may also be encountered, but typically there are no alterations of consciousness or higher cognitive function. Tinnitus, or a "rushing" sound in the ears, is another frequent complaint. Visual symptoms are present in up to 70 percent of all patients with PTC, and include transient visual obscurations, general blurriness, and intermittent horizontal diplopia. These symptoms tend to worsen in association with Valsalva maneuvers and changes in posture. Reports of ocular pain, particularly with extreme eye movements, have also been noted.
