My sister has been diagnosed at 2 different hospitals as having "spontaneous
intracerebral hypotension". She is 37, active (usually!), with no other
health problems. The doctors think that the hypotension is caused by a "leak"
probably in her lower back where she has 2 degenerative disks. It has been 4
weeks now since this started and later this week she is being sent to another
hospital (at a regional center) for a MRI. She an only sit up for a bit
because of headaches and she is nauseous.
I am wondering how successful MRI's are at finding such leaks? If there are
oter things that should be checked?
I would appreciate ANY information on Spontaneous Intracerebral Hypotension -
articles to look up, case histories, other sources of info., ANy information.
Thank-you in advance.
