I have suspected IIH... Everytime I get up the stairs I get a pulse in my head and my whole right eyeball pulsates. Is this apart of IIH or do I need to get this looked into? Thank you.

Thank you for your question.The most common symptom of IIH is headache and it can also lead to vision problems.The symptoms that you are mentioning do not fit into IIH as far as I am concerned.Do you have your blood pressure monitored regularly?Is it normal?Regards
