Idiopathic intracranial hypertension

by Em   Oct 14, 2017

My head's in pain
my joints all ache
I can't take anymore
for goodness sake

my sight is going
my memory too
from all that you
put me through

It's already ruining my life
this iih takes everything
leaves me laid up for days
my ears constantly ringing

tablets aren't helping so
my cfs pressures rising again
I'd rather have another lumbar puncture
than continue with this head pain

you don't know what it's like
so please don't judge me...

I've had this debilitating disease
since September 8th 2003.
