    S2,E11: Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension with Advocate Amanda

    S2,E11: Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension with Advocate Amanda

    For this episode, we discuss Intracranial hypertension with patient advocate, Amanda. According to rarediseases.org, “Intracranial Hypertension (IH) is characterized by increased pressure inside the skull. Intracranial means inside the skull and hypertension means high fluid pressure. Intracranial hypertension means that the pressure of the fluid that surrounds the brain (cerebrospinal fluid or CSF) is too high. Elevated CSF pressure can cause two problems, severe headache and visual loss. If the elevated CSF pressure remains untreated, permanent visual loss or blindness may result.”

Do you really need my name? ,

If you or a loved one have a chronic illness, give these ladies a listen

No one really understands what it's like to deal with the issues of chronic illness like others who deal with it. Amber and Misti are so sweet and understand. Give them a listen, and checkout their social media accounts. It's a nice balance of the struggles we spoonies deal with, while not dwelling on the bad. Some groups can get a bit negative, but not these ladies.

I love this podcast. Misti and Amber always have great topics and it’s nice to listen to someone who know how you feel. They give great tips and sometimes it’s things I hadn’t thought of. Just a great podcast for people who have a chronic illness and also for family members if you can get them to listen 🙄

Best “spoonie” podcast

Misti makes it so easy to talk about the debilitating aspects of having an invisible disease that isn’t seen by society. I spoke on my battle with Lyme Disease & found Misti to be an amazing, empathetic interviewer.
