Other than meds, are there other treatments that may help?

      For me the only option was the placement of a VP brain shunt.

      I had 2 stents placed, it’s what has saved my vision. Meds have done nothing other than make other symptoms worse from other conditions. My headaches are still fairly bad, I use ice regularly to help with the pain, I also use a weighted eye mask for my eyes because the pain gets so bad. The next option for me is a vp shunt which we are worried about doing because of my autoimmune disease rejecting it So we are trying to hold off as long as possible
