    Intracranial Hypertension seems fairly common in ME. Thoughts?

    And to think I ate an undercooked patty the other day.

    I have been interested in T. Gondii for a while. It is possibly implicated in schizophrenia, personality changes, slowed reflexes leading to motor collisions, eye damage in immunocompromised persons, and now, intracranial hypertension..

    I get very obsessed about proper cooking hygiene and people around me seem to think I'm being very silly. I don't. If you think something isn't cooked thoroughly don't eat it. Don't make my mistake. So far I haven't had a fever or digestive upset so I think I dodged a bullet. I think it's also more common in pork as well.

    Are the authors saying this is the only reason for IIH or that it could be one of the reasons. The authors go on to say:


    .

    Did something get lost in the translation or am I lost as I don't know about this condition?

    I'd point out that Dr. Paul Cheney has been long talking about "leaky capillaries" in the brain, and about changes in regulation of fluids to reduce intracranial pressure as a compensating mechanism which causes dysregulation of fluids and electrolytes, plus the entire HPA axis. He does not however postulate a particular pathogen responsible.

    I've been following research on invasion of endothelial tissues by cytotoxic T-cells as part of a runaway inflammatory response caused by signalling defects. This might also produce "leaky capillaries", and a cascade of problems like those seen in CFS.

    We might be seeing a convergence of research on common problems caused by a variety of pathological processes.

    Help I am finding that Drs. do not know how to diagnose Toxo and are misdiagnosing it as cancer especially if it is in cysts form and antibodies are not showing up intests and they will not consider sending blood serum or sputum to reference Labs..People are dying here folks.
