“I suddenly started to experience significant headaches, trouble seeing in the dark, or on wet roads when driving and constant ringing in one ear! This was scary enough!! Then to be told that this was all being caused by an increase in my intracranial pressure, without a known or detectable cause was mind numbing to understand and get your head around. However, the team at Queen Elizabeth Hospital worked with me and encouraged the engagement in clinical trials to help the Consultants to understand the impact of treatment, but more importantly, to help them understand more about the disease and probably causes, so that they could start to develop preventative treatment in others. The approach to understanding my issues and how to resolve them has been leading edge and couldn’t have occurred without the research at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which was partly funded by MNTRF. I am now back at work and living life to the full in a way I couldn’t have envisaged a few years ago. I would like to thank them for never giving up on me and always looking beyond the horizon to find the answers.”
