Hi.. Most commonly noticed symptoms of pseudotumour cerebri are headache, vomiting.. Papilloedema may be part of the same condition.. Since your symptoms are more diffuse, it probably may be induced by the psychological factors such as anxiety... If these symptoms are severe and affecting your daily activities significantly, you may have to consider consulting a psychologist.. Counselling and therapy and if required medications..
