Headache, high blood pressure, bleeds from eye and nose, chiari malformation. Treatment?

My 19 year old daughter gets bad headaches . Her blood pressure skyrockets and she bleeds from her eyes and nose then she passes out. Then her pressure drops very low. This has been going on for a couple of years now. The head of nero at the children s hospital in Little rock Arkansas has no idea why this is happening. No one seems to know why or how to fix it. She does have Chairi Malformation but they told us it was just a mild case. Any suggestions. I am very worried about her.

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your daughter's symptoms. She is a young hypertensive and needs to be investigated to find out the reason for high BP.

The common causes causes are renal-related to kidney disease or endocrine-related (due to hormonal dysfunction). With appropriate investigations, the root cause can be identified and she would get better with treatment.

If you can upload the MRI report, we can comment better regarding the Chiari malformation.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
