IIH - Remember the 3 P's

As you now know with IIH it's all about changing the way you do things and adapting your routine and daily life to be able to manage this disease/condition. It might sound easier said than done, but we wouldn't be advising you to do this if it wasn't possible. So we've broken it down to the 3 P's which are easy and simple to remember.

Remember the three P's

Prioritise your work

Organise what is the most important task first to last. If there are things that can wait till another day, leave them till another day. Don't try to push everything into one day if it isn't necessary to do so. Keep a log sheet of how certain tasks affect you and how. This will aid you in adapting your approach to tasks.

Pace yourself

Don't try to do everything at once, make sure you take breaks and pay attention to what your body is telling you. If you begin to feel a headache coming on, keep on top of the pain immediately with pain relief. Don't wait till it takes a hold because the pain relief will take time to work.


You can be more productive by paying attention to the effects certain tasks have on your body. By relearning how to do things in a different way you will, as time goes on be able to build up to doing more. The main aim of the 3 P's is to help you to adapt your lifestyle so that you can retain some control and independence while living with IIH. These are the building blocks with which your life can once again be under your control.
