    A 17-year-old obese girl comes to the office because of a bifrontal, non-throbbing headache that has been worsening over the past 6 months. It often wakes her from sleep, but improves if she gets up and walks around. She also says that her vision is "not as good as it used to be," but cannot give you more details. Examination is significant for mild optic disk blurring. She went to the local emergency department 5 days earlier with similar complaints and an MRI of the head was performed and reported as normal. The most appropriate next step in managing this case is to

    A. obtain an electroencephalogram
    B. obtain a neurosurgical consult
    C. perform a lumbar puncture
    D. repeat the MRI of the head
    E. start propranolol
