I woke up Monday morning with the feeling like a head ache was on the verge. My husband and I left his sister's place for a 5 hour trip home by the time I was in our vehicle the headache was in full force. I tried to lay as flat as possible but with all of our stuff in the back seat along with dogs I couldn't lay my seat back. About 2 hours into the trip we stopped at a gas station and I got out of the vehicle and immediately vomited. I don't know if it was from standing upright or what.
I have hydrocephalus and wasn't sure if it was a shunt failure or not. I just had a CT on my shunt and it showed normal ventricles. I can feel that my Headache is ready to pounce at any time. Obviously I always have some what of a head ache but this weekend really scared me.
After speaking with my GP and told him about Dr. Scheivink he said my current neuro surgeon would have to agree for medical to pay for me to go to the states. I have had 16 brain surgeries to try and repair the leaks and have been leaking 18 years now... Any input would be greatly appreciated.
