Question: Symptoms from Hydrocephalus?

 rmcrawford1 - Tue Feb 14, 2006 12:36 pm

I am a healthy 29 year old female with normal pressure hydrocephalus. I have only known about my condition for five years in which time it has never changed. I have been having lots of spells of dizziness and headaches lately. Sometimes, before or after these spells I have another strange symptom. I will be laying in bed, in the dark. All of the sudden, it will feel like I could reach out and touch all 4 walls, the ceiling and the floor, from right where I am laying. It may seem like a panic attack but I am not nervous or upset anywhere near the time that this happens. Is this a problem I should be concerned about?

Headache, visual disturbances, difficulty walking, and urinary changes may certainly indicate a problem. Regular evaluations by a Neurologist is recommended.
