Hi Jean,



Hope you feel better today, I would suggest if you experience the same headache again to ask your doctor to check your shunt valve. Also take note of your activities prior to the onset of the high pressure headache. By tracking your activities you will learn things to avoid, since most of the time the incidental occurrence of high pressure headaches are caused by stressful activities.



Hoping you will no longer experience that high pressure headache episode soon.

I have to agree with Saleh, that's sound advice. It does take time to acclimitatise to a shunt. I know it took a few months for mine to settle down. Are you taking Diamox at all? For the first 6 months of having my LP shunt my Neurosurgeon had me on Diamox until the headaches settled. Have a word with your Neurosurgeon or phone the ward you were on and let them know what's going on. I hope this helps, let us know how you get on Smile
