I've had a shunt since 2018... it was revised and replaced January of last year due to malfunction... the headaches are becoming unbearable again and I am just so over constantly hurting.

      Yessss! I had my first in 2017 and revision in 2019 (2 weeks before nursing school).. when I'm active and my BP rises my head throbs! Then I don't move around and gain weight.. then I don't cook and eat horribly.. it's a cycle. Due to my inactivity I get wicked occipital neuralgia from my neck as well. They also treated me for migraines for 9 months until I got mean about it.. come to find out I had a blood clot in my brain!

      😥 I so empathize with you. I’m not surprised they haven’t given you pain meds ?

      It's really frustrating when the pain starts to come back, are you in touch with a reliable doctor?

        @Cas_499 no! So I moved to the midwest about 20 months ago and I am having the WORST time getting in to see a neuro. The one I have had appts with previously has cancelled and rescheduled every single appt so far. 🙃 the dizziness and hearing issues are coming back from the pressure building up and the headaches are rough.

          @911Medic19 gosh I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm in a similar situation because I just can't find a reliable doctor anywhere, especially not one that takes my insurance. It's hard to manage this sometimes when you're on your own.
