Hi Erin, apologies took me so long to see your kind message. Yes, your message is helpful. Seems to me that sometimes there are conflicting diagnoses (NIH and Mayo), which produces even more worry. I do know that tests have to be conducted to see if one is a candidate for a shunt, and from all my readings, a shunt may also cause a number of complications once inserted….so nothing is a perfect solution to NPH, seems to me. My own complication is that I also have Adhesive Arachnoiditis finally diagnosed in 2010, and current symptoms of NPH can also be signs of progression of AA. I am so looking forward to my first evaluation appointment next week at Mayo. And efforts to tease out both neurological conditions. NPH has treatment, AA does not. Thanks for writing, Erin. I learn so much from everyone.

I am new to all of this freighting NPH so I thank you also.I don’t know where to go for a second opinion. My feet and legs are numb but they don’t feel like heavy weights?
