Probable NPH...new & frightening frontier
ER physician ordered CT when I presented with Cardiac concerns from one symptom: fullness in my head and ears. The CT revealed enlarged lateral & third ventriculomegaly. Am awaiting referral to Neurologist. I have none of the classic symptoms of NPH. Do not want to wait until symptoms appear. I am 69. Had hard fall several months ago on bathtub, and other head injuries since childhood. Could this recent fall be the cause of the enlarged ventricles? Has anyone had a shunt implanted without severe symptoms?
