Thank you sincerely for this most helpful check list. I will have all this info available. Finding this physician on the National Hydrocephalus Association's directory was encouraging. I am grateful to be a member of this Mayo group.
No, I have no symptoms other than short-term memory frustration. I credit the ER doctor's attention to my ear pressure & feeling of my head being 'full' that prompted the CT, which showed 2 enlarged ventricles. I am hopeful NPH has been identified early, and can be treated before the debilitating symptoms occur.
I had no success locally, but did find several doctors through the National Hydrocephalus Association @ Emory in Atlanta, a little over 100 miles away. I have a consultation 21 AUG. Thanks to all the encouragement from this site. I will post my results.
No shunt for me! I've always tried to be a knowledgeable patient for any condition; however, I do not have high expectations for a local Neurologist. Prior experience with that speciality was not positive. I am not swayed by a white coat, and if my consult turns into a dictatorship, I am ready to walk out, and call Mayo. I feel blessed that the enlarged ventricles were found BEFORE I exhibited any of the common symptoms. Surely I don't have to have dementia before treatment is warranted.
John, yes, I am new, and a week ago I'd never heard of NPH. However, every waking hour since has been consumed by online searches & YouTube viewing. I have been assured I'll see a Neurologist soon. If that does not happen, I will request a consultation with Mayo in Jacksonville.
