Spine and Back Health
I have a sack of spinal fluid in my head. What can be done about?It is getting larger. Every time my heart beats it spurts fluid into the sack. I am 65 years old and am so tired of this headache. Can you help me?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. Unfortunately, you have not provided much information for me to be able to answer you question, but this is really only a question that a health professional can answer after a thorough examination. Some questions I would ask of you include:
- Have you seen a specialist?
- Were you given an actual diagnosis?
- Have you seen a neurosurgeon, or just a neurologist?
You probably ought to get a referral to a neurosurgeon to be diagnosed and receive treatment.
