Headache In Children With Hydrocephalus?
. I want to ask Rosita.rnHow can we know if a child with hydrocephalus has headaches? Thank you
Hydrocephalus is a condition in which fluid builds up in the brain which then compresses the surrounding brain structures and results in disturbances or symptoms such as headaches, seizures, motor disturbances, paralysis, and others.
Headaches in young children and infants who have not been able to express their feelings, can be read if the child cries loudly and is difficult to stop even though he has been given water/food, does not defecate and is not cold.
Check with the pediatrician and do the recommended medical treatment, for example: installation of a shunt Physiotherapy and occupational therapy can be done to help children continue to grow optimally Many children with hydrocephalus can grow normally, but make sure your child has regular check-ups with the doctor. can help you.
