Symptoms Experienced By Adults When Stricken With Hydrocephalus?
I want to ask.rnI found out on the internet that hydrocephalus can affect adults. Dan said that the characteristics of adults affected by hydrocephalus are:rn-Headache, nausea and vomiting.rn-Visibility disturbances (inability to focus on certain subjects, ghosting, blurred boundaries).rn -Changes in the position of the eyeballs (they seem to shift downwards, the pupils are also slightly off).rn-Vestibular system (loss of coordination in space, precariousness and uncertainty of gait).rn-Clumsiness, lack of strength, memory loss.r n-Confusion of consciousness.rn-Incontinence.rn-Excessive restlessness, irritability.rn-Easily drowsy.rnrnFrom there, do adults get hydrocephalus? must have experienced all of that? Thank you.
Not all hydrocephalus sufferers experience what Keisya mentions at once. Of course the symptoms depend on the severity of the disease and its progression. In essence, the symptoms of hydrocephalus are symptoms that arise as a result of increased intracranial pressure (pressure inside the skull) pressing on the brain. Depending on which part of the brain is affected and how severe, it will give symptoms. Maybe you just have a headache and vomiting. But in increasingly severe conditions, it can cause more severe disorders such as movement disorders, seizures, decreased consciousness to death.
Hydrocephalus is a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid. This buildup of cerebrospinal fluid can be caused by a blockage in the channel, excess production, or poor absorption. In babies whose skull bones have not yet hardened, this excessive pressure can cause the baby's head to enlarge. In adults, this is not possible so that what happens is the symptoms due to increased pressure.
Handling depends on the weight. A common operation is a shunt installation, which is a tube with one end on the ventricles of the brain, and the other on a part of the body that easily absorbs brain fluid, such as the stomach.
So I hope it's useful,
