Spinal Fluid

10/27/2009

Question:

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?

Answer:

You probably ought to get a referral to a neurosurgeon to be diagnosed and receive treatment.
