Do not strain w/ BM!: Anytime you strain or hold your breath or lift a heavy object, etc. You creating a Vasalva maneuver. So, it puts pressure in your whole system including your CSF potentiallly.

For years the back of my head will swell & fill with fluid within seconds. Very painful. Are the sinus glands leaking and how can this be stopped?

For years the back of my head will swell & fill with fluid within seconds. Very painful. Are the sinus glands leaking and how can this be stopped?

No connection: The sinuses are air pockets inside the facial bones. They are connected with the air passages of the nostrils. From time to time, due to allergies or disease, the lining of the sinuses drain excessive fluid into the nose or back of the throat. The sinuses are not connected to the back of the head. If sinus discharge is bothersome, an ENT specialist could look inside and diagnose the cause. Read more

Chronic rihnnoisis sound more possible than CSF leak even with slight head trams with a drip and ear acting up with fluid?

Why CSF Leak?: Why do you think you might have a CSF leak? Have you hit your head? If you have a reason to think that you have a CSF leak, the first thing to determine is if that is true or not with a CT or MRI. If you have no reason, then allergic rhinitis is more likely, and try an antihistamine and reducing environmental irritants/allergens, like fragrances, smoke, dust, etc. If that does not work see MD.

Craniotomy 3yrs ago. Incision area leaking on&off. Pressure headaches daily. Vision js weird lately. Sometimes blurry, spotty, eyes rattle side2side. Help?

You need to be seen: Craniotomy incision should not be leaking on & off three years after surgery. This is an indication of either a chronic infection or a chronic cerebrospinal fluid leak. It may or may not be related to your vision. The leakage needs to be looked at and must be stopped with further treatment. You must see a neurosurgeon to help you. Read more

That: That sounds awful! You really should see your doctor so they can listen to your lungs. They will try to figure out if the symptoms are due to a lung infection (like pneumonia) or coming from an upper-respiratory issue (like a sinus infection or other virus). Regardless, there are some great cough suppressants they can prescribe to at least get your symptoms under control. I hope you get better soon! Read more
