In brief: Need better dx.

Hydra=u probably mean hydroehalus=water on brain and can cause hadaches tiredness and vomiting etc if not treated.
Encephalitis is infection within brain and can causebrain destruction. Some treatments available bur DX requires spinal tap. If hydro DX by MRI and do not do tap.It is quite possible based on symptons you need additional testing and treatment.

In brief: There

There is no condition spelled "hydra encephalitis.
" similar-sounding conditions include: hydrocephalus hydrocephalus (also known as "water on the brain") is the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (or "csf") in the skull. In normal circumstances, CSF is produced by special tissues (called the choroid plexus) located in spaces (called ventricles) inside the structure of the brain. About 2 tablespoons (or 30 ml) of CSF is produced every hour. The CSF flows around inside the ventricles, and through passages (called aqueducts) that connect the ventricles. The CSF flows out from within the ventricles through holes (called foramina) and helps to fill up the space between the skull and the brain (and between the spinal cord and the spine). CSF eventually gets absorbed back into the body through structures called arachnoid villi. Hydrocephalus usually happens when the normal flow of CSF is obstructed, usually by a problem affect the aqueducts, foramina, or villi. Remember that 2 tablespoons of CSF is produced every hour, so if less than this amount gets absorbed back into the body, the remainder builds up inside or outside the brain and causes problems. The type of problems can vary depending on the age of the patient, but most of the problems are serious. Hydranencephaly (also known as hydroanencephaly) hydranencephaly is a severe birth defect in which the cerebral hemispheres fail to develop. Infants born with hydranencephaly may initially appear and behave normally, but later fail to attain normal developmental milestones.
