Has anyone been told they have Enlarged Ventrilces?

My CT scan and MRI both came back with enlarged ventricles on the right side. Which suggests hydrocephalus.

I am waiting to here back from Neuro after he see's the actual films MRI and CT scan. to see what comes next.

I would love any advice or help you can offer.

The symptoms you have and what has helped you.

My symptoms are: Pressure on the right side of my head, from above right eye, the right jaw bone feels tensed. I have a "floating"feeling, very off balance, legs feel weak and shakey after I have been out of bed for a while. hard to focus, concentraton is off, memory is off and I stuble over my words.
The headache does not keep me up at night, but the minute I wake up it is there.
I also posted at the headahce board, was not really sure where this should be posted at.
Thanks

Re: Has anyone been told they have Enlarged Ventrilces?

Hi
When I was having tests done, a ct scan of my brain picked up enlarged ventricles and I believe it was on the right side also. My Neurologist wasn't too concerned she said I was probably born that way. But when they did the MRI it showed the chiari's and it turned out the ventricle was enlarged because of the blocked fluid.
I hope you find out what's causing yours soon.
