I have been keeping a diary of Violet's headaches, nausea and extra tiredness for a couple of weeks now and although she is still eating reasonably well, I have been worried and decided to call her Neurosurgical team and ask what they thought.
They organised for her to have a CT scan to check on her shunt. On comparing them with her last CT scan from January, seems that her shunt is still functioning...huge relief, as I was worried it may be the start of a partial blockage! So, they are at a loss as to what may be causing her to have daily headaches and the other symptoms. They have suggested getting her bloods done to check all is okay. So, Monday she will be having her bloods checked including her Epilim levels.
I am hoping it's not her Epilim causing them as she hasn't had a seizure for months now, the best she has been on seizure meds ever so far! It would also be weird for the Epilim to only just now have started causing these symptoms, when she has been on it since February!
