Sneezing or coughing with a VA Shunt

Posted Apr 19 2011 6:53am
This topic comes to you from my bed side as I have been sneezing and coughing from pollen this morning. This is not an extremely bad problem. But I have an issue when I sneeze and cough since I switched from a VP shunt to a VA shunt.

I have a burning in my chest where my heart is when I sneeze or cough. It only last for a few seconds and feels like a pressure build up.

I also had head pain but I had that with the VP shunt. The head pain stops my ears up and put pressure on my eyes. It feel like I have a programmable shunt set too high.

Just a reminder to a few new readers I met recently. I have a non programmable shunt with a shunt assist or anti syphen device.
