Should I talk to my doctor about my hydrocephalus symptoms?

If you suspect that you have hydrocephalus symptoms, see your doctor immediately. Hydrocephalus is best treated if caught early. Certain symptoms in children and adults require more immediate medical attention.

If you have a baby or young child and they begin to cry out in a high pitch, have seizures, vomit, have difficulty nursing, or are unwilling to move their neck, take them to the emergency room. If you notice an adult having difficulty moving around, forming coherent thoughts or controlling their bladder, make an immediate appointment with their doctor.
