Have a 9yr unfindable csf nose leak.Fluid tested+.Thinkits by my eye,wont do surgery tillthey find it.Im scared of aomebic meningitis.Is this a rationalfear?
Thank You for your query.
1. I am assuming that the fluid has tested positive for Beta 2 Transferrin.
2. A nine year old leak must be a low pressure leak.
3. A CT Cisternography may help locate the leak.
4. Amoebic Meningitis is rare and can be avoided by not swimming and diving, esp. in stagnant freshwater. Get your domestic water supply tested for amoeba; level of clorination.
I have a possible csf leak. For the past year, everytime i bend over or push, theres 1 loud thump in left ear, following a 2 month headache and lumbar p. Csf?
Csf otorrheoa has an aetiology mostly truma, your thumping ear might be simple inner ear trouble which could deb solved with simple betahistadines. see otorhinolaryngologist and neurologist for work up. Had it been csf you would not have been alive yet
What does an elevated ESR and lymphocytes indicate?
An elevated ESR suggest that you have infection in yourself or any process which is not good to body and lymphocytes indicate that this process is from long time rather than short time.
You should meet a physician to rule out exact cause of raised ESR and lymphocytes both.
