How to treat the intracranial Hypertension causing pain in the middle of the forehead?

I am a Benign intracranial Hypertension patient with LP Shunt done 16 yes back. From last few days. I had headache in the middle of forehead on n off that cures by taking saridon tablet. and along with that I was unwell over all as if not having any energy to carry day to day tasks. From 2 days back i had neck gland swollen under my ear, very painful n tender, neck is stiff , have back pain n body ache similar to that I used to have before BIH was diagnosed. At r Time also facing a lil blurred vision. Is this so.ething related to LP Shunt not working n getting those kind of symptoms or its something else.

Cardiologist 's  Response
The symptoms you described can occur with any transient block in the last shunt which will increase the intracranial pressure, I would suggest you consult your neurologist at earliest and evaluate for any rare possibility of the shunt not working properly as it has been 16 years to the procedure.
