    I have had this condition( or should I say, curse) for I don’t know how long…? Could have been there for 70 years as a result of having encephalitis at 4. Always feels like I’m drunk so had an MRI 2 years ago…confirmed the diagnosis as EXCESS brain fluid, Brain specialist says shunt is hazardous , prone to infection. Seems no solution . Damn annoying .
