      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hydrocephalus / VP shunt /shunt alterations
      Hello, my name is Junies and this is my first post. I had surgery for NP Hydrocephalus 3 months ago and a VP shunt inserted.

      I had my second adjustment to the shunt 2 weeks ago and since then have had really bad tinnitus - sound of a car engine revving up or washing machine on fast spin.

      The first shunt adjustment was from 150 to 130 and the second was 130 to 110. The adjustments have helped with other issues but the tinnitus is causing me a problem.
