Hi there. These do not sound like symptoms directly due to VP shunt nor directly due to raised intracranial pressure. The dizziness and vision problems could be due to increased intracranial pressure. You need to undergo a brain MRI to check the level of block or other associated intracranial lesions. Consult your neurosurgeon again and let him do a permanent fix or therapy for this. Take care.
