elevated protein csf

I am 30 year old female, with intracranial hypertension. I have a vp shunt since aug 07, I had a spinal tap in feb, thru the er and they told me I had elevated protein in my csf. I would like to know what this could possible mean. A little history on me, I went to the er because I still keep having horrendous pressure in my head but my opening pressure was 13 with the lp that showed elevated protein, I have been having what are belived to be seziures, but the way they are is I cant move or talk I can only grunt to answer someone I can see them and hear them just cant move. (I am scheduled for an eeg the end of the month) It has also been suspected that I have a csf leak thru my nose I have facial swelling and get a clear fluid thet comes out of my nose.( I was refred to an ent by my neurologist, whose conclusion was that I have a leak when my pressure gets to high and that my shunt might not be working) Any info. on what elevated protein could maybe mean would be apperciated.
