feeling fluid in head

  You answered some questions for me last week concerning a diagnosis of vasculitis-Thank you.  Next question-after having surgery a month ago and being on prednisone and dilantin since then, should I be concerned that I am sporadically feeling fluid.  It actually feels like fluid in my ear, is not painful, and comes and goes.  Does this mean the prednisone is working on breaking something up or is this a bad thing?  I also feel tightness in my head which I did not feel at all before the surgery.  Is this from the inflammation getting worse or is this just the "surgical area" healing from the stiches/staples causing some tightness?  It would be be so helpful to know what symtoms would be good ones and what symtoms would be concernng.  Thank you in advance.
===========================================================================
The fluid feeling in your head is probably not related to the prednisone,
I would not attach any paticcular significance to it, good or bad. If it
persists you should have your primary care Doctor check it by looking into
your ear with an auroscope. This is not described as a phenomenon in
people on prednisone, and is probably unrelated.
As regards the tight feeling this is most likely due to the healing process
innthe area of the scar since the brain itself cannot sense pain to its own
tissues, the linings around it, right out to the skin are very sensitive
however and are the source of these sensations.
