Cerebral spinal fluid



Ear/head pressure...but only when I'm in upright position...also sinuses feel affected....sometimes runs downs my throat...the longer I'm in upright position, I then start having issues with my neck and back....I have an aneurysm clip in brain...had CT scan of brain which showed normal except it did show my right cavity being smaller than the left (right cavity has shunt in it)...neurologist is having a spinal tap procedure tomorrow to see if my body is producing enough spinal fluid and/or if the shunt is draining too much...unable to have MRI, so depending on results of the spinal tap, may also do CT scan of neck and spine.  I do have one spot in the middle of my back which has been sore for the entire time of this ear/head pressure...not sure if it's connected.

Please let me know if you have any advise.
