I have had an upper respiratory infection for the past three weeks. I am just now taking a round of Z-Pak and noticed a dent with a lump at the back of my skull about three days ago; and also have a fluid feeling in my head. Do you know what this could be? My doctor does not think it is anything related to the brain, but I also have bad anxiety. I am just nervous about what this could be.
Your doctor is correct, as nothing related to the brain produces a dent or lump behind the head. You mentioned a fluid feeling in the head, but it lacks in detail. Do you mean you have hydrocephalus, a condition characterized by excessive fluids in the brain, or do you mean something else? You may post details of what you mean by this statement about fluid feeling. In case you mean there is excessive pressure brain scan is warranted.
I hope this information will help you.
