I get intense shooting pains on the left side of my head, just above/around the ear, and I also have a very sore and stiff neck.
It sometimes feels like my heart beats irregularly and very hard.
I have dizzy spells and sometimes feel very foggy.
My legs and arms feel “weak”, not all the time, but frequently. My legs all the way up the thigh and down to my feet feels like they are tingling, the feeling you get just when your feet or legs fall asleep and then start to wake up, kind of an aching tingly feeling and it also feels like it hurts “inside the bones” in my legs.
Surgical – For many PSS cases surgery is the treatment of choice. The abnormal vessel that is shunting blood around the liver is identified and closed (ligated) to minimize blood flowing through it. When the abnormal blood vessel is ligated blood will now flow through the liver instead of around it. This is readily accomplished for solitary extrahepatic shunts. Intrahepatic shunts can be more difficult
to identify and ligate. Post surgical monitoring is important. If the pressure within the liver becomes too high due to the increased blood flow through the liver then the ligation on the shunting vessel(s) must be reduced or removed.
