We Have Water on the Brain

"We Have Water on the Brain" is based off the disease, hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. It was once more commonly known as "water on the brain," but is actually cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord.

Although cerebrospinal fluid is extremely important for life, the extra pressure can be harmful to the tissues of the brain. This disease can be present at birth, or may develop as an adult. What causes it is still largely unknown, but some causes may be complications at birth, meningitis, tumors, traumatic head injury, or subarachnoid hemorrage.

Infants who develop or are born with hydrocephalus may end up with an enlarged skull as it grows to make room for the extra fluid. In fact, the quick growth of the head and unusual size is what causes this disease to be noticed and diagnosed. For children and adults, headaches arise since their skulls can't grow to accommodate. Often vomiting, nausea, double vision, balance problems, poor coordination, lethargy, and irritability are just some of the symptoms associated with hydrocephalus.
