Default Blocked shunt

Does anyone know the symptoms of a blocked shunt and when to seek emergency care. I have read the pamphlets that say such things as the original symptoms return, headache,*gait disturbance, etc., but I can't tell when I should go to the hospital and when I should ride it out. When I go to the hospital, half the time I'm ignored and the other half of the time I'm sent to Toronto and then left to find my own way home, 600 km. away. Any ideas?
