Infection? Hospital?

I have some strange things happening to my scar this weekend.
I went to the doctors on Thursday because this headache is crazy bad now and I cannot do anything to stop it. My complaints included being unable to lay
flat, vision being odd and my scar having big feelings of pressure inside it. He spoke to my neurosurgeon who was trying to sort me out going in for a lumbar puncture I think.
Now since that, starting on Friday, the very bottom of my scar, which is where I had a leak before and where I had to have an internal stitch removed a month out from surgery, has been sore. It is like a spot, but not a spot, kinda hard to explain. It looks l
ike a spot in the sense it is a raised lump, but it just doesn't look like a spot other than that. Also, if I touch it my fingers come off a little wet, and I stupidly squeezed it to see if it was infected and loads of fluid came out, but all of it was clear. Over today it has got more tender and now if I touch it, it hurts, but kinda deep in my head not on the surface, again hard to explain.
So now I am worried it is either an infection or I am developing a leak. I have been sicker than normal, feeling unwell from the minute I wake till I am asleep and beyond. I have been having less time between waking whilst asleep, the other night
it was literally 15/20 mins before I woke up, it is driving me crazy.
Unless something changes I am going to ride this out till Tuesday to see a doctor!

This is my scar today, over 9 months post surgery
