Worried ?: I suggest you contact your neurologist right away to explain the findings. The idea is to find out whats going on so that you don't have to worry !. You might consider consulting with one of us. Thats what we do ! www.healthtap.com/drericweisman

How to address: The findings are indeed nonspecific and need clinical correlation. Not knowing further details about your history or medicines, cannot draw definitive conclusion. Instead, have a lengthy discussion with your doctor and consider neurological consultation to provide a specific guide to future therapy.
