Discuss with doctor : Recommend starting by seeing your primary care doctor for a complete examination and appropriate testing as needed. Based on the findings your doctor may recommend referral for further evaluation to either a neurologist, psychiatrist and/or other mental health specialist for treatment. You may have more than one medical condition contributing to your current presentation. Hope this helps. Best.
