Have the MRI checked: If yuor MRI was not read by a neuroradiologist or done on a high field MRI machine it might need to be repeated. Usually the test should be done with and without an injection of safe gadolinium based contrast. If your doctor is happy with the quality of the test then you might need to see a neurologist as well if you have not already.
