Well, it sounds like: you have had a good evaluation already. The most serious thing, a brain tumor, has apparently been excluded. I know it is VERY anxiety producing to not have a concrete explanation for your symptoms. Unfortunately, to your doctor's frustration as well as your own, this is sometimes the case. More often than not, in these situations, the symptoms resolve on their own...how long is another story:(
