In brief: Nervous system

Brain (cortex/cerebellum) and cervical spine issues, vascular insufficiency, nutritional deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity can create your Sxs.
MRI of brain & cervical spine to assess for disease (MS, neoplasm), herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or syrinx can be Dx'd. Blood studies (CBC, chemistries, vitamin levels--B12, toxicology screen) can reveal important clues.
