User rating for this question
I have had pressure on the frontal lobe of my brain since September but my MRI, CATscan, EEG are all normal. I am experiencing short term memory, problems with speech, problems with saying what I want to say, mood swings when put under pressure, etc. What type of doctor should I see? My neurologist just looks at me like I don't know what I am trying to explain.?
