Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms need to be evaluated by a neurologist in order to make a diagnosis.

Normal scans is a good news.

Many times, the abnormality is due to abnormal chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain, which would not show up on CT or MRI scan. Most often, a clinical diagnosis can be made on the basis of clinical examination. In some cases, blood tests and PET scan may help.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
