Brief Answer:
Neurological evaluation needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Your symptoms seem to be connected to neurologic disorders, I can mention normal pressure hydrocephalus eg.

So the Neurologist consult is the right one about your concerns.

Hope I helped you. Best regards.
