Hi, only describing the has nothing to do here, some times a major change in the test also may not have any problem.
To be frank it is a multi dimensional problem, and needs corelation of the symptoms with the findings.
So i advise you to consult a neurosurgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Thank you.
