Neurologist 's  Response

Based on your details, and MRI brain being normal ,one need to rule out meningeal infection in view of raised blood inflammatory markers.

You may also require cervical spine MRI to rule out structural lesion which can also produce unsteadiness while walking.You may require thyroid profile, CSF study to exactly pin point the site of lesion.

Consult neurologist for further plan and treatment.

I hope this will help you
