Hi,

First of all, you should do an MRI Brain T2-Weighted to exclude acoustic neuroma and vascular malformation of the blood vessels. Second, you need to do thyroid function tests. The prolonged use of oral contraceptive pills or a hormonal replacement therapy can disturb the other endocrine glands functions.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mustafa, Neurologist
