hi ... a family member of mine for the past 2 months has had quite servere balance issues suffers confusion and sometimes slurs his words ...had a brain scan for stroke and that came back clear...was then sent to ear nose and throat but it seems the doctor now wants him to see a neurologist ....thinking of going private what tests would you recommend or any idea what problem could be...thanks

I would suggest you get complete blood tests including CBC, P-7, TSH, LFTs, B12, folate, CRP, and an MRI as it is more sensitive than CT for small strokes.
