right handed
Expert:  Dr. Bob replied 10 months ago.

This needs to be investigated. I would suggest you see your primary care doctor and see if he agrees to a neurology consult. In the meantime, get a referral to physical therapy. They can assess you for reasons for the imbalance and get you on a home program of stretching and strengthening that will mitigate the asymmetry.
