    Hey adnanaz,

    The first step is get back to the doctors and ask for a neurologist referral. Mine has been great for me, they help with things like insoles (if needed to help walking), physio and any other treatment. They seem to make it go through a bit faster than a GP would as well. 

    Hope this helps x
