To me it sounds like you've got a big empty space in your brain, but I've had a stroke too, so take everything I say with a generous handful of salt.

What do you think might be happening in your head?

Please be aware that the medical profession, whilst miracle workers, cannot fix everything.

well seeing as doctors are the ones who gave you that diagnosis, they're the ones who'll explain it best.

We have 24 hours a day of our problems, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Our GP's have 20 minutes (roughly) when we make an appointment or write them a letter to get their head around what we are asking them. Yes they have their training, but that is General (as in General Practitioner) so it's up to you to find the most pertinent questions to ask them and make them think enough to give you answers you are happy with. They also have all their other patients to deal with.

Specialists have all their patients, the innovations in the field and anything else to deal with.

well i will ask my gp to refer me to the doctor who did the tests. i can remember one of the doctors that that i would be going back as an outpatient... never heard nothing more. so ill well demand a referral to a neurologist .. i have symptoms of something going on in my head but what they got me down as having derealisation nothing seems real in my head . weird if its all caused by this . yeah doctors can make mistakes i know this for sure. i have my list ready for the gp so . we will see thanks tony x

Call and ask to speak with the doctor who ordered this test. Explain your confusion, tell him you concerns and ask for clarification of why he / she is or is not concerned. Good luck!

I had written a response above didn't you see it? Please check the post, thanks. I would not assume anything. I assumed people would be responsible and they weren't and results ended badly. Save yourself don't assume anything! Call and check to be safe. Concerned for you, Cindy in NJ
