I had my neurology appointment on Monday. The neuro compared two MRI scans and noted some degeneration in my cerebellar. Whilst looking at my second scan taken earlier this year, he said it was like looking at the brain of a 70 year old rather than 42!
I asked him specifically if it was ataxia and he was a little non-committal. He sent me for genetic blood test (he did write spinocerebellar ataxia on the form) and said that there were over 70 different types to test for and that only a handful could show up. He also referred me for neuro physio.
So, do I have ataxia or not? I guess I was a bit shell shocked about the degeneration between the scans to think clearly and ask!
I guess I need to wait for the results of the blood test!
