About 30 years ago I was diagnosed by a Neurologist as having Progressive C.A. He said it would get worse as I got older. As I am 69 now and it has now got to a stage where I know that the last few years it has got a lot worse. Walking with a drunken gait has been added to with slurred speech especially on the telephone --people keep asking me to repeat myself which makes it worse and I cant get words out.My eyes have been good individually but together they don`t seem to focus. I can walk but uneven ground and steps I have to hold onto somebody. I have read on the internet about people with far worse symptoms that me but in particular somebody said they went from walking to a wheelchair in two years.
Can anyone say if there is any treatment or help at all . I live with my children in South Africa and there is no support here unless you have lots of money
