I have late onset cerebellar ataxia and I have noticed a rapid decline in the last 2 months. my walking is really hard now, I feel very weak, everything is a terrible effort and the house is a mess because I get so tired. I live on my own so I cannot blame anyone else for the mess, but I start doing some clearing up and after about 15 minutes I feel exhausted and have to sit down.do other people find that they go in steps or is it a gentle decline? My swallowing is a real problem too and the Speech and language therapist gives me a lot of advice. I am OK in myself but I worry about how I will manage as I get worse. Does everyone feel increasingly tired ?
