I was diagnosed with Cerebellar atrophy in 2010 and the last time I had seen a Neurologist was in 2011. I was also a regular member of the West of Scotland Ataxia group which I found to be very interesting and helpful. My ataxia has progressed slowly since then and I now find that I accept my condition and just make the best of what I can do rather than what I cant. Am I wrong to suggest that I don't feel the need to continue seeing a Neurologist?
I now have ongoing chronic stomach/digestive problems which I'm not sure is ataxia related or not?. My doctor is aware of my ataxia and at the moment has prescribed me with medication to treat my stomach problems. I don't know exactly what I would gain from seeing a Neurologist again? I have also been tested for gluten intolerance which was negative (known to be a cause of ataxia). Newcastle is my the nearest Ataxia centre where transportation costs for me would be too much. Would like to know other views thanks.
