Hi I'm a new member and needing some answers. I've been under a neurologist for the past 18 months where I've had lots of tests done and have symptoms that have left me with a disability. The genetic tests have come back to my GP which says I have a mutation that is in keeping with spastic ataxia type 1. The letter says my case has been passed on to an ataxia specialist but I'm still waiting to hear from them, so in the mean time I'm over thinking things! I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what these results mean exactly as I can't find anything that says spastic ataxia only spinocerebellar ataxia?
