Hi, I have Late Onset Idiopathic Cerebellar Ataxia, mild, whatever that means!! Can walk okay at the moment, but wobbly at times, not in a straight line. My question is, recently I have huge problems getting up from low chairs, or, as has just happened, cleaning the kitchen floor! I knelt down to clean the floor, couldn't get back up, even with the help of kitchen units, and had to crawl into the hall, and eventually managed using the stairs, and the banister post! Is this something to do with ataxia, muscle weakness in the front of my legs I guess, or is this something entirely different? I find upright chairs okay to get up from but low chairs, or deckchairs for example, would be a complete disaster! Let me know what you think, thanks, Jill
