hi, I have a rather deformed looking round belly. I know with all the other things ataxia brings this really is not serious but I just wondered if anyone else has one too.
Naturally I'm quite a slim shape, but I have a very round belly that looks like I'm about 5/6 months pregnant!
My physiotherapist says it the way I have learnt to use my body for balance - I stick my belly forward.
I've had this strange shape for about 20 years now. Before it wasn't too big but now as my symptoms have got worse it has grown.
physiotherapist says the only way it will reduce is with the balancing exercises that I do. But he says it's not a problem cos it's my way of not falling over.
Anyone else got the same strange shape - I'm just interested
