I was diagnosed with spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 about 4-5 years ago, I'm still in full time work. My main difficulties are walking and coordination. When I'm at work or in the house I'm ok, getting up and down stairs I manage ok too. Walking with my partner is fine as i use him for my balance. I try to walk 10,000 steps a day but when walking on my own I sometimes don't walk in a straight line for long, I wobble and bump into people if they're walking with me. I'm not bad but I sometimes don't feel right. My speech is sometimes affected so I have to learn to speak slower and clearer.I know there are people with Ataxia far worse than me but my main question is do you think it would be worth my while using a stick when walking on my own? Any help greatly appreciated.
