Hi my husband has been diagnosed with cerebellar atrophy with a possibility of ataxia. The cause is yet unknown but he is being referred for genetic tests at our local hospital. Is it worth asking for a referral to ataxia uk at this stage? The neurologist we have seen is less than helpful and has underplayed his symptoms. My husband only seems to have problems with his gait and cognitive issues. Can anyone shed any light on our situation. Thank you very much.
