I'm Judith from Ely, Cambs. Just been diagnosed with suspected Ataxia. My mother had all the symptoms really severely. It affected her quality of life badly, so suspect it might be genetic? Thought it might be beneficial to join the group. Had symptoms for years. Was only looked into after broken ankle fom one of many falls over the years. Waiting with anticipation of mri scan and other tests.

Dear Judith, A HUGE welcome to this site! I hope you get the answers you so deserve soon! My best to you...,;o)


Although a (still only possible) diagnosis of ataxia (or whatever condition) is a shock and can commonly take a year or so to come to terms with (it did for me and I am fortunate in that I only have mild symptoms of ataxia), it is important to keep a positive outlook and remember that life offers you whatever you can take.
