Just been diagnosed with Ataxia, not sure which type yet, got to see the neurologist to hopefully find out. I'm very conscious of the fact that my muscles will be wasting away because I'm not moving around much due to my unstable gait so hubby is trying to encourage me to exercise to gain strength. In his head exercise is a cure all but I'm willing to give it a go. Has anyone found a rowing machine beneficial? Thought about an exercise bike but feel it will only strengthen my legs and not my arms and back. I feel really sad that our days of rambling for hours in the countryside is over as I'm really unsteady now and boy the exhaustion when just walking a few metres.
