Hello everyone - I'm new to posting but have been a member for a while.
I'd like to ask whether any members have severe problems with balance but have not been diagnosed with the label 'ataxia'. Having seen several consultants for severe balance problems I've gathered lots of 'labels' but not this one and I'm now confused as to whether apart from hereditary ataxia - the diagnosis of 'ataxia' is a generalised description for balance problems rather than an actual condition unto itself?
I'd be interested to know if anyone has been given any of the following diagnosis apart from ataxia or whether ataxia has been seen as part and parcel of another condition.
ME with Fibromyalgia
Meniers (atypical - constant balance problems but no hearing loss)
I have severe balance problems, use a wheelchair 24/7 - it all started during a severe ME relapse and after cluster vertigo attacks.
Thanks any feedback much appreciated
