cerebellar ataxia and thyroid: does anyone who is... - Ataxia UK
under the nhs site one of the causes of ataxia is an underactive thyroid. my neurologist checked me for thyroid antibodies but mine came back negative. I read thyroid antibodies can attack the cellerbellum. always worth checking. I;m still looking for answers to my ataxia, the docters havn't found it yet so its keep going.
Sorry to know you are having so many problems and yet NO help from the medical profession.
I have hypothyroidism and over the last 2/3 years (with hindsight a longer period of time) I have developed many other problems: dizziness, loosing my balance, pins and needles, deteriorating vision, etc. I suppose this could be called ataxia... Reading your post has made me wonder. Would you mind telling me if you have been diagnosed with cerebellar ataxia, and how (contrast MRI scan?) and if so who referred you for diagnosis? I am interested to find out.. So thank you if you are able to reply to my post.
I feel for you and hope in vain someone in the medical profession will be able to give you answers and much needed help. All members of this forum will give you much support and good advice too.
My very best wishes.
