I'm new to this and thought I'd share my experiences.
I'm 63 and was diagnosed with Sporadic Cerebellar Ataxia 6 or 7 years ago although with hindsight I've had many symptoms for a long time before that. The term sporadic is used because no underlying cause has been identified. I was doing quite well with the aid of my 4 wheel walker for outside but on Easter Sunday I fell over in the street seems because I'd dislocated my right ankle and also broken it both sides quite badly.
I've had two plaster casts and an air boot which I can't weight bear without but I go to the fracture clinic tomorrow and maybe they'll say I can go without it at home. Keep fingers crossed for me.
