My mum is 59 years old and for the last 2 years has been in and out of hospital having various tests with neurologists etc because her balance and speech has been affected.
It took forever to get any kind of diagnosis, at first they said it is late onset cerebellum syndrome because in a scan her cerebellum is a lot smaller than it should be.
They also said it could possibly be due to a bleed on the brain but could not tell for definite. Now they have said she could have an auto immune disease which is attacking her cerebellum and they want to try a plasma exchange so see if this helps. Has anyone else experienced this treatment?
I just feel like the specialists are just guessing at the moment! She has had some speech and physio therapy that has helped a little with her speech. It is just the unknown that worries me.
