Hi Teleen,

In my case I have sca2, and my father had the same. it is a genetic disorder, my grandmother suffering ataxia and I know all the details about ataxia. My father speech is affected and he has some swallowing problem now, His age now is 61, I am at 34 years now. I felt some problems in the age of 30years, I am a graphic designer artist and I am work from home now, I can drive the car and little problem in driving a two-wheeler.

But my father is now in a wheelchair, I have a very small family. Dad, mom and me only, i am a single child..that's all now..Thanks

Hi Vinpur...you’re the first person I’ve ever seen mention shivers! I get them when it’s not even cold and they are sooo bad that one time I lost control of my bladder 😔. Good to know it’s not just me but not glad you have them too, they’re awful!

Thanks, dear friend. I think this ataxia always felt alone and very difficult to speach each other. I am from India, In India, I think very difficult to live with ataxia. Thanks

I know India is a very backward country(like uk was 100 years ago) and be careful,there's alway's someone waiting to take advantage of you or the situation.

Any questions you have about Ataxia I would be happy to answer especially as I have learnt to cope with it over the past 25 years.

B cool...bye

I do not agree with you, India is heavy in population. that I said, India is growing well. what your opinion about stem cell therapy. its effective for ataxia people

Where about in India are you?

Stem Cell therapy is good and may have positive impact on the Ataxia but then again might have no or very little benefit.(NOTHING IS PROVEN)

Are you willing to pay LOADS OF MONEY to find out NOT ME.IFI could afford it I probably would have it done??

I am from Kerala, GODS OWN COUNTRY. you said right friend, here I asked my doctor, he said the same opinion about stem cell therapy. nothing is proven yet. so don't waste your money. many other foreigners coming to Kerala to visit my country, your always welcome to kerala
