Hi I have recently been diagnosed with ataxia, they have not found which type yet, my neurologist has taken blood for everything, I have had 2 MRI scans and a ct scan recently, previous to that every bladder test available, but everything shows up normal,
Things started around 3 years ago, having a lot of problems with my bladder, and tingling feet and legs that just don't stop, I have started getting bad cramps in my legs, feet, neck and bottom of my ribs
I had prolapse surgery and Botox treatment, to my bladder.
My bladder would only empty by a few MLS, I now self catheter all the time, my balance is horrendous, I topple over nearly every day, hurting myself a lot. I can't bend down and have no strength in my lower legs I also get really bad episodes of dizziness and have to sit down, I can be anywhere even in the shops, I am not on any medication for it. I have a healthy lifestile, eat a sensible diet, was fit could walk for miles now I just can't, I stagger a lot, even been asked if iv had a liquid lunch at work, I don't drink unless socially.
Any one help or suffer from same, I am looking for advice on how you deal with it on a daily basis,
