Hi all Ataxia's, greetings from Scotland ,Hope you are all having a good day !!!
I just would like some feedback about my Balance and walking, I have had Balance problems for years, but just the last year, I have not been able to walk, not the way I was walking before, It is just the past year that feelings in my feet and legs became numb , balance and falling became the norm !!! then it was noticed that I was walking with my legs apart !!! and slower , shuffling , then Neurologist has Diagnosed me with Ataxia SCA 2, I have Physio coming to give me exercises, Balance ones, it is not easy, I fear I shall come to the stage of not being able to walk, Neurologist said I would end up in wheelchair, My daughter pushes me in a wheelchair when she has to take me out, Does balance get any better ? is Physio worth the pain , they are lovely girls, and I know they do what they do for my good. what are other's experiences with Balance & walking, how fast did your symptoms progress ? Thanks again, I am sure you must all be getting fed up with my posts--- same old story and fear
