Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with the above early this year through an mri at Salford Manchester. Never heard of it but got in touch with Ataxia UK. It comes in attacks and my balance, speech, tremors are getting worse. No help no meds, but I do have major back spinal stenosis and a few other spinal problems. The same time of diagnosis I suffered from my left leg numbness, ankle problems and sciatic nerve only on my left side. To say I can no longer walk or hardly at all is something which is a huge problem.
Question. Does this happen with ataxia or is this my spinal problems do you think?.
I have asked my gp for a referral to Sheffield. I am 69 years old up to last year could walk quite a bit.
Tha is guys.
