Heat doesn't bother me, the hotter the better, i hate being cold, i hate rain.

I am with you preferring hot to cold. I cannot do too hot, but in the cold everything seizes up!

I am glad I am not the only one who thinks this in the cold I turn into a tin soldier

Hi, I now live in Spain, when I visit UK I do feel worse so I do think weather does affect Ataxia.

Personally any extreme weather makes my symptoms worse, whether it's too hot or too cold and damp. Either way it makes me more dizzy and unstable, so the weather definitely affects mine.
