Well i have just received an appointment to see my neurologist this coming Sunday at 9:30. I am hoping for results of any description to be back now. My genetic test has been in Italy for almost 12 months, St Mary's, Manchester sent it there, not sure why though.
I have been diagnosed with ataxia for about 2 years but as yet we don't know which variant. My brother also has ataxia and his consultant thinks his is episodic type 2. My symptoms are more inline with friedrichs ataxia.
My brother was diagnosed 6 years ago but his genetic test has been recalled and sent to Italy with mine, again we don't know why.
This sunday i shall be taking a list of questions with me, determined to get some sort of answer lol. Will update blog on Monday.
I really would like answers as currently in limbo, if i knew roughly what to expect i could deal with it, up to date all i know is that just over 2 years ago i had a full time job entailing sleep overs etc and now i need help with everything, use a frame in the house, had to move into ground floor property as i couldn't manage the stairs and have to use a wheelchair out of the house. It is hard to explain but I don't feel that I am me anymore
