My balance has been very poor for some time now and I have put it down to my fibro. Today I saw a neurologist who has diagnosed me with ataxia. There are various causes of this conditions. I now need an urgent MRI scan to check if the cereberal part of my brain has shrunk. Hopefully this is not the case, whatever the cause it is a condtion that will only get worse. I could end up having to use a wheelchair. I suppose the moral of this story is, dont let your GP's fob you off with everything down to fibro or even worse "in your mind". Check things out xxx
