spinal cerebellar ataxia
i am 57 years and it took a year to be diagnosed i started falling in 2000 i didnt think too much about it i would just fall then get back up i couldnt lift my left leg to get up a small step so i would go down in 2008 i fell hard at work a week later i woke up and my whole left side was numb i had to drag my left leg to move . it got so bad the pain was a burning feeling like my muscles were being ripped apart. i saw a neurologist and he gave me alot of test nothing i saw a ms specialist he told me i had conversion disorder so i went to see a psychiatrist. finally i saw a motion specialist who does alot of work with parkinsons she diagnosed me with sca i havent had genetic testing yet but my symptoms are slowly progressing i want to do things but cant my gait is still stiff my arms hurt to move them i drop stuff alot and typing is getting harder i misspell alot and have to go back to fix it im trying to be positive some days im so afraid i cant stand up i feel so dizzy and my eyes dont focus i would like to talk to others thank you

Change Neurolgists i as fortunate to find that my econd Neurolgist ws a specialist with MY condition. We got it early nystagmus falls and Dizziness like symptoms biting my tongue. Problems swallowing. Hearing things but not beian able to concentrate on certain sounds can be a problem Melbourne Australia is your best bet or place to find information about SCARS or SCA as we call it. Neurolgists in Sydney Australia a far and few between ( Not many) One Western Sydney Neurologist gladly took three hundred dollars from me for fifteen minutes work ( not even) I did that three times and all he couldsay was keep fit and stay strong and don't do anything too strenuous. now I walk for charities and do fundraisers to raise awareness for Disability and Try to encourage people in Any Circumstance even more able people with aches and pains this is not a commercial plug My Name is Rhys and my website which is just on the internet to browse
