Default Ataxia diagnoses

I received a new diagnosis of Ataxia followed by ON, PCS,PTSD,Panic disorder from a violent assault 3 months ago.

I saw my neuro and I failed the balance test and the finger pointing test with closed eyes. My eyes are delayed in movement.

I come close to falling daily I can't walk long distances. I have chronic vertigo for 24/7.

My question is....Where can I find information on Ataxia? I have no idea what this dx entails.

Plz Help

Kelly

Hi Kelly,

There are many different kinds of ataxia. You can read about them at the National Ataxia Foundation at http://www.ataxia.org/ and at Worldwide Education and Awareness for Movement Disorders: http://www.wemove.org/ataxia/
