I am 32 and with six month my mobility has gone completely down hill. I am in very dark place and it my kids and my job that keeps me going just want to know i am too young for premature aging or this is completely normal. I have dyskinetic ataxia cerebral palsy and walked all my life but now found it very hard to walk x

    Hi @sammy18 welcome to the community! Sorry to hear this, I have sensory Ataxia and my mobility deteriorated rapidly throughout 2017. Intensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy has helped massively. Has your GP/consultant suggested anything?

    Hey my gp be awful and had to argue to see a physio. I left in tears and with him saying you know what you have nothing they can do plus pills like tramadol naproxen and citalopram. Once I got to the physio i argue to see someone who has experience with cp so waiting half hour and saw top one. Anyway frist time months feel like i seen someone who know what they talking about and he rather to the neurologist and pain clinic but everything is waiting but last month i cant walk without and now using a crutch x
