    Welcome to the community @Shahzak and how are you doing? There are many types of Ataxia, I have Sensory Ataxia, have they managed to find the specific type you have? Has anyone mentioned Ataxia UK to you? A great charity and full of resources that could help you. Please ask if you have any questions :)
