I used to say that my legs got tired from walking but that turned out to be a neurological disconnect from ataxia. It simply disappeared when my ataxia vanished. At the same time, my visual problems when walking vanished as did my problem with washing my hair. Objects would appear to bounce when i would try to focus while walking. And my arms would suddenly become so weak that i had to let them rest. I suspect that the rest of my body is still affected by whatever neurological problem this is. Ataxia is the result of damage to the cerebelum. What if there is still damage but not enough to cause ataxia. btw, ataxia can be dx via a rhomberg. I failed this for 16 1/2 years but never since September 2006. I suspect i had gluten ataxia. Does anyone know the term for weakness caused by neurological or brain damage ? tx. x ps. my internet access is limited so please excuse my mistakes.
