i have done so much research on cerebellum degnerative ataxia. at first they thought i had cpm whcih is central pontine myelinolysis. i have had 4 diagnois and 2 day i have cda and 2 day i have cpm. it is progressing negatively, havig lost the abiliy to read because of the nystagmus which is inherent with both. thank you for your informative e maill and i will look up the opca awareness. i already have linked up with the national ataxia foundation.  lee51

I had a stroke that involved the cerebellum and had ataxia from it.  One of the best things you can do is try to keep your core and leg muscles strong.

I wish you the best!
