Hello,
 
I've just discovered I have ataxia.  I have no balance and right are is uncontrollably shaky.  For others with similar symptoms are there any medications that can assist with these symptoms.  Thanks.

Hey Thimp

Welcome to the board! I'm so sorry to see u'r having these probs, but glad u'r here asking questions. Have u been dx'd with ms or any other neurological problem?? If not, and if u've not seen a neuro with this, that's u'r best next step. A neurologist would best suited to give info on meds avail to help. I did a bit of researching on this symptom and found the following links. Maybe they'll be helpful. As u'll see, there are MANY causes for ataxia. Likewise, the underlying cause of the ataxia is usually what is treated rather than the ataxia it'self. Do u have any other symptoms?? How long has this been happening? Please let us know more about u'rself and how u'r doing. I sincerely hope u'll be in touch with a neurologist if u haven't already. All the good advice is helpful, but can't replace a doctor's help.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, have been diagnosed and have a neurologist. Gave me something for the shakes and they don't work that great. I have bad ballance, shakiness, fatigue, and awful memory. But I believe that comes with this diease....
