Unstableness (Balance)

I have been diagnosed with Cerebellar Atrophy (which affects my balance and coordination). I fall off ladders with no provocation, can't ride a bicycle, Just fall over sometimes when I'm on my haunches close to the ground. Im also uncoordinated a lot of times, and get dizzy alot Dr. says there is nothing that can be done about it. Is there anything I can try to help reduce those symptoms? Anything natural? (or unnatural <smile>)

Re: Unstableness (Balance)

Hi BobDadBear,
It has been quite a while since I have been on here. I read your post and was interested to know if you have had your B12 levels checked. Getting my B12 level up made a huge difference in my steadiness in walking. I was in the "normal" range at the low end. If your number is under 400 you may benefit from taking Jarrow Formulas Methyl B12. I take 5,000 mcg each day. Please get it checked. Please get the specific number. Please take action to get it the number up if it is under 500.

1rose

VRT can help with some central causes of imbalance. It certainly couldnt hurt, so its worth a try.
