G60.2: Neuropathy in association with hereditary ataxia

You have a disorder of the cerebellum and the nerves.

The cerebellum is part of the brain. The cerebellum is important for movement and balance. The cerebellum stores movement processes, for example, how one eats with cutlery or rides a bike.

Nerves are a sort of wiring in the body. Nerves conduct information. The nerves use electrical impulses to do this. Nerves are important, for instance, in enabling you to sense contacts and temperatures, and to move your muscles.

This condition affects the cerebellum, for example. As a result, you may no longer be able to control or carry out mobility processes. You may then be unable to walk, grip things or speak, for example. Your disorder is also affecting nerves that serve the arms and legs. This can weaken the muscles, for example. The skin may also feel numb, tingly or sore.

Your disorder is hereditary. Other family members may also be affected.
