In June of this year, I flew to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota … yes during COVID 19, had multiple tests and etc. with my care team and Neurologist, only to be told to go home they couldn't find anything medically wrong me, this doesn't sound like Mayo. Now they want me to return, I suppose they needed more than 4 days and multiple tests with me. In the meantime, I've seen several neurologists and primary care in my state. No one seems to know what my problem is. For several months my gait and balance have been off, I look like I'm drunk when I walk. My left leg and side are weak, I've fallen several times just trying to turn around or back up. I'm extremely fatigued. Larry holds my hand when I walk. I have degenerative scoliosis but have been told (by Mayo) this isn't the reason for my issues. I'm old but this should not be part of aging. I take no medications, My question to the group: does it sound like Ataxia? Should I bite the bullet and return to Mayo?
