For your information

Not sure if this has been mentioned before so I am throwing it out there.
The symptom ataxia (small letter a) while disease Ataxia (capital A) is how you differentiate.

:thinking: Ataxia is a term for a group of disorders that affect co-ordination, balance and speech. Any part of the body can be affected, but people with ataxia often have difficulties with: balance and walking. › conditions › ataxia
The disease ataxia is generally accompanied by a description, for example…SCA/Idiopathic/Late onset etc. depending on what has contributed to symptoms.

I’m a small “a” with an “A” diagnosis. From your earlier question, I’m an “in”. PT,s have advised that I exercise standing only but down is better. Lastly, years ago I referred to the right side of my body as my Ataxia side. So, I am an “a”, “in”,”down”,and “right” ataxian.
These qualifiers are accurate but useless.
