Is it worth doing a genetic test when there is no known cure?

I agree Julie, this is a great topic to debate, as we all have our own opinions, as well as our own ataxia and reasons for feeling the way we do! This is a forum for discussion. And Akita, I for one would like to hear what you have to say, even if I don't agree, as who am I to judge! And Lori, I think you made some very valid need to apologize!!!
