Hi Anon!

Thank you for your post!

For the benefit of our readers, Acute cerebellar ataxia is a disorder of the nervous system marked by the sudden onset of a disturbance in muscle coordination, especially in the trunk, arms, and legs.

The cerebellum is the part of the brain that controls balance and coordination. It does not function properly in the case of cerebellar ataxia. Although the abnormality of the limbs is most often noticed, it can also cause abnormal eye movements. Nausea and vomiting may also occur as part of the disorder.

This condition is seen more in children - do you have a child with this? It is usually caused by a virus and the good news is that it general goes away within a few months (when viral). But there are other causes too, like bacterial infections (Lyme Disease is an example) or by a head injury.

The cause of ACA may determine the recovery. Do you know how ACA was acquired?

We hope to hear back from you!
