I was diagnosed with gluten ataxia last November. I spent 11 months with terrible jerking and shaking. My walking got so bad I had to use a cane on good days. At first, it would come and go. But by July of 2003, it came and never left. The 4th. neurologist I saw did the blood workup for gluten antibodies. It came back "weak" positive and she told me to not bother with the diet. I did some research and decided I had nothing to lose by trying the diet. After 4 weeks, I was a new person. I have been religious about keeping gluten out of my diet and have been doing very good. I did just have a little relapse but am getting over it fast. I wonder where we can find out more info on gluten ataxia.
