Neuro Update

He's not certain that it's F.A.; said that she in fact does have some of the symptoms, but not all. It's a good thought so he's going to have a full Ataxia Panel run. He couldn't figure out how to order it on the lab slip so is calling us back. He said that it used to have to be sent to Houston, but now Emory could do it. We should hear back from him in 24 hours to schedule the blood draw.

Depending on what this says, he wants to do the nerve test under sedation.

She does have nystagmus, but he said some people just have them and gave us names of a few pediatric opthalmologists to see.

We feel a bit better since he doesn't think the F.A. diagnosis is glaring, but any form of genetic ataxia is progressive. I'm just hoping that it's not as bad as the F.A.
