Hey everybody. So, I was diagnosed with FA about 8 years ago, when I was 16. I know my condition is untreatable, but I feel like I should maybe be talking to a docor about it anyway? I don’t know. I was doing a natural history study for a while, but I dropped out a few years ago, and haven’t really engaged with the medical system since then. I recently did some googling and found a hospital with an “ataxia unit” in my area. I tried calling them, but they want a referral from a PCP, which I don’t have, and I’m not sure how I’d even find one who wouldn’t be put off by the rare disease thing. So it seems like it might not be worth it if they’re just going to tell me that my condition is untreatable and there’s nothing I can do.
