Hi, The mechanisms underlying disorders with cerebellar ataxia as a symptom reflect the diversity of etiologies that have been identified. For instance, genetic mutations affecting ion channel structure and function cause both intermittent and chronic symptoms, and recessively inherited enzymopathies (enzyme deficiency) cause symptoms through accumulation of neurotoxic storage material and/or precursor metabolites.
Kindly consult Neurologist....
