I have cerebellar damage caused by radiation exposure when I was eleven. As a result, I walk like a drunk, and feel really light-headed. I have been told that this is typical for folks with cerebellar damage. My peripheral neuropathy is caused by the deterioration of spinal structures caused by Marfan Syndrome and osteoporosis, leading to pinched and irritated peripheral nerves. I am grateful that I have not yet experienced the disabling pain described by so many here. However, just about everything below my waist feels numb; occasionally I must deal with sciatica, and my feet have that "pins and needles feeling" constantly. Am I the only one here with brain damage? Am I the only one here with Marfan Syndrome? I wish I couldd be of more service to our other members.
