ataxic CP

I love reading everyones post and all discussions. I have noticed most of the people I've seen so far have degree of a spastic form of CP. I was wondering if there is any one out there with an ataxic form(poor balance and muscle coordination)?

My legs and hips have been hurting lately when I use them for any length of time, sometimes just standing. Can't figure out why ,but their worse when I lay down. I was wondering if it was cause of my weird gait? Anyone else experiencing anything like this? Any feedback on this?

Vicki I fall a lot cause of my balance and also more recently my v.i. At the first garden center/landscape service co. I worked at I was known as the Fall Guy I fell so often.

When yoiur young their easy to bonce back from but as you get older falls can hurt and harder to recover from.

Jennie10, I do the pt exercises but I have to agree they don't help totally although I think without them the legs and hips would be worse. The last coupler nights I took Alieve just before bed and the pain was little all night.
