    Hello Nicola (just found that on your other post!) @wheelybabe and a warm welcome to the community. Good to have you with us, but sorry to learn of your situation. I hope we can be of use to you :smile:
    Friedreich's Ataxia was a new one on me so I just looked it up in hopes of pointing you in the best direction. It appears to be a rare, neurological condition? 
    If you'd like to be in contact with others who have similar conditions, we have a forum/category for 'Undiagnosed and rare conditions', and another for 'Neurological conditions', either of which might be of interest to you and worth a look.
    If that isn't particularly what you're looking for, don't hesitate to tell us anything, or ask us any questions, that may help us to help you.
    Lovely to meet you,
    Warmest best wishes,
