My 75-year-old grandpa has been having a great deal of difficulty walking for about a month. his doctor ordered an mri of the brain, indicating ataxia as a diagnosis. i can't understand what an mri of the brain has to do with difficulties walking, and i sure don't know what ataxia is. can you fill in the blanks?
