Did anybody hear about this? What kind of symptoms can it cause?
Can it cause headaches, neck pains and mood changes, lightheadness and dizziness?

  • Atrophy of the spinocerebellum (or vermis) causes disturbances in gait and limb movement. Spinocerebellum lesions can be identified by arm tremors and disruption in complex reflexes. While headaches can accompany any brain damage, these are the most defining symptoms.

Please help me.Can you e-mail me? my mail is anetamk88@yahoo.comI have vermis atrophy and ventriculoomegaly. The neurologist told me that he could do nothing for me and I would get worse. I am going for a second opinion. Really did not care for the neurologist and the way he dismissed me. He did not want to get another CT scan.
