14 Warning Signs and Symptoms of Brain Tumor

3. Ataxia


It is a very wide term that includes loss of coordination in the muscles of the body or a given region of the body. This loss of coordination may result in difficulty to grasp, walk, speak, and even move our eyes. It is more likely caused by an insult to the cerebellum, the center of the brain that brings together muscle function to create coordinate and precise movements. This center is important for equilibrium and posture, which is why ataxia is often accompanied with gait disturbances.
