Very different: Friedrich's ataxia is an inherited autosomal recessive progressive disorder associated with loss of balance, incoordination, usually starting in childhood. High foot arches, scoliosis, cardiac issues may be present. Ms is an acquired autoimmune disorder, onset late 20's, often causing relapses with visual loss, weakness, numbness, imbalance, fatigue, and cognitive issues. Ms meds help.
