Yes: There are progressive degenerative diseases of the cerebellum or those tracts from the cerebellum which can cause loss of coordination. There are also other causes such as tumor, trauma, infection, and others. A neurologist can help you sort these out.

A reason 2 see a Dr: I don't mean to be trite, but your symptoms sound significant enough that you should see a doctor. Loss of coordination could be due to some type of neurologic problem.
