In brief: Comments

A common cause of cerebellar vermin atrophy is history of alcohol nutritional occurrence, and this variety might respond to thiamine 50-100 mg daily.
Your imbalance is likely secondary to this. Connective tissue disease may be an underlying cause, but this will require further investigation to pin down. Physical therapy gait training may well help your unsteadiness. Ankle weights often aide.
