In brief: Depends

It's never normal to have ataxia.
There are many causes including alcohol abuse, stroke, tumor, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, genetic problems... Treatment depends on the cause. If you have ataxia, you need to see your doctor very soon to have it evaluated. Don't play around when it comes to the nervous system. Take care.
