This answer was rated:

I am 61, female, and have had ataxia of speech for 10 yrs. Last fall, I was diagnosed with Fahr's disease or syndrome. That is the only symptom I have. Am I more likely to get the motor issues or the cognitive? I don't expect you to know what Fahr's is, but you can google it. Paula

Fahrs syndrome is very rare condition.
In this calcium is deposited abnormally in brain ,and so according to area involved you will get the symptoms.

If motor area is involved then you will have motor issues.

The involvement cannot be predicted you may have other problems or maynot in future.
