dysmetria is not a condition but a manifestation of an underlying problem.
do you have a diagnosis of an underlying problem?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Not as of yet. My cerebellum has shrunk.
Expert:  CaliforniaMD replied 5 years ago.
1- do you drink alcohol or have in the past? if so, how much?
2- do you have any balance problems?
3- problems with eye movements that you noticed or your neurologist noticed?
4- any tremor?
5- difficulty swallowing or speaking?
6- anyone in the family with similar symptoms?

1 Vodka Tonic every 3 days or so. This was due to a brain injury (the CT scan shows that my Cerebellum is smaller). I'm dysarthric, dealing with my walking and balance with physical therapy. There is some tremor and I hit myself in the face when pulling up my covers. No one in my family has similar symptoms.

the only treatment for cerebellar dysmetria that could help you is occupational therapy.
OT focuses on daily tasks and activities necessary for normal functioning. i know you tried it, but i would continue it and perhaps try a different therapist.
