    He should be interesting to watch as he really went for it when he drove a Clio in anger and seemed fearless behind the wheel.

    The main symptoms are:
    • muscle stiffness or floppiness
    • muscle weakness
    • random and uncontrolled body movements
    • balance and co-ordination problems
