Poor body coordination can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'very serious'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

|Guillain-Barre Syndrome||3%||Ruled out|
|Mercury Toxicity||1%||Ruled out|
|Multiple Sclerosis||1%||Ruled out|
