Francesca- and Fiona

My two year old IG, Francesca, is exhibiting some weird problems in the last month. It first started with some head shaking/tremors/shivers. Now, she appears to be afraid to go up the stairs and seems to lose her balance when trying to jump up on the bed or sofa - things she has never before had problems with. We went to the vet today and they are doing some blood work but no answers as of yet. I did some research on various sites and came up with 5 possibilities, although the symptoms don't exactly match any of the problems. Has anyone else seen any shaking/loss of balance problems in their IGs? Thanks in advance for any help for my girl.
