My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Systems Atrophy, Parkinson's Type, MSA-P, after 9 years of a Parkinson's diagnosis. There is not much out there about this diagnosis. Thank you for your help.
Being each person who has this will be different in how their symptoms are. I can tell you that I have trouble with the following....light headedness, eye troubles, balance issues cramping in my right hand, walking any length of distance (without breaks), and dysautonomia. Yep life is beautiful. I have adjusted my life around it but there is always a bright side.

Thank you. My husband's predominant issue is that the eyelids clench shut and to open them he has to manually lift the eyelid.This is part of the malfunction of the autonomic systems. He has been through 2 surgeries and takes injections every 6 weeks now, but it is still a difficult issue to overcome. Thank you for your positive outlook! It is refreshing!
My husband has alternating cold/hot sensations and nothing helps. It drives us both crazy. Anyone else have such symptoms?
