Hi all. My father was initially diagnosed with vertigo! He pushed for more tests as wanted answers to why he needed to walk with a stick. He was then diagnosed with Cerebellar Ataxia but a short time passed and he was diagnosed with MSA. The last 18mths have been the most difficult and his deterioration was very rapid & noticeable. After a long struggle we finally got him noticed by his GP & the NHS!
On New Year's day we went around to Mum and Dads for a light buffet, photos & make memories. Dad seemed happy to see us but struggled to communicate and was tired.
1 week later on 8th Jan he died peacefully at home. We are relieved for him as he no longer has to struggle but I miss him very much 😢
I too am on here to try and understand but also to try and spread the word about MSA and to support people going through similar. Love to all
