My husband, Alan, 63, and I live in East Texas. He has been diagnosed with probable MSA-C. He uses a walker to move around--can't move around on his own. His speech and fine motor skills are affected somewhat, too. His noticeable symptoms began 3-4 years ago. He was on some Parkinsons meds for a while but is gradually going off those because they had no positive effects. His doctors are at the MSA unit at UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. We are taking this journey one day at a time and trying to be positive.
