My husband was diagnosed at 45 with Parkinson's, that was 4 years ago. Over the last 6 months his walking and speech has become more affected. The last 4 weeks significantly more so including problems with his bladder and constipation. Some swallowing problems but nothing major. I have read about MSA and his symptoms tick quite a few of the MSA boxes but no one was listening. We paid privately to see a neurologist (his normal NHS appointment isn't till October, the previous appointment being February) he spent an hour doing physical tests, chatting etc and said you have severe Parkinson's.
After trying to take his life 11 days ago he is now on a neurology ward and has been told it is probably MSA. He is currently on 3 days of anti sickness tablets and will then be on Apomorphine for 3 days to see whether this helps his symptoms. Has anyone else tried Apomorphine?
He has been on a number of Parkinson's medications lastly being Sinimet but nothing relieved him.
Grateful for any insights into MSA or experiences in caring for someone with it.
