My husband has been diagnosed with PSP/MSA/Lewey bodies dementia with Parkinson's, yet although his symptoms match some of these he does not fit exactly into any. I think it is because the symptoms are similar and overlap that the doctors/neurologists cannot be certain.

We are awaiting the results of a second MRI scan in 16 months but I am not expecting anything new.

Well done you for managing Type 1 diabetes for so long, my husband has been Type 2 for 20 years and has not always managed as well as he does now - because I make sure he has his medication regularly !

Keep trying any therapies etc that you think may help. We have not ruled out trying anything !

My brother has MSA and Amantadine seems to help him the most. We are also trying certain supplements such as cinnamon and coconut oil as well as A&D ointment for skin issues.

Keep an open mind and try anything you feel will help!

Never neared of A& D oil

We're in the U.S. - it's a vitamin A and D skin cream (several brands and available online) and it has helped him tremendously.
