Hi. My mum is showing signs of possible PSP but the doctors are not sure if it is.
MRI and CAT scans clear. Symptoms are : slow speech and trouble finding words (only at times). Slightly unsteady on feet (had a few falls, one in which she broke her neck!) Eye lids seem to have been affected. No other symptoms really. Slightly forgetful but not excessively for age.
She's not herself basically, but is totally aware of what's going on. She is a young 67. Has retired fairly recently from a very demanding job. Docs have ruled out Parkinsons I think. PSP has been referenced but no suggestions it is as such. Docs said it was a very interesting case apparently. (quite horrible to hear them say it like that) .
Anyone else going through this? Has anyone had a PSP diagnosis but found out it was incorrect?
Finding this so difficult to deal with.
