My sister, 57, is recently diagnosed with PSP. She was showing signs and symtopms since almost two years. At the same time she was going through some family issues so her initial symptoms were taken as depression by the doctors. She was treated for depression until recently when a neurologist confirmed the diagnoses. It is devastating. Her memory is fine. She speaks softly and tends to repeat. She randomly falls. Her gait is unusual and she cannot maintain balance. Her neck is stiff and her gaze is fixed. but she can move her eyes and neck on instructions. Her memory is fine and she can talk about just anything.
What stage of PSP is this? Does anyone know of any alternative treatment that can help slow down the progression?
I will appreciate any answer.
