Hi, sorry it's a long message. My husband was dx in October he had the eye exam, and saw the neurologist both agreed that he had psp. Since then he has lost the ability to walk without a walker or he falls. I wanted to ask is it normal to loose muscle in arms and legs? My love has fallen at least 2 times a month if not more, he has gotten weaker, he uses a walker. When trying to get up out of the chair or bed he struggles. Then when he does get up he is dragging his right leg. Its hard for him to step up on the stairs to come into the house. Should I have him doing some type of excise, I'm afraid that if I do he will get hurt?
He uses a spoon to eat because he can't use a knife or fork anymore. He sleeps until 1-2 pm and goes to bed by 9-10 pm. All he does is watch tv all day, yes I am still working because I can't afford to retire. I do have someone coming in 3 days aweek. One of our daughters stays with him on Mondays.
Thanks for your help, and sorry if I ask to many questions.
