    I would like to hear from anyone who is suffering from MSA-C. My husband 73 has been diagnosed with this recently. His signs were drunk walking gate at night all the time now, coughing when eating food , sleep problems, bad restless legs in bed at night. Just recently he has had a fainting spell after getting out of a chair too quickly and walked away and down he went.
    He has been going to a physiotherapist for his balance issues and with a set of daily exercises this has helped a great deal. More confident walking .I am about to make an appointment to see a Speech Pathologist re his coughing ,as we have just discovered that swallowing problems is part of this MSA issue.
    I would be interested if anyone has tried acupuncture or natural therapy’s that have helped. Regards,
    Barbara

    Hi,

    I have MSA-C, but have not tried acupuncture or natural medicine. Some people get pain relief with acupuncture; but nothing has been proven to help stop or reverse MSA. Best wishes.
