I have posted before, my husband, Ian, 43 has been diagnosed with MSA! I am in the process of starting a Email register, I am hoping to start a web based chat room as well, this is being a bit more of a challenge, but am sure we will sort it out soon!
There are more and more people unfortunately being diagnosed with this dreadful disease, there is also becoming more support out there which is great, technology certainly helps with this…..
As many people do not like facebook we are trying to get more options for everyone out there. So please send me your details and email, phone number and what ever other info you like…. My email is Debbie.firstname.lastname@example.org
There are some truly amazing people out there and we could all benefit from the info that is popping up!

Thanks for the posts by you and all the others. We are all the same, suffering from seeing our loved one suffering from MSA. My sister is only 40 and she has just been diagnosed with MSA after many years of weird appearance. She has frequent urination, hypotension and sleep apenea. I am very very sad and really want to know what can be the best way of helping her. She lives in Adelaide but I live close to Melbourne. Do you know any places or doctors that we should go for consultation? Her blood pressure remains very low. People have also talked about the stemcell treatment. What’s your idea about all these things? We are just starting the journey and I will be alongside my sister traveling on it and really appreciate you and many others to be around us. Let’s share the experience and all win the battles.

Truly sorry to hear about your sister, We live in central queensland, so I have no idea on doctors down your way. Sorry. There Is a facebook page MSA in Australia and New Zealand there are a lot of members here in Australia. It sounds as though your sister has MSA -C. Ian has MSA -P either way its bloody horrific…. Ian is on the one minute cure and is doing better, he is also taking Himalayn rock salt daily. we are totally organic and trying very hard to follow Terry Wahl reversing MS theory:) Please feel free to contact me at any time. We will be in Melbourne for 3 days from the 3rd to 6th November if you would like to chat… Cheers DebbieOctober 19, 2014 at 7:36 pm #1325Debbie TempletonGuest
There has just been a conference in the US that I watched last night via the web cam, face book, they spoke of stem cell replacement, but very early in trials and may be years away..October 23, 2014 at 2:10 pm #1328Karen GuoGuest
Thanks for the reply. I also understand that Stem cell is an immature treatment. I may not be able to make a meeting from the 3rd to 6th Nov because i work and live in Ballarat but if you give me your mobile, i can phone for a chat.

Can you please let me know the one minute cure and how Ian is doing it? I also want my sister to try Terry Wahl reversing MS theory. Should we buy a book or learn it from a therapist?

You all seem to live in Australia, but I live in Canada. My husband has been having several issues for the last 4+ years (balance, speech, coughing, hiccups). He doesn’t have a specific diagnosis yet, but his neurologist suspects some type of spinocerebellar ataxia. I would very much appreciate having a chance to discuss with you. Can you email me?

How are you? I think you are the person who called me the other day about my sister. Hope that you are improving.
My sister is doing ok. She is trying the Chinese medical treatments which haven’t shown much help, and I’ll consult a nature therapist soon about the treatments here. She is positive that she will get better as she’s young and quite strong. She walks well although clumsy and unbalance but can manage quite a bit without assistance. The only thing that troubles us is the breathing difficulty. Recently, she started complaining about the increasing dizziness frequency.December 27, 2014 at 9:51 am #1322Georgia MartinGuest
I am 36 and relate to your sister’s symptoms. I am not diagnosed but suspect MSA. I was wondering if your sister takes anything for frequent urination as this symptom really bothers me at the moment? Also, what were her first symptoms and at what age? I fear that being so young no one will take me seriously and I have already been seeing doctors about my symptoms for a year now.
Hoping you are coping and wishing you all the best in the coming year. What a great sister you are!
