    I read the entire blog. Thanks you for providing it. My wife was diagnosed witht PD in Oct ’08, but it soome became apparent it was something else. Eventtually it was decided she had MSA. She must use a 4-wheel walker, or she falls. She has had a few swallowing episodes (of which I’m aware) a,d is starting to have some congintive issues as well. She is now 54, and I am not sure what to expect as everyone progresses differently, but her symptoms seem to be coming more rapidly as of late.

    I feel so bad for her — no one should have to suffer in this manner.

    Hi Leonard

    You are so right – no-one should have to suffer in this manner.

    Yes – everyone progresses differently, but sadly, not so differently. It basically come down to which form of MSA your wife has. I suspect you are in America – Ohio perhaps – have you contacted the Shy Drager support group there – http://groups.yahoo.com/group/shydrager – they are very supportive and have a wealth of information.

    Feel free to continue to email here if it helps.

    Regards
    JC
