Review for Multiple System Atrophy Coalition, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Back in 2011 my partner Dale started having vague health issues nothing that we could put our finger on and it was put down to stress by us and our GP. 2.5 years ago Dale was under enormous stress and I noticed that he was walking into walls and his speech was slurred. This lead to our GP ordering an MRI and this showed that Dale's cerebellum had shrunk and Dale's neurologist said that Dale more than likely had Degenerative Cerebellum. Last year Dale's health deteriorated and after his GP checking him and after seeing 2 neurologists for their opinions in Feb this year he was diagnosed with MSA-C. Even though we are only at the beginning of this MSA journey and at times struggling to take it all in and dealing with day to day life and its many challenges this website has been a great source of information and comfort. We live in Tasmania Australia and we feel surrounded by love and support right around the world.
