Atypical Parkinsonism

Dementech reviews

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare neurological disorder that develops in adulthood, usually in the 50s or 60s. MSA is caused by shrinking of nerve cells in several areas of the brain.

Same Day Diagnosis

At Dementech Neurosciences, we endeavour to see you on the same day, if possible. You no longer have to wait to be seen by a specialist.  With your consent, our private neurologists can also share the full consultation report with your GP.

Symptoms

MSA can result in problems with multiple bodily functions such as speech, movement, balance, blood pressure and bladder control. PSP symptoms include loss of balance, falls (often backwards), stiffness and difficulties with vision, speech and swallowing. Eye problems cause difficulty in looking up or down, focusing, double or tunnel vision and dislike of bright lights. Some people can also experience behavioural and cognitive changes including depression and apathy.

CBS causes gradually worsening difficulties with movement, speech, memory and swallowing. Some patients will experience an involuntary stiffening, twisting or contraction of the affected limb called dystonia.

There may be uncontrolled jumping of the limb when it is tapped gently or when the patient is startled, called myoclonus. People with CBS often complain that the affected limb feels like it is not a part of their body, a sensation called alien limb.
