However, symptoms worsen over time and may involve impaired balance, speech problems (softened voice, slurred speech), swallowing problems, bowel and bladder problems, difficulties at night (discomfort in bed, cramps, disturbed sleep pattern) and tiredness during the day.

Parkinson's disease & Mimics
Parkinson disease is a complex progressive neurological disease involving the loss of neurons in a part of the brain called the “substantia nigra.”
This results in a reduction in the amount of dopamine, a chemical messenger or neurotransmitter.
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.
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.
