World MSA Day

Today is World MSA Day, and to recognise this I am going to post some facts about Multiple System Atrophy (MSA).
MSA affects many parts of the brain. This means that it gets worse and worse, affecting more and more parts of the body. The symptoms become visible in adulthood. MSA can provoke Positional Tremors - tremors that only occur in certain positions - and Parkinsonism.
Parkinsonism, a group of symptoms most common in the Parkinsons Disease, includes stiffness, tremors and unbalanced motion.
At the moment there is no way of stopping or slowing the disease's spread. It will gradually spread through the brain, therefore restricting and immobilising more and more parts of the body.
