Question Multiple Systems Atrophy

I don't know whether I'm posting this in the right section or not!?

My cousin has MSA (she is 65) At first she was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease about 2 years ago, but her symptoms rapidly got worse & recently they changed the diagnosis to MSA. It's apparently very rare & though some of the symptoms can be helped to some extent, there isn't a lot they can do for her in the long term.

I just wondered if anyone can give me any insight into this horrible disease? She is about to go into full time care because she now needs assistance with most basic things.

Thankyou for any input!
