My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 3 yrs. ago & now Docs have diagnosed him with MSA - Multiple System Atrophy not Alzheimer's. In a matter of 2 1/2 wks. he has declined from walking w/ assistance & mild confusion to being bedridden & unresponsive. He & my step-mother live in Ft. Lauderdale while I'm in Ohio. As of this morning, he's being admitted to a hospital as his Doc believes he's suffered a vascular event or a severe drug interaction. The heartbreaking part is that they are saying regardless of what they find the condition he's in is most likely going to be permanent. Does anyone have experience with MSA or know anything about the symptoms I mentioned above?
