- Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a rare degenerative neurological disorder that affects your body’s involuntary (autonomic) functions, including blood pressure, breathing, bladder function, and motor skills.
- Formerly known as Shy-Drager syndrome, olivopontocerebellar atrophy, or striatonigral degeneration, MSA shares many of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, such as slow movements, stiff muscles, and poor balance. Shy-Drager syndrome treatment in Nizamabad
- Multiple system atrophy (MSA) affects many parts of your body. Symptoms usually develop in adulthood, usually in their 50s or 60s.
- MSA is divided into two types: Parkinson’s and cerebellum. The type will depend on the symptoms you have at the time of diagnosis.
- There is no known cause of multiple system atrophy (MSA). Some researchers are investigating a possible hereditary component or involvement of an environmental toxin in the disease process, but there is no substantial evidence to support these theories.
- MSA causes parts of your brain (cerebellum, basal ganglia, and brain stem) to deteriorate and shrink (atrophy), regulating the body’s internal functions, digestion, and motor control. Shy-Drager syndrome treatment in Nizamabad
The progression of MSA varies, but the condition does not go into remission. As the disorder progresses, daily activities become more difficult.
Possible complications are:
- Difficulty breathing while sleeping
- Fall injury due to imbalance or fainting
- Gradual immobility that can lead to secondary problems such as skin damage
- Loss of ability to take care of oneself in daily activities Shy-Drager syndrome treatment in Nizamabad
