    Hello

    Hi, my name is George I have progressive spinal atrophy since 1986 when I was first diagnosed I'm now 73 and have now lost the use of my left arm and hand and very limited use in the right hand and arm and have to use a wheelchair to get around , I do know how lucky I am compared to a lot of others .
    Any way I hope to be able to add something to the community

              Welcome george1948 - looking forward to hearing more from you x
              Diagnosis confirmed Jan 2022 (age 46) after several years ignored/ misdiagnosed.

              Symptoms began in left foot 2017. Now mainly left side, speech and some loss on right side too.

              Unable to walk unaided (powerchair user), poor speech, left hand behaves like a drunk toddler but generally positive and determined.
