Bulging eyes

Recommended Posts

Thanks, genden.  Dr Google says bulging eyes can be PD or MSA.(and Graves diaease.)  I am curious which stage it usually occurs.

DH has had two docs confirm he has PD likely to be caused by Agent Orange, an herbicide used in Vietnam.  Our neuro is suggesting DH has MSA..Multiple Systems Atrophy.....or PD+.  DH has eyes like Robert Mitchum...eyelids drroop...so I am positive his eyes are bulging.....and he stares. He does not do it often...mostly when he is tired....and when his voice gets very soft.  He is advancing very quickly.

DH has multiple neuropathy bilateral..which..according to our neuro is very atypical of PD.  Also has neg DaT scan.  So with the dx of MSA, the rules have changed.  Based on DH history and symptoms I understand  dr's opinion.

Any CG's out there who have dealt with MSA...or PD+ ? MSA is rare...but not as rare as two people having PD + and/or MSA living in the same home!  We must be special. ? Any help is welcome.

NN,

My wife's eyes seemed to glow like the aliens on Stargate when her Mirapex was at its peak effect. She is no longer on it and her eyes don't glow now.

Thanks Coach.  I have not seen a reference to bulging eyes on the forum.  Wondering if it is MSA related more than PD.  Looking for info from anyone who knows.
