More constant: With msa, which has similarities to parkinson's but may be considered more severe, usually once a symptom shows up, it sticks around. People with msa show faster progression of symptoms and life span tends to be lower than that of parkinson's. Initial symptoms include slowness in the initiation of movement, problems with balance, and genitourinary problems. These do not typically improve.
