Could these symptoms be related?  Joint pain/ inflammation, fatigue, postural hypotension, dry mouth, poor memory/'fog', arm/hand twitches, clumsiness

Possibly: It is possible that you may have one single condition, although it would seem more likely to be a number of conditions that may be contributing.

Would Multiple System atrophy cause dizzy, tach up to 180bpm, shaky, memory issues, vision problems, twitching,, headaches, high epinephrine...?

Would Multiple System atrophy cause dizzy, tach up to 180bpm, shaky, memory issues, vision problems, twitching,, headaches, high epinephrine...?

MSA will cause more disruption of a dramatic nature with blood pressure but not escalate heart rate to those extremes. ...Read more
