Hi, @pattywelch. That is very interesting that your doctor is now thinking you may have progressive supranuclear palsy instead of Parkinson's.

Here is some Mayo Clinic information on this palsy, in case you've not run across this one yet: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/progressive-supranuclear-palsy/symptoms-causes/syc-20355659

I realize this is uncommon, but a couple of Connect members like @afoster80 and @jhinken have mentioned this condition, and I'm hoping they will return and join in the discussion and offer some input on what you can expect. @hopeful33250 may also have some thoughts.

What do you think made your doctor look into other potential diagnoses, @pattywelch?
