What Are the Early Symptoms of PSP?
The beginning stages of PSP include the inability to walk, falling spells, and stiffness. Falls experienced by a PSP patient are often described as having a state of dizziness, prior to actually falling. This dizziness description is sometimes misdiagnosed as an inner ear problem or a hardening of the arteries that are blocking blood flow to the brain.
Other common symptoms of PSP include:
Change in personality
Loss of interest in usual socializing with family and friends
