Thank you for writing.

MSA (multi-system atrophy) is a degenerative disease of the brain characterized by imbalance while walking, slowness of movements, difficulty in speaking and swallowing. It tends to get worse with time and unfortunately, there is no cure for it.
Regarding todays' fall and unconsciouness, it could be unrelated. Please show her to a neurologist/neurosurgeon and get a scan done to exclude a brain hemorrhage (bleeding in brain).
