Anyone with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia?

Hi, I just wondered if anyone suffers from late onset Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia? My husband was fit and well until age 55 when he suddenly developed drop foot and other problems with walking. Our local hospital could find nothing wrong 🙄. So we got a second opinion at another hospital where they actually looked at his MRI scan and told him he had the spinal cord of an 80 year old. He was diagnosed after many tests with HSP although they still have not been able to determine which gene is involved. It now affects both legs, one arm and both eyes.

Thanks for reading. 👍
