PSP – Any Relation with GBCA in brain or with Cervical Myelopathy / Radiculopathy?

* In Nov 2020, diagnosed with a Parkinsonism suggestive of PSP - Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, with possible onset in 2018, being Freezing of Gait only on turns my complaint.
* In May 2017, severe acute pancreatitis due to medication: Started vigilance of pancreas with MRIs using Gadolinium-Based Contrast Administration (GBCA). Up to September 2019, I was submitted to SIX MRI with GBCA! I found in the Internet that Gadolinium may stay retained in the brain! May Gadolinium have any relation with my Parkinsonism?
* In November 2015, decided to be submitted to an ACDF - Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion surgery to an herniated disc C4-C5, with an area of myelomacia, without any complaints! WRONG DECISION: complaints started just after surgery, increasing up today: neck and shoulder pain, neck stiffness, tinglings in hands... May these complaints mimic my Parkinsonism?
