Re: diagnsed with ms after 7 years

Sorry so late responding, I don't check here very often. I believe you hav to show that you had MS symptoms within 7yrs of getting out, since it can take such a long time to get diagnosed. Do you have a copy of your medical records? If so, go over with a fine tooth comb to check for anything that wo...

I am a veteran as well. I was just diagnosed Nov 09, after about 7 years of issues. I am still waiting to hear from the VA about adding this to my disability. I wonder if all the shots have anything to do with this ???

I had symptoms while in, but you know some military docs :) I have sent in my documents and am awaiting word. I am already 80% with the VA with other issues that my Neu...
