My symptoms became problematic in October 2014 and progressed rapidly.
Sorry to hear that. I just went to the VA Hospital and did the Gulf War "Phase I" exam; which is supposed to cover Iraq Burn Pits. It was a lab and exam from a PA as a data gathering exercise. They have linked Agent Orange to PD in 91-92, so I am glad to help link it to other toxic exposures. I can participate in Phase II next year.
Meanwhile, I am going to see a Neuro at the same hospital tomorrow. So, things are moving along.
My symptoms started in 2010 for sure, but I wonder about a couple of things even earlier on. I am only beginning my treatment since June. Things got pretty bad pretty fast this year. My reaction to PT and meds is very positive, so I am fortunate.
Diagnosed May 7th 2015 - at 43 yrs old, just before my birthday
Mainly left side issues
Fused spine L4-5, C5-7
