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
