  1. I think it depends on VAMC you are working with. My wife gets paid monthly for my bowel and bladder care. If your VAMC has a separate program like ours you could get help then, good luck!
  2. Well I am a R1 veteran, my rating was given to me by a VA rater. I wrote to the va secretary and was called by the rater and he determined at te time I should be rated at the R1 level. I have loss of use of my lower extremities which was at 100% and then I was given a suprapubic cathator which is another 100% rating. So thats how I was put in the r1 rating. I can only guess that an r1 exam would include both physical and regular questions for you unless you have any qualifying conditions already in your medical records. Good luck!
  3. Hi Jefmil50,

    Welcome to this club and thank you for joining!

    The Lidwina incident is very interesting and it was so long ago.

    I have read in various publications that Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is considered a "mystery disease" and I would have to agree.  No one knows what causes it and no one has a cure.  Many theories out there and many alleged "cures".  Very interesting to say the least.

    Wow, I am happy you joined the club, thank you again!  😀


  4. I just read part of her story, very interesting. Can you imagine how far we would be on M.S. if they had what we have now. I finally came down to the bottom of this forum to see this M.S. part.
  5. Congratulations a wonderful and deserved win!
  6. Congratulations, Merry Christmas just north of you!
  7. I was given the diagnosis of ms in 1990 and it was presumptive, I was given an mri that showed mine. How were you diagnosed with ms? And the big question is when did you get discharged from the military? Like they have said so long as your diagnosis is within that 7 year time frame then ypou can get service connected for your ms. I know the minimum for ms is 30%. I just went to an R1 rating this year, hopefully you .will not get that high too soon. Good luck with your claim
  8. Congratulations on your big win!
