  1. Thanks. I just sent off for my Military Personell file and medical records. They say the defect was more than likely from birth but there was no mention of a heart murmur when I enlisted. I am searching through the forums now.
  2. Hello, served in Marine Corp from 1981 through 1992. Was pretty healthy during my time in. During Desert Storm my back went out I was taken to a field hospital overnight, given meds, and returned to my unit. After returning home I had two TIA mini strokes. Sent to naval hospital for test where it was determined I had a bi cuspid aortic valve. Basically a heart defect. After discharge I hired on with a government agency. Spent twenty years with them and retired due to medical issues. During this time I developed hypertension, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, sleep apnea, fatigue, joint pain, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, Degenerative disk disease, herniated disk, which I have surgery scheduled for on April 1. Do these sound like they could be service related? I recently found out about Gulf War Illness and am going in to get the exam. I have never dealt with the VA because I figured I was healthy when I got out so they would say not service related. Thanks
