  1. I just received 80% SC for my narcolepsy. The decision took nearly a year but it was worth the wait.
  2. I was in a HMMWV accident in 1989 and sustained a "closed head injury" and "head trauma". (They did not use terms like "TBI" in those days...) I was comatose and intubated for the first day and spent several days in the hospital. I was recently diagnosed with Narcolepsy with Cataplexy, which can be caused by TBI's. Would it be possible to try to service connect Narcolepsy with such a long time gap between the initial injury and this new diagnosis? I have spent decades bouncing between doctors and specialists trying to figure out why I was so tired so I don't have a medical history specifically diagnosing Narcolepsy until 2017. I do have all my hospital records, line of duty determination documents, etc.
