Very Soon, I Should Know If It Is Ms I Suffer From

Question

Very soon, I should know if it is MS I suffer from. In the coming few days or maybe a couple of weeks, I should find out from my neurologist doctor if it is (Multiple sclerosis) MS that I have been suffering from. I had a new MRI of the brain today. I Had a brain mri 30 years ago on active duty, because I was very sick from chemicals on active duty in the U.S.A.F.. I have had all kinds of neurological symtoms, and mostly tremors all these years, but it has been progressing, I have gone through so many symptoms that could be Parkinsons, Myotonic Dystrophy, MS,, and others.. I have had severe muscle wasting, and to go with all theat, have had myclonic seazures, body parts jerking, stumbling, unblanced, Intestinal disease, eye disease, Pancreas disease, back disease, severe headache, speech issues, and the list goes on forever... chronic pain, fibromyalgia, I take morhine daily, I have been on strong pain killing narcotics for 20 years.. I have not been able to work for 20 years.

I am only rated at 50% fpr headaches, the VA denied al the other claims 15 years ago, I put new claim in in 2009, and spending 2008 in the hsopital for 6 months, and a wheelchir for one year and learning to walk and eat again after the feeding tube was removed... I have necroctizing pancreatitis, the next infection, they have to remove my pancreas..

I have those claims in at the VA to ge the full 100% P&T, but they denied my claims , thye ignored the evoidence, and had a DRO hearing 2010, and awaiting the decsions on 6 issues.. but they just keep dealying, and I don't know how long i have to live, as the pancreas disease has no cure.. I await my decisions, My family need the benefits badly... I have even asked my congressman ot help get my claim moving.. (the VA is deny, deny, until I die)..

I hope to find out if I Have MS, because it wil help immensly for both my wel beeing and for my disability claim to get a more solid diagnosis.. I take several medcines to stop the violent jerks and tremors.. I filed for MS, in 1997, bu tthey only approve dmy claim for headaches back then.. out of all symptoms they mostly fit MS... hopefully the MS wil show what the doctors need to finally decide what I suffered from in neurological problems.. it is very scary when you lose control of your body. The doctors and nurses saw my neuro problems daily whenI was an inpatient and was unable to care fro myself for 6 months. I fought to learn to walk again, and have a lot of problems walking.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
