There is a suspected link between ALS and military service although much is still unknown. If you have served in the military and diagnosed with ALS what have the doctors shared with you? Do they have any theories on the relationship? What are your thoughts?
I’m a ALS newby and have not had any conversations with my neurologist about the correlation to service. I’m curious what data the VA has collected if it shows anything relevant based on MOS, duty station, etc.
