I am in the Army NG and was mobilizing in May 2013 for a deployment to Afghanistan. I was commanding a unit and was medically released from active duty (REFRAD) and had to watch my unit fly out without me. Without getting into too much detail, I was healthy, moving around just fine and than one day after intense training something popped in my neck. After that, I woke up my wrist swelled up and than a few days later I couldn't put pressure on my feet. Dx of Carpal Tunnel syndrome lol...I had no KNOWN knowledge of my spinal condition, and was later dx with RA/Undifferentiated sero-negative arthropathy (BY the ARMY on Title 10 orders). Fast forward 2 years later, I had MRI's done on my neck which the Army failed to check even though it was my chief complaint (other than the fact that I could not walk). 3 Bulging Disks and significant degeneration of my spine. I understand some is genetics, but with no known history of this condition, it appears the VA should receive my claim as injuries aggravated/exacerbated through Military service. Do you know how I should file this claim? I have all of my medical records. C-Spine injury, Wrist Injury, Aggravated AS, Feet. I have not been the same, and am getting worse.
