Episode 21: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) are especially common conditions among veterans compared to the general population.
MS is a disease of the central nervous system in which your immune system attacks the protective myelin sheath that covers nerve fibers, interfering with the transmission of nerve signals between the brains, spinal cord, and the rest of the body.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that destroys nerve cells and causes disability. As the disease advances and nerve cells are destroyed, your muscles progressively weaken. This episode discusses each condition in further detail, outlining how veterans can build a compelling VA claim for each condition.
