PLS Question

Are there any members of the Regiment who have been diagnosed with Primary Lateral Sclerosis or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis? I have been diagnosed with PLS. I've read there is an unexplainable number of Veterans currently being diagnosed with these MNDs over the general population (those who didn't serve.) The VA now recognizes PLS, being that it is considered a rare form of ALS. I've done the civilian route for 3.5 years now. I haven't filed my claim with the VA yet. I'm hoping the VA will accept the diagnosis of my civilian Neurologists. My question is... has anybody service connected PLS or ALS with just their civilian doctors diagnosis? Did the VA require you see their "medicate don't compensate" doctors also?
