    A UK study found no link between specific conflicts or length of service in the increased MND for military personnel. It did find a greater association of trauma associated with veterans with MND v non-veterans, and noted higher smoking rates in veterans - smoking is a known risk in developing MND.

    Hi Dennis

    Thanks for reply ,why do you think it increases our chances off mnd , is it the inviroments that we serve in , or the amount of pre-deployment inoculations that we have to have ,all administered in one go ,or could it be the likes of naps (nerve agent tablets) ,who knows .

    Cae1977 , carrying arms for your country statically elevates your risk of ALS /MND. There are a few of us that have and this illness is far worse and more relentless than any contact...

    All the best,
    Dennis

    Great new, Craig, thrilled your EMG was normal.

    You can get on with life now and put thoughts of MND out of your mind.

    I wish you happiness and health.

    Love Ellie.

    All the best for tomorrow Craig,

    I hope you get the results soon and they give you peace of mind. I have had 3 EMGs and NCTs. I am not the bravest and although its not my favourite way of spending a day its not painful. Any discomfort is very brief.

    Take Care and keep us informed,
    Love Debbie x

    I've had EMG and nerve-conduction tests three times in the last year. It's unpleasant but nothing to worry about. Not as bad as the hygienist.
