Below is my list of illness since 2000. Some of which were diagnosed then subsequently deemed a misdiagnosis which was then referred to as part of a combination of conditions related auto immune system disease.
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Crohn’s disease
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Plaque psoriasis
- Restless legs syndrome
- Vasculitive Colitis (2 links)
- Wegener’s granulomatosis
I have been told I have never been text book in my symptoms for these various conditions but have shown some or all symptoms at various stages in the past 17 years which can flare up at any stage.
I have also failed on all current immunosuppressive drugs except for the latest injection I am receiving but only time will tell if this will last
Former member of No3 Support Wing
Prior to joining the Irish Army Air Corps this person was an accomplished athlete and represented the Defence Forces and his unit at many running competitions. The above illnesses started to occur approximately 1 year after joining Heli Wing.
Furthermore and as has happened in other cases this person was treated as a malingerer and actively haunted by Air Corps management until he went on his ticket. Essentially he was constructively dismissed by the Irish Army Air Corps after they had made him seriously ill.
