The problem with E is twofold. The major one is the shift of the time marker of the verb tense. Actually the lack of symptom is the earlier one and hence has to be described in past perfect as - had not experienced-. The second symptom, namely the facial paralysis, was set on much later in the early stages of the actual disease, much after his adulthood, and hence we need to use a simple past tense.
The second minor problem as I see, is the use of - since - to mean because, which is not desirable according to GMAT. So E is inferior.

(A)Because he had not experienced any symptoms until adulthood and was affected by facial paralysis early on in the course of his illness ---- The correct choice

(B)Since he has experienced his symptoms in adulthood and has been affected by facial paralysis early on in the course of his illness--- Roosevelt is no more. We cannot use present perfect tense

(C)Early on in the course of his illness he experienced facial paralysis and having not experienced any symptoms until adulthood—the problem may be with meaning. There is no causal connection between the lack of symptoms until adulthood and correlating this fact with the GBS symptoms, with a proper connector such as because.


(D)Because he had not experienced any symptoms until adulthood, he had been affected by facial paralysis early on in the course of his illness---This gives a wrong picture that because of lack of earlier symptoms, he experienced the later problems.

(E)Since he did not experience any symptoms until adulthood and had been affected by facial paralysis early on in the course of his illness --- as already explained.
