    • My heater man is a vet and asked me where he needs to send his I-9. He deals with Buffalo like I do and does not want DRO review etc. I am 99% sure he needs to mail it to the Buffalo VARO with proof of mailing and I dont think ebenefits can accept an I-9 appeal on line. But I feel better checking with you guys. VA makes me even doubt what I think I know sometimes. I also believe he does Not need to waive further RO consideration formally. I gave him our web site info and he said he would join.
    • A thought, a few friends and family members (like 4/5) have experienced my full blown night terrors. I'd sleep over my sisters or my mom n Dad's house while on vacation and they told me the next day they heard me scream, hear me moving/jumping in bed and both my Mom n sister told me they would come in the room speak softly to me and clam me down to end my night terror and sleep at peace. Would it help if I asked them to write up a letter detailing this?  Having lived with this alone/hiding not letting it out, I've been so low in my life, I'm still in pain and have a way long way to go but the help I am receiving at the VA is heaven sent, a non-judgemental environment, with other veterans and the people there to help and veterans who listen ( Im crying now) literally are saving me from either living in purgatory or the other option- which morally and from god I am against and my daughter I know needs me
    • Sorry duplicate post.
    • I found this article on Fully developed claims and it included a checklist which is what I've been looking for.  However its on a VA website so Im skeptical of trusting what it says. Does anyone thats familiar with the FDC process see anything wrong with this article? I'm about to file my first FDC for a new condition, (meneires disease), and want to make sure this time I file a VA claim, I don't screw it up like I did my first attempt.  http://www.blogs.va.gov/VAntage/9648/get-the-fastest-claim-decision-file-a-fully-developed-claim/

Flat Feet

7 posts in this topic

I was diognosed with flat feet condition moderate to severe asymtomatic when I join the army twenty years age.

My physical before retirement states that I have severe flat feet asymtomatic.

Can this be claim?

Are you symptomatic (foot pain) now? If not (you're still asymptomatic) probably not. Since you had moderate to severe pes planus on induction and it's severe now, but if without any pain, you don't have an aggravation. I take it that you haven't had

any medical teatments between discharge and now? (Prosthetics, like the Thompson-heeled shoes are a medical treatment.)

Read this with interest. Several entries in my military medical records attend to my flat feet/varicose veins edema problems that were on again/off again chronic conditions on active duty. Am treated by VA with orthotic inserts/support hose now every six months. May have applied for flat feet disability compensation upon reitrement years ago, wonder if I have chance to "re-apply" now, wasnt represented very well at all and have been going at issues with help of Hadit family - "Go Team!" Again, just wondering if I have a chance - thanks.cg

Cowgirl, if it's in your SMRs, you still have it and you've been treated for it along the way, go for it. You might get SC - 0%, but sounds like you should get at least SC. I'm guessing that you'll need some of that unpleasant ache and pain to get a compensation percentage.

I was drafted in 1968 and no flat feet and when I separated I was noted as having flat feet in 1970. In 1991 I applied for benefits and was awarded flat feet in 1992. During my C&P I answered truthfully that I had problems with shin splints and pain and that when I was tired my feet hurt. I was awarded 30%.

I think I was lucky. I have no arch in either foot.

Thanks. VA ortho doc has current very descriptive entry in my VA medical records. I am encouraged now to get IMO. Guess my next step is to ID specific SMR entries to submit for nexus, not sure if there is clear statement of "flat feet"ples panus", but several treatments for footpain/swelling. Now aches, muscle pulls and pain are constant,am thinking lower lumbar/D3 may be secondary, will see what IMO recognizes then back to VA.cg
