  1. Awesome news and congratulations on your win, good luck in your future battles.
  2. You should have checked your V.A., they should have gotten you a cooling vest. I got one a couple years ago from the V.A and I love it.
  3. I quit driving 2 years ago because my condition causes too much fatigue. It was not worth the risk to continue!
  4. Congratulations!
  5. Congratulations it was a successful fight!
  6. I am looking for the secretary of the VA email thanks.
  7. All I can say is good luck. My neurologist has taken me off all M.S medications because of the side effects. I spent most of last year in the hospital. So I will see what they come out with next.
  8. I hated hearing that Holliie, getting a reduction just for asking for something that happens with M.S. patients. I asked for everything I received from this ugly disease. I was lucky, never received a reduction especially for neurgenic bladder or any other condition that has worsened from M.S. progression. Good luck in your future struggles with the V.A..
  9. I think it depends on VAMC you are working with. My wife gets paid monthly for my bowel and bladder care. If your VAMC has a separate program like ours you could get help then, good luck!
  10. Well I am a R1 veteran, my rating was given to me by a VA rater. I wrote to the va secretary and was called by the rater and he determined at te time I should be rated at the R1 level. I have loss of use of my lower extremities which was at 100% and then I was given a suprapubic cathator which is another 100% rating. So thats how I was put in the r1 rating. I can only guess that an r1 exam would include both physical and regular questions for you unless you have any qualifying conditions already in your medical records. Good luck!
