  1. Thoughts: Good info on how to get Service connected for IBS. I'm currently 30% for IBS secondary to my back. https://youtu.be/2Hk-M-r7GrQ
  2. Good point, so the appeal is for physical conditions (none that will most likely kill me.. knee, flat feet, ect). There could be a sizable retro pay involved 20k plus, would you still do it? Could I loss my P&T or SMC?
  3. Thanks!! I'm on the fence right now If I will do it or not.
  4. I recently was awarded 100% P&T with SMC (100% mental health, plus many others) but I've had an unrelated appeal going since 2015. Should I cancel the appeal now? I know I would sacrifice some back pay but I do not want to risk losing my P&T plus SMC status.
  5. Does anyone have any advise for some filling for PTSD due to MST in the military with no record of the insident? They also did not tell anyone about the insident.
  6. I actually shed a tear when I heard that numbers Is shutting down, by the far the best number to call to get information.
  7. LOL sucks so much, they were actually knowledge reps who seemed to care.
  8. No link, if you call it says before you get to a rep that there closing down. I knew a couple of the reps there by name and they don't know where they are going to be transferred too yet. There office closes September 11th. My thought is that the number got out to too many vets and there call volume increased like crazy.
  9. All good things must come to an end, the VA office of communication and case management (1-202-530-9470) is no longer going to be taking calls. This has been the most helpful number to get information out of the VA, sad to see it closed down.
  10. https://www.valor4vet.com/about -- My Number one recommendation for an IMO. I have used them with great success. $300 - 400 per IMO. I did not use these guys but I did speak to them on the phone. www.reemedical.com -- They are a company that can get DBQs filled out for you. There focus is the joints. Up front $1775 flat fee for all DBQs. Veteranrating.com -- If you go here and fill out some info they can recommend medical consulting company's to work with.
  11. I used valor4vet for my appeal and a first time claim, for an IMO. The first time claim was successful because of the IMO. If you can make it to Arizona they fill out DBQs for about $150. I would highly recommend them and I've had positive results using them.
  12. I would call the number you gave me and see if they can see the request in your file? I called and they said that they can see the request in my file from the hotline. I haven't seen any results yet but I do know they put in the request.
