Good evening, TBird,
I would like to first thank you for creating this site. The impact this site has on our veteran disability claims experience cannot be expressed in mere words. I read about why you started this site and I am just thankful that you followed your heart because it is helping so many of us that just need guidance from tried and true experiences from disability warriors.
I would like to ask a question and hopefully you can provide some guidance or assistance. Do you know whether or not the VA considers lay evidence coming directly from a veteran to further corroborate their claim such as a print out of side effects of their medication for a SC'd condition? Example: A vet already has an IMO nexus letter for claimed conditions, but the vet wants to take it a step further by providing printed medical literature that is given with the medication that is prescribed if this granular level of detail is not contained in the nexus letter already?. Especially, if the medications have the exact side effects of the secondary conditions being complained of?
