  1. Hello Berta. I did get a letter from DOD stating what the exposure. I also read the new ratings for skin diseases. I believe there is some language in the new ratings that mentions claim filing dates and if your claim will fall under the old rating or the new rating depending on the date of your appeal.
  2. Hello Berta. I appreciate you response and information. I do have a buddy letter and also a letter and a letter from DoD acknowledging my exposure to chemicals from exploded exploded ordinance https://archive.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=16551 . I would think this is relevant. I have seen research moving towards associations of injections, pb pills, pesticides, etc. and illnesses from Gulf War service and skin conditions. I'm hoping I can get this done before the Jan 9, 2020 deadline. Thank You Shawn
  3. Hello all. I am seeking any knowledge or advice on my current claim. I conducted a video conference with a law judge on October 11th, 2019. I am seeking a claim for chronic idiopathic urticaria(hives) that I've been battling for close to 28 years. I conducted (2) Persian Gulf War clinical studies and evaluations at Walter Reed back in the early 90's. The file acknowledges that I have this chronic illness but I lack a nexus letter or imo. The judge found my testimony to be very credible and identified a treatment for dermatitis while I was in service. I also sought medical treatment on t
  4. Hello Berta.  I was seeking you knowledge and advice on my current claim.  I conducted a video conference with a law judge on October 11th, 2019.  I am seeking a claim for chronic idiopathic urticaria(hives) that I've been battling for close to 28 years.  I conducted (2) Persian Gulf War clinical studies and evaluations at Walter Reed back in the early 90's.  The file acknowledges that I have this chronic illness but I lack a nexus letter or imo.  The judge found my testimony to be very credible and identified a treatment for dermatitis while I was in service.  I also sought medical treatment on the private side, Dermatologist, immunologist, and internist,  with the same chronic idiopathic classification.  I am looking to associate my illness to the toxic exposures and/or the initial dermatitis diagnosis that I received while in Iraq, Saudia Arabia and Kuwait. I've been given 90 days to get a imo/nexus letter from a dermatologist.  Essentially my question is do you know of a regional resource that would identify a good starting point for locating a Dermatologist who could assist with such a letter?  Any other points of advice?  Could medical hypothesis's be helpful?

  5. Hello fellow Veterans. I have a BVA appeal that is being heard via video conference on Oct 11th. The issue I am claiming is idiopathic urticaria which I've had for over 25 years. I am claiming this to be service connected during my time in the Persian Gulf in 1991 because I've been to many other physicians and no known diagnosis can be attributed. On two occasions I had Gulf War exams conducted on me at Walter Reed back in 1992/1993 with no known cause. I was exposed to oil well fires, burn pits, depleted uranium, took the pills, had the inoculations, etc. and I'm still fighting the fig
