  8. So does anyone know if this Proposed Rule is Final.....If so when, or does it go into effect? Marti
  9. Hey Zen Will it go automatically to 100% if you have only been diagnosed at 30%....and to the time you were diagnosed? Thanks Marti
  10. I tried to find out from the PVA.. He told me wait until you get the rating decision. Law says until you get the rating it is not allowed to be discussed.. I thought they already had a decision? Now I am really confused!
  11. I wish I knew :D . I have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis...I never got a copy of my C&P exam, which I asked for...so I am clueless...
  12. Hello.... I got a respond from the IRIS... "After review of your files, we see that your claim has progressed to "Pending Authorization" as of April 2, 2010." Would anyone know how long this takes? :D I am ready to pay off my medical bills... Thanks Marti

  14. Hey Art It took 2 years and 4 nerve and muscle conduction test....lots of blood work and MRIs...and muscle biopsy. Did your Doctor mention ALS? It is a hard disease to determine so maybe your doctor is looking for something else then ALS before he give you a diagnosis. Are you seeing VA doctors?
