Hello, Does anyone know if emails I sent to my wife (from my military email while active duty) and communication we had back and forth relating to my in-service health issues/injuries endured/symptoms and sleep issues I was experiencing count as evidence I can submit with my VA claims for disability? There are many emails going back many years while I was in the service. I just have very limited documentation in my service medical records as I only went to medical when I had no other choice so I thought to ask if these could help connect my claims to service? Thank you for any and all assistance. Brian
I am already service connected for fecal incontinence for a discectomy I had in service. This was in 2011. When I walked into the C&P docs office, he stated this was a no-brainer so I was automatically assigned a 60% rating. well now urinary incont just started (actually started years ago), so I sent in a claim and doc said he couldn't connect it to anything in my records...completely nuts, so I had to waste my time and the VA urologists time, anyway there is now a note in my VA medical records that states "urinary incontinence is related to spinal surgery he had in service". 2 questions, is that sentence good enough? and do I start another claim with new evidence or how to I reopen this one? Thanks!
