  1. I tired to research this here but I did not find this question so here goes. I retired in 2011, i was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis in 2019. GW and burn pits 2006 and 2008. On the Burn Pit registry. I'll file a disability claim but will they just boot it since i'm filing almost 10 years after retirement? . I've read a lot of material, some on VA.gov websites, and I'm not clear if RA/autoimmune diseases have an established presumptive cause with GW service/burn put exposure. One article would make it sound like it was in the works, another like it was a done deal. I can think bac
  2. I have had hand tremors for a few years now (i don't remember exactly when they started). I was recently told by a doctor to see a neurologist, which I did last month. I was told that she believes they are physiologic tremor. With no known history tremors in my family and no abnormalities in my blood work, I am curious if this is a condition that I could apply for as presumptive to service in the gulf war? I did 3 deployments to Iraq (2005,2006, 2007), I am also already presumptively service for IBS from gulf war service. Has anyone had experience with this?
  3. Hi, Berta (everyone), I am curious if there’s any instructions on how to go about: DIC is granted & accrued / death pension benefits are denied. My VA rep (Colorado VA office), recently explained to me that my mom was awarded DIC benefits ( I filed on her behalf ), effective the day of his death (my dad died Dec.30, 2017) of... 1-Pneumonia 2-COPD 3-CAD but, we (she) was denied accrued because the Army / VA did not owe him any money, since he never filed for benefits while alive. While that part is true, he never filed because he was told he did not have agent ora
  4. In March I filed a presumptive claim for GWI for fibromyalgia. I know that C&P exams are not always required and so was wondering if anyone knows if they are usually required or not for a presumptive claim. I also wondered if it matters to the VA that my diagnosis was given by a military doctor at a major military hospital versus a civilian doctor. I included a letter in my documentation clearly stating this was a presumptive claim quoting the 38 CFR § 3.317 reg for fibromyalgia.
  5. Can someone please clarify these concerns? 1. During the presumptive period after my ETS, do I file everything under one claim? Is it better to file everything under one claim or separately under multiple claims? I'm afraid of the doctors and staff looking over my claim and think I am 'malingering' even though they are all true. 2. I do not have my actual medical record packet but do have a generalized medical data (still quite detailed) from Tricare Patient Portal via downloading from the Blue Button. Has anyoe had experience with this? 3. When do I submit my nexus? 4. D
  6. Hello,I am filing for presumptive SC for hypertension; working with VSO and my readings and diagnosis fit within the criteria for disabling (at least 10%) within 1 year of discharge from active duty, but the medical opinion from my c&p states there is no "direct service connection". Has anyone experienced this before? Will the VSR ask for another medical opinion based on presumptive SC or is this how the medical opinions are always worded regardless? Here is verbiage directly from the physician's medical opinion strictly for hypertension: SC:MEDICAL OPINION SUMMARY--------------
  7. I have been retired for 7 years now and was rated at 60% for various disabilities after I retired. One month after I retired, I had a colonoscopy; benign polyps (i.e. benign neoplasms), a type that could turn to cancer, were found and removed. I have had polyps removed twice since then. Now I would like to get my polyps service connected at 0% in case something more serious were to develop in the future. My question: Since my polyps diagnosis was only a month after I retired, do I need a NEXUS letter to say the polyps were "more than likely" to have developed while on active d
  8. Who actually decides or who would need to be contacted regarding changes in agent orange presumptives. I especially wonder about neuropathy which according to VA has to have been manifested to at least 10% within one year of discharge. But, according to multiple sources, this is a disease that was not even diagnosable until recently. That makes it impossible to meet the requirements for presumptive. So, who could actually introduce a change? Thanks Kate
  9. Long time no see, y'all. First the important bit: http://www.va.gov/opa/pressrel/includes/viewPDF.cfm?id=2743 If it works like ALS did, then effective dates will be from the date the regulation goes into effect. Meaning, if you've been fighting an appeal for years, they may grant on a presumptive basis effective the date of the new regulation,. Hopefully, however, you can get the right evidence and medical opinion so that you can win on DIRECT though. Now, the other thing. I used to be a VA adjudicator, and from time to time I would poke my nose in here, trying to help where I could. I got sup
  10. There are 5 ways of obtaining Service connection, and not 2 like most VSO's state. The ones most VSO's often state are Direct and presumptive. However, there are 5: 1. Direct 2. Presumptive (this means there was an "act of law" which means you get service connection if you meet the criteria for the law). 3. Secondary. This means your service connected condition somehow caused another illness/injury. 4. Aggravation. This means you while you may have already had an injury in service, your military service "aggravated" and made worse your condition. 5. 1151. This means you
  11. On the presumptive diseases listed her, what are the requirements? For instance, do they need to be diagnosed within a year of discharge, etc.? §3.309 Disease subject to presumptive service connection http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?type=simple;c=ecfr;cc=ecfr;rgn=div8;idno=38;q1=3.309;sid=8810eabd3a17b04d69a91436c1460478;view=text;node=38%3A1.0.1.1.4.1.66.117 Thanks, Kate
