New Here Need Advise



Hello all I have been reading through these threads for a few days and have not seen any one on here with my same situation. So here is my story I entered Navy boot camp last December and was separated In March of this year. While in boot camp I got injured. The doctor told me i had 6 stress fractures.after this i started having problems with knee they also told me i have flat feet which i never knew. After being on medical hold i returned back to a division for a weekend and i was told i will have to go back to medical hold because my knee worsen. I ended up getting medical separated for flat feet. after i put up a fight because they where not sure how long it will take me to fully heal. i was told by someone that i should file a claim with the va because when i returned home i walked with a limp and could not walk or stand for 5 mins with out needed to rest. i was awarded 10% for knee pain and 0 for both left and right tibial stress reaction which the c&p doctor calls posteerior tibialis tendinitis. which all are service connected. I am not trying to beat the system or anything i know techinially speaking i never became a sailor. All i really want is medicial help so i can go back to doing the things i love in life which is cooking which i also have a degree in. My knee is still in constant pain i can not wear shoes most days of the week because it causes my feet to sweell and hurt. I still can not walk or stand for long with out rest. when i say long i mean your avergae 5 - 10 min. When i went to the C&p exmam the doctor look at me as if i was lying when i told him the promblems but with out any medical eveidence besides my boot camp records its hard to do anything. I did not have any health insurance and i just found out that i can start going to see my knee. any advice on what else i can do to help me. Like i said all i really want is to be able to do the simple things and be able to fully persue my cooking and right now i can't do that.
