Pamelab, Yes its the first step. You will be going back many times to come. Start your claim after you request your med records from the clinic or hospital you went to. Also send off for your military med records. I myself have not started a claim, but will be doing so in the next week. I have an AFO, hadicap parking and a cane. When I got back to the states in May 91' I had been disharged before the division got back and the hospital was closed so got my physical through VA. 0% for cyctitis and 0% for hearing. I do get free aids and batteries.

Have you had the regestry exam? Mine was the biggest sham there was. A PA gave it. NO blood work ad never got the follow up letter you are suppose to receive.

Now that it has been recognized I will be going forth.

R/O? Do you mean Rule Out?

I do not have a claim for irritable bowl. I have so many symptoms/problems the ibs symptoms didn't stand out to me.

I will say that a significant portion of GW Vets are afflicted and it is bacterial, thus treatable. The study I am in is for the treatment as a previous study has determined the cause. In the future it seems GW related ibs will have a 0% rating as it is likely a cureable infection. It is not Gulf War Illness. It is a presumtive illness though and can be SC as such.

A breath test was needed to diagnose it for the study. Eccessive amounts of hydrogen, produced by the bacteria, are exhaled through the lungs.
