Question Regarding Nod Mentality




I have viewed your site for a long time, finally became a member so i could post. Quick overview of myself, I am 25, medically retired army, for a dx of Multiple Sclerosis. After discharge I was rated at 60%, I sent an a NOD for an increase on the muscle weakness claims of the upper and lower extremities due to the fact I feel as if I am at a quarter of the strength I was before my first exaserbation(sp). I also was not rated for fatigue due to ms, and Irritable Bowel associated with MS even after being DX while on active duty. So I sent in those claims along with the request for a higher percentage for muscle claims. I received a fast response and had a C&P for the IB and fatigue, but there was nothing about the elevation of weakness claim. Also on the sheet they sent me it mentioned all claims except the claims for increase that I had disagreed with. Are these claims going to be seperate? I requested a de nero(sp) review for the weakness, will that be taken care of possibly from another review officer than the claims for IB and fatigue??? As you can tell I am a little confused about this process and if anyone needs clarification I would be happy to restate my question if needed. Thank you very much for you time and help
