I also have the rash, but after many years of getting turned down for Gulf War Syndrome I decided to break things down and filed for my skin individually. I was approved. VA pays me under exzema.

I see you are 40%. Are you already rated for PTSD?

I filed for GWS 8 months ago and received no C&P exam, I am still waiting on a decision. Anyway, what was recommended to me was to file for the individual condition as Fire Courage did. So when I get my denial I'll do that. It is unfortunate though because I have very good documentation to support one of my claims.

JMO,

Fire Courage.

No,The PTSD has been diagnose by the psychologist, and we have been working on that phase for over a year, at least it seems like it. I did not put in for it due to the prior claim on GWS. I also have other diagnosis from the psychologist, as chronic pain disorder and depression. I have heard that VA only approve one mental disorder. so I don't want to play it too close. But my PTSD came from that same war. I think I will rather deal with PTSD separately.

Vperl, To me my psychologist at VA and the psychiatrist also at VA, to me has done a very good job. I was at a more mess up place that I am now. Other than treatment both talk and plans exercise, combine with meds. and documentation we, I haven't done any work with a VSO. I was thinking DAV. since I don't drive long distance and they have a pick up program. if I had to go to Winston/Salem. Three hours plus away. Any suggestions? It all was hold up on GWS outcome and finalization.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
