Screw Up?

Question

So, I got my BBE in the mail two weeks ago. I was reading through it, and it makes no mention of my scoliosis in the paperwork. Not even a 0% rating. The doc made it a second diagnosis and it says in his the paperwork that it is service connected. How would I go about taking care of this?

while the potato is still warm, can you go directly to your RO and try and talk to someone, ?

Dont let them do a reopen, if it was a claimed condition. did you specifically claim it? if not, duty to assist may also apply. let us know how it turns out.

them foockers will likley try to say it is a developmental disorder when they finally do acknowledge it., I too have curvature of the spine, but what it is from, is constantly leaning to the right, because of my back pain., THEY WONT TELL YA THAT .

they REALLY dont like talkin bout them back problems/.

First off . . .

Is scoliosis specifically listed as an ISSUE, to be addressed ?

Be sure to read over the decision and the REASONS and BASES SECTION's several times.

At this time there's no way to know if there is a CUE - - -

matter of fact, there can't be anything in the decision YET that would even

be ripe to submit a call of CUE on -- because you just got the decision, so that means

you would now be in a timeframe for any appeal.

Question.....was the scoliosis listed in your SMR's? I just wonder that if an individual enters the military with a clean bill of health and no abnormalities at an entrance examination, and then it is discovered and noted during the separation examination, would the VA be able to back out of rating it?
