Wow! Need Some Sound Advice.

Question

Greetings

I received the following options in a letter from the VA today and need your advice.
- Continue to wait for a Traveling Board (2010 and 2011 Appeals pending at BVA, both appeals submitted to BVA May 2014)
- Request a Video Conference (much quicker than a Traveling Board hearing)
- Request a Hearing before BVA in DC (much quicker than a Traveling Board hearing)
- Withdraw my Hearing (withdrawing my hearing request could result in a quicker decision by BVA)

VA received my notice of disagreement (NOD) on March 8, 2010, for the following issues:

-left arm neuropathy due to exposure to Agent Orange herbicide
-diabetes mellitus type II due to exposure to Agent Orange herbicide
-bilateral big toe condition

VA received my NOD on August 12, 2011, for the following issues:

-low back pain with mild degenerative changes
-left lower extremity radiculopathy
-right lower extremity radiculopathy
-chronic arthritis
-ischemic strokes and seizures

Your advice good or not-so good is welcome

Best Regards
Chiefhouse

Way beyond my knowledge. Glad I live close to a VARO and hospital.

I read a few of your past posts here.


Do you mean these specific claims are at the BVA ?:

"VA received my notice of disagreement (NOD) on March 8, 2010, for the following issues:

-diabetes mellitus type II due to exposure to Agent Orange herbicide

Have you been able to find more evidence of your herbicide exposure?

Or on any possible stop over in Vietnam?

This is the most recent VA info on Thailand herbicide claims?

Did you spend any time on any ship on the VA's AO ships list, while in the Military?

If you have more evidence, I would think it is best to get the BVA to see it ASAP.
