sitting at preparation for decision

3rd AD guy


I've been sitting at PFD about a week for Gulf war unexplained illness. I've had several MRI which shows white plaque on my brain and increasing. Had my C&P examiner noted as my VA doctor that it is unexplained with headaches. Anyone else experience same MRI and what are my chances on approval?

Had very similar MRI results and med notes as yours.  Mine was approved first time through after about 10 months total processing time, (submitted as FDC).  Initial was 30%, but currently in appeal now

(Thanks to HadIt! ).   History shows GWI claims are tricky at best.  Lots of GWI vets get snared by the unexplained/undiagnosed.  It really depends on the claims examiner, the references used and the medical evidence.  ( and of course the VA magic 8 ball...) 

Hang in there bud!  Sincerely hope you get it straight from the start! 

Whatever happens, do not quit!  

Once you get the packet, go over it very carefully and post any questions you have here.  Do your research, see exactly what they condition they really rate you with or how they deny it and go from there. 

The good folks here will get you on the right path!

Thanks bro yea it's been right at 11 months now. Was really glad examiner and doctor had both wrote it being unexplained. Seems that's the keyword I've noticed vets that get a diagnosis get screwed. I'm 50% currently I'm hoping they move me to 80.
