I filed for gulf war conditions not really talking to the DAV or other organizations. They have denied all my conditions which have been diagnosed by VA as well which was as early as 2012. Two questions I wanted to ask was :

1. Whether I should file NOD for these conditions?

2. Will I be able to apply for these conditions not using assumed gulf war conditions as they have been diagnosed and not an unexplained illness or condition?


Adjustment Disorder with Mixed Anxiety and Depressed Mood

I was diagnosed with this condition in 2016

Mental Disorder Diagnosis #1: Adjustment Disorder with Mixed Anxiety and

Depressed Mood

ICD code: 309.28(F43.23)

There are few others where I was diagnosed with Allergic rhinitis (Icd-9-cm 477.9) in 2012.

Diagnosis: Tinea versicolor

ICD code: B36.0 Date of diagnosis: 2010

I was also treated for it on 2005 but I didn't follow up.

Basically VA is saying that I do not have any service connection.

Please advise how I should proceed with this. Thank you

What was the date of the denial? Can you scan and attach here their Reasons and Bases for the denial and the evidence list?

Cover your C file # name, etc.prior to scanning it.

Search here for Caluza elements too---did you get any C & Ps at all?

If so do you have copies of them?

What did you claim?  I hope it was not just 'Gulf War Illness'.

VA does not compensdate Gulf War Illness-they must have a clear cut description of whatever illness you claim due to the GW....and a nexus. Nexus info available under a search.

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

I am writing my memoirs and would love it if you could help a shipmate out and look at it.

I've had a few challenges, perhaps the same as you. I relate them here to demonstrate that we can learn, overcome, and find purpose in life.

The stories can be harrowing to read; they were challenging to live. Remember that each story taught me something I would need once I found my purpose, and my purpose was and is HadIt.com Veterans.

The date of the denial was December 2016, I still have some time debating whether I should go through this process that's all. I am attaching all the documents from VA and will attach further statement of support etc. on the reply later. I did get C&P exam and those are attached as well with the DBQ. I didn't claim only as gulf war illness but kind of related to it may be it wasn't a good idea.

I hope you can access the google drive file. Thank you for your help.
