Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place.

@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

I am going to put in a claim for IBS. Was wondering if there is a format for what is rated on the severity of the problem. Also idf any of you have been SC for IBS what kind of treatments have you recieved from VA? I was told by DAV rep that IBS falls under gulf war syndrome. Any truth to this at all? Thanks

"I was told by DAV rep that IBS falls under gulf war syndrome. Any truth to this at all? Thanks "

Technically that is correct- however the VA does not compensate Gulf War Syndrome- they compensate chronic unexplained qualifying illness.(IBS is one of those illnesses)

This VA link explains this better and there is a wealth of info under Qualifying Chronic disability in our GW forum.

I have seen claims at the BVA for "Gulf War Syndrome" that were denied because the veteran did not explain the cluster of
symptoms well enough to fall into the VA's definition of a qualifying chronic unexplained illness.

Also there should be a Gulf War radio show I did at SVR some time on Gulf War syndrome in the SVR archives here as to how the VA defines these illnesses and also info about the nine new presumptives that are predominently residuals from infectious bacterial disease that was most likely incurred in Southwest East theatre.

I think either way to state it is OK if you add to the sentence I claim GWS or chronic unexplained illness due to my service in South West Asia as I have these chronic conditions
with no known etiology but for my service during the Gulf War.

It pays to go over the qualifying chronic disabilities that VA will SC so tat nothing is left out.

It would help as well to check out the BVA web site and search for Gulf War Syndrome or Gulf War illnesses and see how vets shaped their claims.

You can be comped for IBS even if you are not a gulf war vet. It is a presumptive illness for anyone that was in Iraq from 2 Aug. 1990 until today.

To file for it (even under section 3.317) you will need a Dx of IBS. Then you will word your claim " I am filing a claim for IBS as a presumptive illness due to my service in the gulf war as per section 3.317 of title 38 of the CFR. I was given a Dx of IBS at XXX." next have a statement on just how bad it is and all of your symptoms.
