@  maxwell18 : (16 November 2014 - 09:04 PM) I Still Have To Bitch About The Navy Hosp Cutting My Meds By 2/3 On My Norco. I Contacted Customer Service Or What Ever You Want To Call It Who In Turn Contacted The Navy Hosp Pensacola Commander Who In Turn Did Nothing. Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place. I Guess Just Do What Ever They Want To Because They Can, But Don't Give A Sh T For The Vets That Suppose To Being Supporting From All The Military  organizations. This Is Not The Way They Have Been Trained And Promised To Do.

@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:08 AM) "rolled" Not Ruled! :)
@  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.

Good Afternoon All.


Received the big brown envelope today. It stated an increase for my Fibromyalgia from 20% to 40%.
Denial for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Irritable Bowel Syndrome due to "The evidence does not show a current diagnosed disability and the evidence shows an event,disease, or injury in service."

Ha Ha, looks like the medical records showing CFS and IBS were once again overlooked, funny stuff, guess I'm heading for a DRO appeal with a NOD, which at this point I have no doubt will show the evidence on file.

Others on my documents; PFS left knee: deferred
PTSD: Deferred

In any case, I have been upgraded from 30% to 50%, so at least its a start! Thanks to everyone with their good advice on this site. Its very much appreciated.
