@  notapb1 : (18 August 2014 - 07:26 AM) Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

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.
