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.
