was this an incident that occurred in the line of duty, meaning you should have had an LOD filled out, or is it something that developed after your return and can't be linked to any specific incident?

i would get any issues documented with the VA for sure. even if they reject your claims, you have documentation from the VA. years down the road, things may change and the VA may cover you (i.e. agent orange exposure)

See if Alabama has a state-level agency that can act cooperatively (for you) with the fed VA. Here in Texas we have the Texas Veteran's Commission. They are usually very effective at dealing with the VA--that is there job--and work to help the member navigate the VA bureaucracy and make adjustments on initial and future VA claims.

A word of caution: If you ask the VA to review your disability status they will review your whole status (not necessarily your new condition) and I have seen at least two people have their VA ratings reduced when reviewed a second time. Not sure if this applies to you at this point just thought I'd throw that out there. Best of luck and I hope you get the treatment you need!
