In Reply to: Gulf War Syndrom posted by Steimle on December 28, 1999 at 08:06:31:

: Well, here it goes... It has been quite a few years after the war, and I am finally accepting that there is a possiblity that I have the syndrome.
: My Wife and Mother-in-Law, called the local VA and told them some of the problems I have been having, and The VA called me... Set up an appointment for me to stop in, and said it as going to be up to 3 months to hear from the VA hospital.
: I got the Letter for appointment 1WEEK after I talked to the County VA......
: ARE they FESSING UP to the problems????
: My Grandfather is a ww2 vet, and he said the VA hospital NEVER has worked that quick......

: Any info???
>>Depends on your local clinic. Many VA hospitals and clinics are trying to see people as soon as possible. However, getting a ratings exam and rated for GWS may be another thing altogether. I'm still trying to get rated on the things I submitted back in 94. Get ahold of a VA rep in your local VFW, DAV or get a VA coordinator to help you file your claim. And keep fighting. If you get turned down by the ratings board, appeal, appeal, appeal. If there is a claim in, the VA will treat you. Your local phone book should list your local VA rep. Good luck.
