What are the chances of getting approved of va disability if i have no evidence? I hurt my ankle when i was still in service (injury happened in Iraq) and NCOs insisted that i check with our medic first and i was told all i need is to rest it a few days. I've been out now for 7 years and it still hurts on different occasions. I dont have paperwork that it happened while i was still in. Also thinking about claiming ringing on my ears but again i don't really have paperwork to back it up. What are the chances? Or is there a way?
