Hello everyone, I am new here so I am hoping this is posted in the right place. I separated from the Navy in Dec 2012, somehow through some crazy stroke of luck my rating came back in Feb 2013.
0% bilateral DJD knee
0% heel spur
0% bilateral plantar fasciitis
My question is the plantar fasciitis is one of my biggest problems, I wear custom orthotics, I have hard and soft boots for sleeping as well as some giant robocop brace thing they expect me to sleep in.
I would assume my feet should warrant a higher rating but I do not know what my next steps are. I went through the DAV with my claim and did nothing but turn in my records, sign a POA and go to the assigned exams. I have tried reaching out to the DAV on several occasions over the last few months with no reply.
Is this something I can do on my own and if so what are my next steps?
Sorry if this is a silly question but I want to find out what to do from people who know......
