I was diagnosed by VA Docs with IBS in February of 2016. I am PGW, and Somalia Veteran, my infanty battalion 3/7 was in heart of oil fires etc during Desert Storm etc. I filed claim for IBS and was denied due to not being service connected. I recently met with DAV VSO for appeal, who advised we should ask for a reconsideration as opposed to an appeal because it has been 20 years. I thought it was a presumptive illness/disability, he said no because of time frame. I am confused on the best course of action. During the C and P exam, Doctor didnt ask me one question.
