A: Consult with an Attorney experienced in VA disability law. In order to determine what options you have available, an attorney would want to review all the letters you received from the VA about this and the nexus letter from the specialist. The VSO may be out of ideas, yet that does not mean everyone will agree that there is not anything else that can be done. Good luck and thank you for your service.
