The alleged practice of the VA to red flag and discriminate against those who complain of the healthcare and/or lack of healthcare and subsequently file a disability claim or FTCA claim get unfair treatment by VA...Has anyone experienced this type of behavior?

A lot of anecdotical examples are out there but I have never had it done to me or a friend. But, the way the VA works, it wouldn't surprise me one bit. If it would happen to me I would get a really good lawyer and slam them.

Yes, one of my co-workers has and he recently just got a payout for it as well. Talk to a lawyer. The VA is rife with corruption. The kind where they work hard to not do any work.

I was deployed with the 2nd MARDIV during Operation Desert Storm/Desert Shield, when I got back I experienced joint swelling, aches, headaches like never before. Prior to that I was top class during all PT, the VA did give me a rating as they categorized it as rheumatoid arthritis, as I got older it got worst and I made a reclaim, which the VA came back and just labeled it as Fybromyalgia. Today, I have throat problems, tinittus and chronic headache that most likely were to living in the belly of an Assault Vehicle, inhaling diesel fuel, burning wells smoke and God knows what else. The VA is saying that I cannot make those claims since it has been over 10 years since I dettached. Any ideas or same situations out there?
