contact a local structural engineer. just went through this on a truss issue. complete waste of $450

best of luck

this is a side wall of a closet. I think I am OK.. if I tap it, sounds pretty taught.

Im a fucking idiot. I should take a pic of me coming on my own face to show OT what a stud I am.
