    • VA will pay compensation for some disabilities that are proven to be directly due to ionizing radiation exposure.   Ionizing only Can you scan and post the Reasons and Bases part of the denial and the evidence list from it? It is always possible that you were exposed to ionizing radiation but VA considered it to be non ionizing,in order to deny the claim. Based on your post it does sound like ionizing radiation.(involved with the nuclear reactor). Perhaps VA did not have enough info to determine what type of radiation you were exposed to. This VA  link contains limited info on radiation claims: http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/radiation/basics.asp We have more info here at hadit under Radiation than at the VA web site. Also there have been a few awards for Agent Orange exposure at Ft. Mc Clelland, also searchable here at hadit. Or you can search with google Radiation Berta hadit.com or Fort Mc Clelland AO Berta hadit.com and many of my posts as well as from others on these issues will pop up.I just suggest google with my name in it because I have had many posts on both of these issues here over the years and it is easy for me to use google to find them. Were you ever, while at Fort Mc Clelland, involved in any "Tiger Village" exercise? If so when? What disability(ies) are you attempting to gain service connection for? Cover your C file number,name, prior to scanning the denial.    
    • Its very hard to win a S.A. claim  if you don't have Medical Records about any type of Sleep Disturbance/OSA while in the military. it can be a secondary from another S.C. Disability ''Aggravated by''  but  a specialist sleep Dr would need to detail why it is aggravated by. A S.A. DX and using a C-PAP prescribe by the VA is not enough to win a S.A. Claim  Just saying ''It is more likely than not that the xanax that my patient takes contributes to the sleep apnea" would be sufficient.'' Is not enough! I agree with Lotz about the detail explanation of the med Xanax However its true the  VA raters are not Medical Dr's but they have been trained to  read medical evidence and have a medical manual for the claimed disability to  point out certain possibility's of the  causes /aggravated  by  ect,,,ect,,
    • Will get an attorney. Thanks for the advice. Anyone know of any good VA attorneys? 
    • Just my opinion, but I would suggest that your doctor also explain exactly how the Xanax that you take to treat PTSD causes YOUR sleep apnea, specifically.  What is it about that medication that leads to sleep apnea?  Add what clinical evidence exists to back him up, like in a journal or something like that, then have him attach his curriculum vital (aka resume).   VA raters who review these forms are not healthcare professionals and need things spelled out in plain English.

it has been my experience that you usually get a decision within 3 months but all VAROs are different some handle them faster and some are slower

Wow....it so depends. One thing I've learned about dealing with the VA.....never talk timelines with them. My claim was fast in VA-standards. Other claims are longer.

Remember the phrase "hurry up & wait"?

Yup....it still applies. I'd say if you want to check the status of your claim in a few months, submit an IRIS inquiry....never call the 1-800#!

I agree with Testvet. Once you have the C&P you will get an answer in a short time using VA timeline. You are almost there as far as decision does and I wish you good luck and hope you get what you want and are entitled too for your service.
