Absolutely...try to see if Merck has info to help via google...as VA uses Merck info a lot.You can use a 21-4138 on line to use as cover letter for the CUE that your rep filed.
I sure hope these reps keep copies of what they file on line for a veteran.
I would love to see how he shaped the legal error.
If you mean on line by ebenefits---does the CUE claim show up there?
Have they not sent you to a neurologist? I have severe chronic migraines, I see a neurologist. Sadly, nothing has helped so far (and I am allergic to a lot of meds, or meds conflict with one another). I would never stop going for treatment for a service connected condition unless it has gotten better. I would ask for a referral to neuro and see if they can help, I have even had botox (after much hesitation) for mine and many migraine sufferers have success with botox treatment, I did not. I hope you find an answer for your migraines, I know how debilitating they can be!
Gastone is right...when we can read the actual words verbatim here, from the VA, we can help much more.
The claims process is a War of the Words.
The CUE claim and Asthma and Costrochondritis have been reopened twice and denied both times since coming back from Afghanistan.
So the CUE was denied and the asthma, costrochondritis ( I need to look that up) have all been denied?
Do you have any claims pending now?
Did you file a NOD timely for anything they denied?
I am lost.
Ms Berta is correct
a veteran can do this..> quote from ms berta
“In this case, the Veteran seeks service connection for PTSD, claiming that he developed PTSD as a result of having seen fiery aircraft crashes, to include victims in the wreckage, while stationed at Gander Army Air Base (AAB) in Newfoundland, during World War II (WWII). The Veteran is not in receipt of any military citations indicative of combat service such that the combat presumption under 38 U.S.C.A. § 1154(b) would apply. As such, service connection will be considered under the amended regulatory provision, 38 C.F.R. § 3.304(f)(3).
In evaluating the Veteran's claim under the amended regulatory provision, the Board will first consider whether the Veteran's claimed stressor event is consistent with the places, types, and circumstances of his service.”
THIS IS A TRUMATIC EXPERINCE
I would file claims for everything especially PTSD
