    • All my bank info is up to date and it's set to let me know when money hits just frustring when it was at the prep for notice then moves back. Hopefully soon it will do something 
    • the  Dr can do some testing, like testosterone in the testicals, and brain,. but its not conclusive.there are  many variables, everyones different. Its hard to get "randy", if you have things weighing heavily on your mind. the  smk is called... " loss of use of creative organ". or something to that effect. Im surprised the Va isnt putting penis bands on people yet, and making them watch  erotic movies to measure arrousal. heck nothing surprises me anymore. Viagra does help, some people.. the VA has cut the pills down to 2  a month. if you cut them in half, you can halfway get off 4 times a month!!! hurahhhh. hurahhhh..  . I guess its ok for the VA to waste billions on bullshit,     but when it comes to a vet having congical happiness, theyve decided you get 4 shots at it a month..  ,

    • Load, your at 90%, is your Direct Deposit account set up to Txt/Email you in real-time, regarding all Financial Transactions? Prior to 01/03/2016, I would have agreed with Buck, regarding E-Ben being less than accurate as to Future Completion Dates. I've had (2) Awards in 16, E-Ben posted updates at Least (2) weeks before the Retro Hit. In years past, Retro Hit about a min of 3 weeks before your Decision Letter Arrived, sometime after that, E-Ben was updated to reflect your New Award Info. It definitely appears to me, somebody at E-Ben finally got their Sierra, Hotel, India, Tango together. Semper Fi
    • Thank you for responding.

      All of the original claims were denied of “The evidence does not show a current diagnosed disability” with the exception of the chronic sinusitis, which stated there was no event in service. He claimed no problems even though over 100 pages of civilian medical records for treatments showed otherwise.

      In May of 2012 I sent back the following letter:
        Notice of Disagreement (NOD)
      Dear Sir/Madame: I am in receipt of your letter of 11 April 2012. In that letter you have denied my application for a disability
      rating I claimed 16 AUG 2011.

      Please accept this letter as my Notice of Disagreement (NOD) with your decision.

      My reason for this NOD is an incomplete CP exam was performed along with the examiner not reviewing multiple current civilian medical records and diagnoses.

      I request a Decision Review Officer Process (DRO) appeal and I request a personal hearing.

      I never did get a personal hearing but it turns out they did send a packet in Dec 2012/Jan2013.  I did not remember this until I went through my files. Sorry about that  - I really didn't think I had received back anything.  Dangit - It really gets frustrating when you can't recall a lot of things.  This head injury really screwed up my life!

      It turns out they did send me a request additional data and I sent in a Statement in Support of Claim.  I also did find a copy of the VA Form 9 requesting a hearing but it was only to appeal two of the original issues, and out of that the TBI was eventually rated. 

      I don't recall getting a docket number.

      SO - false alarm.  Again, my apologies for not recalling any of this.  The only thing I need to worry about is having my existing ratings reversed, which I hope is safe because of all the documentation, including VA doctor letters.  If anything, the TBI residue is more severe than what they rated and only gets worse every year.

30% Ptsd

3 posts in this topic

I have 30% on PTSD. The VA also gave me a CPAP machine for my Sleep Apnea but is trying to tell me my Sleep Apnea is not service related. How do I get this changed? Do I need to get an IMO or what do I do? I talked to someone else who does not even have PTSD and he has 50% for Sleep Apnea and 30% for razor bumps? You have got to be kidding me! So he has 80% and no combat and I have PTSD and supposedly a non service connected Sleep Apnea and only 30% total disability. I need to know if I need a VA lawyer or what. I am in San Antonio, TX. Thanks in advance.

Why is the VA telling you your sleep apnea is not service related and why do you think it should be service related? Do you have medical evidence that supports that it should be service connected?

Everyone's situation is different.

Mooshi,

In the Rating Decision that denied SA what does it state in the Reasons and Bases Section?

How do I get this changed? Do I need to get an IMO or what do I do?

Mooshi,

It depends on your answer to the above - an IMO is usually helpful,

that is, if the IMO doc relates the SA directly to you and your conditions,

and the military,not just the public in general.

I talked to someone else who does not even have PTSD and he has 50% for Sleep Apnea and 30% for razor bumps?

Mooshi,

You don't have to have PTSD to get SC'd for SA.

PTSD - to my knowledge is not a medical causation of SA,

but I am not a doctor.

You have got to be kidding me! So he has 80% and no combat and I have PTSD and supposedly a non service connected Sleep Apnea and only 30% total disability.

A veteran does not have to have combat service to recieve SC'd disability.

jmho,
