My journey with the VA has been a long one but now I final have my TBI rated so I reopened my MH claim where they said it was major depressive disorder with anxiety. They said it wasn't service connected 6 years ago I thought when they deny it they review the files. So why do I have this MRS giving his opinion? My TBI and my deployment are both in my file just neither were mention in my first exam even though she knew about it cause I told her she just said not in file no review on the C&P. It's now going on 3 Yeats since I filed this claim and apparently they pushed my completion date 4 months because awaiting an Military Records specialist how can they deny my first claim of they didn't already review them?
I hope so,. But I hav to wonder what or if the va is trying to wave a bone here. Maybe they are not wanting to pay from 1/2012. So they are looking to tie it into heart disease and pay from 07/14. But he has had the kidney disease for about 5 yrs. and you know what is on the even site on the claim they put on, over to the side, it has a section that ask if he want them to make a decision now. I have never seen that before. Any one else ever had this to happen?
Tinnitus and hearing loss are common afflictions for SCUBA divers, both professional and recreational. If you ever had a pulmonary inner ear squeeze while descending, you have stretched that membrane until it bleeds inside. The pain is awful and you can't hear for days out of the affected ear(s). There was a study done, I believe I have the PDF on my computer. You can also get this from breath hold diving and some flyers get them. Google Valsalva Manuever.
