    • "Question to all: do I do an appeal (NOD)? i am passed the one year mark.  Do I initiate a new claim?"  You need to re-open this claim with New and Material evidence.  "Today, my doctor decided to write a letter indicating that my vertigo and dizziness condition, in her opinion that is more than likely not that this was from the Mefloquine (Lariam ) medication." That letter would be new and material evidence. The letter should state that the doctor had ruled out any other etiology but for the Lariam for the vertigo and support their conclusion with any strong medical abstracts that long term use of Larium can cause this disability.Someone else recently posted a Larium topic here, as well. One of it's side affects can be dizziness and vertigo: http://www.rxlist.com/lariam-drug/medication-guide.htm I mentioned no 'other etiology' because I assume your hearing has been thoroughly checked to rule out ear problems as a cause.I think that link  even mentions larium can cause tinnitus. Can you tell us exactly why they denied the claim? Did you raise the Larium issue when you filed it?    
    • I changed it on ebenefits and va hospital I just don't think I called the 1000 number to confirm my address change I thought updating ebenefits would do the job but it didn't thanks for the info I'm just glad this madness is over I was stressed beyond any stressed point I have ever been 
    • I emailed my PCP ask her if she can help me with it  Just mention to her that I lost interest in sexual actitivy since taking the PTSD Meds and maybe possible other VA prescribe Meds. I just mention  a few things  and ask if she could help me with it? I never mention anything about filing a claim  to her....yet anywayz. I will file a claim for it  but I want my sex life to came back  which I have my doubts.  with a VA  Diagnose of Chronic PTSD I don't much think the V blue Pills will help?
    • Sorry this was for the Dallas Tx VA But they maybe some information in it to help you? https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/USVHA/2016/09/26/file_attachments/627672/VA%2BGRANT.pdf .........Buck
    • I just got a new press release from VA news about spinal patients I'll read up up on it or paste the link here....Busy right now but sometimes today I will. ...........Buck

When they say a vet is unfeasible for Voc Rehab they are saying the veteran is unemployable-

This is good evidence to help to support a TDIU claim- especiallyif it says the veteran's service connected disabilities preclude employment-

Ok, I am not getting your point...........Voc rehab said I was not feasable and unemployable.............the shrink at the hospital says this is not a job, not taxable, but the vet is compensated..........I think its something to get me out of the house and prevent me from being more of a recluse...........

I think it is good as long as it does not impact future ability to get TDIU. I hope the doctor is not going to try and say you are much improved after this therapy and rule out TDIU or a higher rating. If you are unemployable you should be getting TDIU. 100% has many benefits besides the check.

I've talked to many people, and IU will not do a thing for me, it will offset my retirement check and no CDRP for another 3 years............it would cut my x wifes 50% big time, but just piss her off and make her come after me..........I have to try and get 100% the hard way.........
