    • Are diabetic neuropath and sciatica rated separately or together under "nerves"?    
    • I'm certainly no expert. My Sleep Study clinic monitors my usage without the machine ever leaving my house. It has a built in modem. However, there is a card that can also be removed and data can be transferred to any computer for further transfer. I can't see a reason you would have to bring your CPAP anywhere. I suppose there are different versions; however, it sounds like a major inconvenience.
    • I think they just want to see if your using the c-pap faithfully and yes check out the data on it too, and see if all is ok with you and your sleep times? as for as S.A. Claims I don't think it matters if your sleep Apnea is Mild or chronic  Sleep Apena can kill ya no matter what . I'm not sure if they base the ratings % on this  or not or use the symptoms to rate S.A. ..I have always been told  if your Dx with S.A. and using a VA prescribe C-PAP Machine   its automatic 50% rating if you can prove it to be secondary from a SC. Disability  or you have records while in the military to show you had S.A or OSA ON RECORD. JMO ...............Buck
    • I would like to thank everyone on the PTSD and TDIU forums for helping me reach my 100% rating.  My story began in 1975 when I was in AIT.  I was the only female in my unit and my DI thought he could take advantage of that fact.  I was sexually assaulted and tortured by this man for 8 weeks.  I told no-one.  The reason for mentioning these facts is to let other veterans suffering from MST know that there is hope no matter how many years have passed.  I received my 100% award 41 years and 15 days after my assault began.  I suffered with nightmares and flashbacks for all of those years.  I worked and provided a decent living for myself until March of this year when I was finally forced to take a medical retirement.  I am 63 and just had 2 more years to make it to retirement.  In 2014 I joined a PTSD Support Group.  For the first time I was able to tell my story.  My peers encouraged me to file a claim and I finally did.  My symptoms became much worse the more I opened up and I ended up losing my job.  The reality is I would have lost my life if I had not have met these amazing women.  My life is finally turning around and I am learning to control my anger and feel as though I deserve to live.  I never believed that anyone would believe my story after all of those years.  The person that investigated my claim uncovered some conversatIons that I had  with a Chaplin.  He had noted in my file that he thought I had been sexually assaulted even  though I never said those words.  I was amazed at how thorough this investigation was.  Please forgive my rambling, I just want others to know that there are claims personnel that really work hard to give us the benefits we deserve.  I spent hours reading the Had It forums to keep my self encouraged during the waiting time.  Thank you all so much for the support!
    • Can anyone give me a timeline on when I might receive any information in the mail? How long before back-pay?

Claim Closed, Waiting For Envelope Now

18 posts in this topic

According to the 800 number, my claim is closed and the letter is in the mail. As I figured, the rep wouldn't give me any clue as to whether or not it was favorable. There was something mentioned that makes me think one or more issues got deferred.

I guess I'll learn something soon, it surely won't be as long as it has been.

aces,

Just for kicks - try my backdoor way.

Call the 800 # and ask what is your current SC'd percentage,

sometimes it works.
