1st off, is all your current SA DX info in tour VMC medical File? If it is, file an FDC for SA Secondary to whatever SC you currently have, that could be linked as a Nexus for your SA.
Then sit back and let the VA Rating Dept do it's Magic Act. Just because you now have a DX of SA, doesn't necessarily guarantee a Secondary SC Award.
Question... I currently have SA secondary to PTSD and depression. I have been knocked out several times on active duty( parachute falls, combat) but have never been dx'ed with TBI. I do suffer from the memory loss and other symptoms that I've read about with TBI but again have never been dx'ed for that. I had several headache treatments during AD...
What route would you recommend to get the TBI claim going? I have a PCP appointment next month at the VA and want to present possible TBI issues. In many ways, I sucked it up after I passed out and didn't run to the Military doc.
UPDATE!!! 5 months and counting and still no word on my DRO hearing out of WACO office! I called my DAV rep last week and she was so dumb that she said I already had a decision back in March! No lady that was my FDC claim....She then went on to say that oh well you have a long wait. So I asked how long and she said they are working 2013 claims and even ones that have already had their DRO hearings. So I guess so much for the Mar-Sept 2016 window for a decision???
Well I guess it is a waiting game at this point right????? LOL
