  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Illustrated Atlases

Recommended Posts

With the illustrations in these references, you can check on the medical terminology about your body, that you don't understand.

You have to dig a little, but there is a gold-mine of anatomical information here, that could allow you to rebut many of VAROs stupid contentions.

There are 5 sections;




4.Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary and Respiratory Systems;

5.Skeletal System

The Table of Contents is about halfway down the page.

Whether you go to the Alphabetical or By Region area, you have to page down past the written matter, to find the illustrations. Then click on the icon at the left margin, to view the drawings.

GREAT Link Walter!

I think a picture can be worth a thousand words-

I sent VA copy of an autopsied heart-in living color-from a medical Atlas

with left ventricular hypertrophy-consistent with untreated diabetes so they would understand Rod's heart disease -which the VA diagnosed 3 years after he died-and sent another copied diagrahm of a brain- to show where his brain damage was-

Funny thing- after I did this- using his autopsy and VA's MRI results-it hit me how many deficits he actually had-and how the different areas of stroke trauma affected his speech,sight, and neuropathy-

Not only can these medical references and atlases help veterans understand fully their medical conditions-they can also help a lot with a claim.

Great work here Walter-I dont think these VARO people fully comprehend much medical stuff at all-

like say a vet has SC GERD- and then the vet develops an esophagus condition-

even if it has not been 'more than likelyed' yet to the GERD- an Atlas picture can show the distinct fact that

the esophagus ties in with the stomach and all the other gastrointestinal stuff, and most probably is due to the GERD.

    • I was rated at 10% for tinnitus last year by the VA. I went to my private doctor yesterday and I described to him the problems that I have been having with my sense of balance. Any sudden movement of my head or movement while sitting in my desk chair causes me to lose my balance and become nauseous. Also when seeing TV if there are certain scenes,such as movement across or up and down the screen my balance is affected. The doctor said that what is causing the problem is Meniere's Disease. Does any know if this could be secondary to tinnitus and if it would be rated separately from the tinnitus? If I am already rated at 10% for tinnitus and I could filed for Meniere's does any one know what it might be rated at? Thanks for your help. 68mustang

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67. 
    • If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.
