  1. https://www.disabilityadvisor.com/five-common-mistakes-in-va-disability-claims/ I did list my symptoms back in the 1990's, the BVA judge in the last few years asked me about those claims and why I worded them the way I did, and told him I Knew I was sick and the doctors were not quite sure... about the diagnosis of each,,, but I at least claimed the symptoms, of course the RO denied me and 10 years later I had firmer diagnosis on the same symptoms... so I did do exactly as they say to do.. but the only va office which took my claims seriously was at the BVA decades later... I thoug

  2. Need more detail info to answer question. What is the disability you are filing for???? I can try some of my resources and research methods for your answer.

  3. I had headaches following a heat injury and it was noted in my medical records. Due to ignorance and poor leadership from the DAV I never filed for them. When I did this entry in my medical records was enough to get me disability at 0% which was later increased to 50%. List everything that you have including symptoms. We are not doctors and we do not know what symptoms could be linked to a disability.

  4. I will need to go into my VA hospital once a year to get the new supplies, they don't mail anything. The front desk went and asked someone about this guy needing a machine and was told they could not help him. I really do think it depends on who you talk with to get your machine. If I had not contacted the director’s office at the VA hospital, I would still be waiting on getting scheduled to get a machine. I believe the director’s office is being told by the cpap clinic that there is no backlog when in reality there is. I am assuming someone just does not want their section to look like

  5. Diabetes will show up in blood work. You should also look to see if your medical records say you were pre-diabetes.

  6. @paulstrgn That's great! My VA only gives six months of supplies at a time. I just set a reminder in my phone's calendar and send them a secure message twice a year. They just send me the supplies in the mail. If you have pets, be sure to ask for the micro filter (usually snaps on top of the regular air filter). They always seem to forget to send me it even though I ask for it up front. The front desk staff may need to be reminded they have a walk-in clinic (for the dude who came in and needed to get his broken machine replaced). Could be a case of laziness.

  7. Ok so from what I can read on here you need to fill out what she currently has not on what might happen. That is like saying well I might hit the lottery tomorrow should I throw that down? Nope. KISS (Keep it Simple-Stupid) is the best thing to use with the VA. I would go off of what she has at the time of filling out the form and nothing else. Also did you file for DIC?

  8. https://academic.oup.com/cardiovascres/article/114/13/1702/5056750 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4863816/ I just did a quick search of your service connected issues you listed and came up with this. Gonna need a bit more information to help you fight this. First off are you within 1 year of separation? Do you have any other dyabilities? Is diabetes in your C file? I am not sure how they test for it, but I am almost sure during a blood test there would have been some evidence of this, and if they did not report it to you then that is a whole different issue

  9. You said you have PTSD and suffer from panic attacks, etc. I noticed from your profile that you don't have any s-c disabilities. Are you working on them or have you been denied? Are you receiving medical/professional help? I hope so; if not, ask for help and there are plenty of veterans on this blog that can help you thru the process. Now, as for your flight insurance policy, like everything we buy it is always "Buyer beware." Did you read the fine print on the contract. It doesn't count what a sales clerk told you verbally; it's about what is in the policy. It more than likely won't cover tha

  10. Yes in many instances veterans have received direct service connection on symptoms alone without official medical diagnosis for their illnesses incurred in military service according to my old reliable 2006 bible that is the NVLSP 1875 plus pages Veterans Advocate Manual for Disability Claims and published by Lexisnexis. See pages 108 to 109 in section 3.4.3.3. National Veterans Legal Services Program is an excellent legal advocacy service. Thanks to this then $250.00 set of two manuals including all VA laws and regulations I have won several claims and appeals over past 20 plus years fil

  11. https://www.va.gov/vetapp18/files3/1814284.txt The above resulted from a remand from the court. It represents two regular aid and attendance ratings becoming R1. I have several of them but this bookmark I was able to readily find and post. Although not sure if it is a precedent decision it shows it is possible to get to R1 on two SMC (l) ratings. It may depend on the judge but the court had already said it was possible and the board agreed and awarded the the two (l) ratings. VICDE
