" how do i force them to include the FCA as they refuse to accept it as evidence?  "

You file a CUE on any decision that did not comply with the evidentiary requirements of the regulation above. ...38 USC 5109A.

We have considerable info here in the CUE forum and even some templates.

   Did the VA use a goinometer in the  C& P exam?

Do you have the results of that exam.   If so  did you scan and attach that in this thread already---if so I will try to find it.......this is a long thread.....

Hello everyone,

This question feels incredibly silly, but it's stumping me.

Would like to claim Migraine headaches due to TBI


Not currently rated for TBI


Not (currently) seeking anything related to the TBI other than migraines



 

Are the migraines secondary to TBI, or


Are the migraines directly service connected with TBI being the in-service event?



If the migraines are secondary to TBI, how does one ever get a current diagnosis of TBI, seeing as it's an event sort of thing? Or, how do you work around this? In other words, if I broke a bone ten years ago I wouldn't be able to get a current diagnosis of broken bone, thus there is no "broken bone" disability. I would claim the actual disability that exists today, but referencing the broken bone incident as the alleged in-service event and cause. I imagine this is how it works with TBI; claim the current disability but reference the TBI as the in-service event and show nexus between them.

Or, am I way off?

Thank you in advance!
