I can’t work if I’m getting Unemployability, right? No, in fact, unemployability does not always mean that a veteran is not working.

Does this mean that I get no back pay - as I didn't receive any back pay - just got the approval from Veterans Law Judge, Board of Appeals. Should I appeal the fact that I received no back pay?
Any help would be appreciated!

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!
