  1. So I had 3 migraine exams two of the first ones were done combined to my residuals of a tbi rated at 100% so the doc wasn’t to focused on my daily migraines as being an issue either one. So annoyed in 2018 after having been rated at 0 for 8 years I went to my newly filed claim appointment for an increase went with my evidence of 8 years of treatment records of Va heAlth records the doctor was LHi an apologized for the VA inadequate exams and said this will be easy I was there for 20 minutes 2 weeks later 50%..... the va won’t give the highest for migraines out front unless you do the research
  2. I went through the same hoops but of course I was 0 percent for 8 years before they made me 50% by going to my LHI appointment and not getting my appointment together with my TbI residuals. At least they ordered a second one that was my good sign....
  3. I wonder that means us P and T vets with kids in school may get one?
  4. Anyone know how to get your current disability list on either website? I’m on an iPhone i Have figured out you can get to it you going to payments information and the then click on additional benefits, but other then filing for an Increase to see the list and The decision letter isn’t there one you can download?found it so I’ll post it for iPhone users in VA.gov under benefits menu....
  5. They are getting better with moving quicker on IU claims so as to not create more of a financial hardship that would ensue if you were not given IU. LHI is great at moving quickly for us and this is why you have an exam but just don’t go an say I’m fine and I’m working at your appointments or you’ll be denied IU. State why you feel like you can’t work back up with medical evidence, are you currently working? This is one question they will ask the C and P exam questions are somewhere on here to review.... also as I did file for SSDI if your unable to work having one claim for the VA won’t expe
  6. I would have been at my RO raising hell over a year to implement call the whitehouse hotline at least they get you an answer you deserve...
  7. Headache and migraine 0% for 6 years and then bam got my first migraine exam solo not with a tbi review and wow 50% keywords (prostrating headaches) I didn’t even know what it was in 2010 until after my first time exam so I said I don’t know that’s what got me the 0% but then two increases along with my tbi increases they increased my tbi to 100% but said 0 for my headaches. Then my first solo exam I was increased to 50% almost 8 years later....just because this time I went prepared and made sure it said prostrating headaches at least 4 times a week. It’s wasn’t a lie I live off of grunt candy
  8. So A trick I learned back in 2016 when your claim has closed and no updates visible and checked everywhere but your positive it will be positive results. Two options I have tried this in a couple years, people may hate this but file a new claim for an increase there when it shows you what your ratings are currently it will either show your increase or new disability or it will look funny And show unable to process it. And then instead of going through with the claim delete the application as if you changed your mind....
  9. Where’s it located at it at? Is it still awaiting the RO to certify it to the board or is it in the black hole at the Appeals management center? If so I found a number for the AMA I’ll have to find it’s been few years that I used and got an immediate update or hell even try the whitehouse hotline and yes I’ve used them twice and got positive results
  10. Yes I did sorry such a late response
  11. Crazy read I never even thought about this PH shit even after my sTBI and the Lod which I have and being put on Light duty for almost two years before deploying to Afghanistan in 2009. But I wish after the PTSD from my sTBI I had afterwards I could file for it... but I assumed it was only for Those shot or dead like my High school buddy RIP Miniger
  12. Like the previous answer I was made 100 P and T at the age of 30 so please understand if I wasn’t xxxxxx from my sTBI I be on the same boat I kept trying to work while I kept filing for 6 years 2010 to 2016 before wait what my appeal granted I’m disabled then the next year SSA went thru your disabled. SSDI was approved before The VA went thru let me repeat if you think you shouldn’t be working maybe you shouldn’t, best advice get a vocational analysis by a doctor and file for IU. While you wait file for ssdi bet SSA bets the VA like it did for me.... Just FYI I didn’t even know what the xxxx

    Unfortunate like Buck said I had this issue bc i have two children under 6 years old so I had to fight tooth and nail to get insurance for them. But my spouse still works and she worked something out with her job. Not the answer you were looking and wasn’t for my spouse but my answer was like hell you have Champva you won’t die: lol not a good answer to my wife I paid for it mentally
  14. I can say with certainty that they missed something in the first one, the second, and third. And after 4 exams for my tbi I was going crazy. But in my case the doctor failed to report something....
  15. Roger just hate the feeling They can if they wanted take my family’s rights away
  16. My effectiveness on my dates are less then sub par as I suck at understanding my effective dates and always have a panic attack of them going away I was awarded IU PT back in Nov 2016. And then instead of seperation of my ptsd it was lumped in with my tbi shortly after raising my rating for my tbi from 2010 from 70 fri to 100 And still keeping my P and T on my rating. So since my tbi was at 70 since 2010 is that protected from dropping below that of when they lumped it with ptsd in 2018 I have to wait to 2028 for no more fear? Last question my P and T was granted in 2016 is that protected ever
  17. Like I said I theres way to many variables these days he’ll I filed a new claim recently was denied what I filed for but somehow they granted me 10% for painful scars since psoriasis is hereditary. Call it whatever they want it’s the same scars..
  18. It’s all depends on a couple of things is their a hardship flag on your file...
  19. Not long I think 10 working days is what it’ was in 2016 when I waited. And yes it does if it seems slow they could be getting the new C and Ps ordered or outsourcing them...
  20. So usually yes ebenefits has always been accurate with what is denied and or rated at but can’t wait to read this decision packet. Psoriasis was denied but they instead gave me an additional rating for painful scars for 10% not sure how that is even possible?
  21. So after my tela-exam it went to prep for a decision was there for 5 days. Bounced back to evidence gathering today But the estimated completion date know says July. 12 2020. I remember this would happen all the time I’ve had it bounce to different stages two days in a row..... but we will see
  22. That’s what occured I believe except in 2016 they made me go to three in one year and two ptsd reviews. Yet in the end they said ptsd was a symptom in of my TBI and said it was 100% P and T funny I was given SSdI before they finally made that VA decision but instead of an EED of my claim in 2010 they said it was dated the day they did my reviews.
  23. Well for one they kicked the can about service connection until then and used the C and P from 2010 in 2016 when service connected to give the rating then they ordered new tbi reviews and Raise it when they granted the service connection in 2016 and not when I filed in 2010 and the P and T until my attorney sent an appeal, which never made it there bc a month later the RO said the evidence says it is P and T so we can just award it instead of sending it to the BVA I was happy for years that I got it right finally but now I’m looking at it with my wife who was in school starting in 2014 and gra
  24. True I’m just thinking the we’re just working on the back log for appeals and most exams could be done virtual if they had to be, a Come out way better then they used too...
