Single Status Update
Good Day! I filed for compensation for sinusitis(allergies,headaches),sleep apnea, for lower back in 2016 only to be denied. When I applied I had military &civilian medical records that i wanted to be submitted but the VSO told me it wasn't necessary( that the VA would already have evidence needed) to support the claim. While in basic training in 03/86 i was hospitalized for acute respiratory disease(possible meningitus) with meninditus symptoms( military medical records), i have been having headaches since then.I was a Petro. Supply Spec. I was treated several times during service for upper respiratory problems(nose bleeds,sore throat,headaches,stuffy nose) from 1986-88. I was exposed to diesel exhaust,gas vapors, dust. I have 3 surgeries due to my allergies, issued CPAP by VA,9can't use CPAP because sinus situation so bad), i also have developed gastro. disease i2 years ago(haven't filed for). What do you think chances are for getting compensation for service connection? I hired an Accredited Attorney. 1 1problem-can't get statement from ex wife about snoring back in 87-90. , Ihave statement from parent"s about nose bleeds and snoring.
