    its hard to tell but as a matter of fact the first c p exam put it as direct service related not secondary.. On ebenefits its listed as secondary..

    SMC S??

    sorry pasted wrong ones first two c. Rationale: My opinion is based upon two factors. His medical records do not provide any correlation between his documented symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea and the development of anxiety and depression. In fact, his symptoms of anxiety and depression pre-dated the onset of his symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. The diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea was made in 2009. While he clearly suffered from undiagnosed symptoms of that disorder prior to that, his symptoms of depression and anxiety nevertheless occurred prior to the onset of his symptoms of a sleep disorder. Additionally, during the meeting today, it became my opinion that the veteran's anxiety and depression are not the result of his obstructive sleep apnea.

    Asknod here's the next question does this apply for smc l aid and attendance? If I won aid and attendance for depression would I get the half step for sleep apnea?

    dam the depression is secondary to sleep apnea? Well the hearing doc must of said something because vso said that the va has reffered me or something they want me to file bilateral hearing loss. But the tdiu is soley on the depression or that doesnt matter.

    My tdiu is based soley off depression then i have 60 VSO said i need a seperate one rated 60. I told him thats not correct and read his own information he copied and pasted to me about smc S. I copied the secetion that says disabilitiy or disabilities. It just closed so i'll have to wait for paper work and ready to fight them some more. The important thing to keep in mind here is that the disability for which you are receiving TDIU must be entirely separate from the second service-connected disability (or disabilities) rated at 60% or more
