  2. 63 SIERRA, Great news! So happy to hear everything worked out for you. Now take a break and enjoy your windfall. Again, congratulations! Proudvet
  3. Hello onrope, When I was getting ready to retire from USN, I claimed headaches also on my DBQ and it took (2 1/2years) of going to the VA Hospital to finally get a diagnosis of my "Headache Cliam"m (1) I first spoke to a speech therapist, (2) Had to talk to a shrink, (3) Talked to a VA Medical Doctor, then final was given an MRI which showed I had "Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus", due to being in an electrical explosion in 1988, 22 years before I retired. I had complained about headaches and no-one, would put 2 and 2 together until after I retired. I was finally operated on to have a shunt installed in my brain to relieve all the fluid build-up caused from that explosion. Keep searching in your medical records and see if anything could have caused you to have these heaches and attach all your medical evidence for a claim I did all this on my own and eventually rated 80%. I hope you don't give up, just keep looking for that needle in the hay stack, you'll find it, if it's there.

  6. Congradulations. Now sit back for alittle while and possibly go on a small relaxing vacation.
  7. Haven't been on here for awhile. Been working alot and trying to stay focused. PTSD has really gotten the best of me, but taking it one day at a time. Some days I have to give every bitof courage to get up out of bed and go to work. The Headaches from the Normal Hydrocephalus seem to be getting worse, especially when it gets real cloudy and overcast. I hear it's from the low atmospheric pressure that causes my shunt to act up. Oh well at least I'm still alive. Have a blessed month all, and "Happy Mothers Day" to all the moms out there. Best Regards, Proudvet
  8. Congratulations on the win! Now sit back and enjoy your success. George
