    I have been doing a lot of pondering on this and I still believe that I need to be tested for the TBI. I also believe that the opinion given by doctor on my headaches are in error as he never inquired as to the severity of the attacks.

    Queston About Siezure Disorder

    I got my award letter last Friday 10% hearing 10% tinnitus and 10& seizure. Which I thought was very strange as there has been no testing done for TBI. I was also rated 0% for TBI and Headaches. There was no neuro tests of any kind. Interview with an MD was extent of my exam.

    This is my first claim, actually I was pleased to get the ratings that I got. My TBI was in March of 1966 and I was surprised to get service connection I would have liked to have seen 10% down the line. If that would have been the case I would have been at 50%.

    Queston About Siezure Disorder

    You have to remember I was discharged in the 60,s at that time there were no discharge physicals no info on how to file a claim or any other benefits talked about. All I wanted at that time was to get as far away from the Army as I could get. I still have a major problem understanding why I wasn't put out on a medical.

    Queston About Siezure Disorder

    There is no question the seizures are caused by the brain injury I spent a total of three months in different Army hospitals. They were trying to figure out the cause of the seizures and all the testing was aimed at a brain injury. The profile that I had basically stated that I could not drive carry a weapon wear a gas mask or wear a steel pot. This was a little hard as I was a heavy equip. operator. After all of this I was shipped back to the states to a company that was building for ship to Nam. I trained these people on a lot of diff. machines and I was not shipped with them. Once I got back to the states I went on sick call and spoke to a so called doctor I wanted to get treatment for the seizures and the headaches I was given Darvon and no med for the seizures. I asked this doc if you are not going to give me med for the seizures drop the profile which he would not do. I was in a car accident and exited through the windshield striking the dashboard on the way out. I had a broken jaw and minor cut to the scalp. The accident happened around mid night and I woke up in a dentist chair around 9:00 am the next morning. They wired my mouth shut and I was put on a ward in the hospital. I ha d my first seizure the second night I was in the hospital. Then all fun began all the tests they could perform were done and six weeks later I was discharged from the hospital after more seizures. Returned to my unit and was shipped to a hospital in Germany for more testing EEG and every test they could come up with. All of this should be documented in my med. records I was discharged on my regular ets date in 1968 Not a med discharge. I became a drifter for many years and have avoided doctors as much as I can, have had seizures since discharge, but ride them out on my own. I am a loner as being around a lot of people make me nervous. I worked as a bodyman for years as it is a profession that allows you to work on your own. This is another reason that I avoided doctors in most states if you have a seizure it is a 6 month suspension of your lic. and I could not afford that. I have been very lucky as I have never been injured during a seizure. And have never been taken to hospital for one. I am retired now and have been doing a lot of thinking about this problem and how I was treated by the military after my accident. now I believe it is time for them to step up and help me out
  8. I received a TBI in March of 1966 was in the hospital two days and had a Grand Mal seizure. I was put through all of the tests available at that time. I was sent to nuero ward in Germany and retested all the same tests and a few more. I was released from hospital with a med. profile that basically said I could do nothing. The tests never `showed a problem, but the seizures continued. I have had headaches and a few other problems since discharge in 1968. Do you think I have a claim?
