  1. Finally awarded 100%. No P&T. 

  2. Present. Hopefully this year I can improve my health and get a correct dianosis. Happy New Year to you all!
  3. Welcome! I was a Sergeant in the Air Wing. I was an Aviation Maintenance Administrator so I know the paper side, though I somehow seemed to get involved in the maintenance side of things more often than the paper pushing. The deployment cycle was busy and wasn't entirely aircraft maintenance for us but we were fortunate for the most part. Glad you made it home in one piece. Semper Fi OIF July 2007 - Feb 2008 "Surge" Sep 2008 - Apr 2009
  4. I received my letter finally. They didn't address my claimed disabilities of degenerative disc disease or spinal stenosis at all. I have since filed a new claim for Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Tinnitus, and Hemorrhoids, asked for an increase for the Cervical Sprain and Migraines, and reopened my claim for GERD as it is in my STRs and VA treatment records. I know this will take some time, but the VA already has everything it needs to correctly decide claims on these things. I have documentation for everything claimed. In my opinion, and I'm not a rater so I can only speculat
  5. New guy here. OIF Marine Vet, VA Employee, 90%er. Fighting for that 100% scheduler, would still like to work while I can.
  6. I'll read the MRI reports during the week to see what they day. Spondlyosis rings a bell.
  7. Thank you. I have an additional 20% that is secondary. Does that get added?
  8. PEB/Medical Discharge August 30, 2013 Filed claim October 2013 for increase and additional claimed illnesses Rated 70% October 2014 with 4 deferred ratings, C&P exams scheduled Rated 90% December 2014 I continue to get a non-service connected rating for GERD. I'm under the assumption that this is a presumptive illness for OIF/OEF. Correct me if I'm wrong. It's in my VA medical record that I take medication for GERD.
  9. I just started working at the VA as a VSR in the Pension Management Center. Fortunately I have nothing to do with Compensation. That also means I'm left with a few questions about comp. Since I'm an employee, my records are pretty much locked from my viewing. I can basically only see service information. I got out of the Marine Corps Aug 31, 2013. As of yesterday, I'm rated a combined 90% as follows: 50% Post Traumatic stress disorder 30% Colitis, nonspecified 10% Chronic strain, right hip 0% External hemorrhoids 20% Lumbar L5-S1 herniated disc status post lumbar spine surgery
