  1. Hello All,I have a question about IU. My husband had an appeal since 2014 for IU and sleep apnea as secondary for PTSD. I just checked vets.gov and it shows that they issue a statement of the case on June 22, 2018 for his sleep apnea issue (which it was denied), however they granted his IU. I went to check ebenefits and his disabilities still show 80% but his benefit summary letter shows he is been rated at 100%. However, the currently award amount did not change or reflected the 100% amount. My question is, how long would it take for the summary letter to reflects the actual award amount (whi
  2. In my case, I was denied service connection for my knees and back pain in July 2015. The rationale they provided was that even though, I have medical treatment records from service showing that I suffered from knees pain and back pain, the VA could not grant service connection disability just on the basis of pain. I have service treatment records and post-separation treatment records from the VA medical medical center, however this was not enough as I didn't have a medical diagnosis for these conditions. If I am understanding this correctly, this means that I should be granted service co

  6. I submitted a claim with a few new disabilities and to reopen the following disabilities shown below that were non service connected (as rated in 2007).

  7. Got it. Thanks for the advice. I will get the letters and will write a statement. My claim stills under review so I think I have time to submit this evidence. Thank you so much for your advice :)
  8. Hi thanks for your input. Yes I can two or three per week, it varies. But I was very clear when I told him than I also use Excedrin because I feel like it works better on me sometimes and he neglected to add that statement to the notes. The problem with the medication is that I do not take every single day I only take them when I get the attacks.
  9. Tell me what you guys think. I told the examiner that I take my medication as needed when I get my migraines and for the duration of the attacks and that I also take Excedrin. But he got nerves to insinuate that I lied about my medications!! and then look at my results. He marked less than frequent attacks when I specifically told how often I get the attacks. The examiner was very rude... 1. Diagnosis ------------ Does the Veteran now have or has he/she ever been diagnosed with a headache condition? [X] Yes [ ] No [X] Migraine including migraine variants ICD code: 784.0 Date of di
