  1. Thank you to everyone for responding and providing me with help. Reason for Descision: We have assaigned a 10 percent evaluation for your migraine headaches based on Characteristic prostrating attacks averaging one in 2 months over the last several months. A higher evaluation of 30 percent is not warrent for migraine unless the evidence shows characteristic prostating attacks occuring on an average once a month over the last several months. When you mention C-file would that be my VA medical records? If so I enclosed them with my NOD highlighted with the Doctors stating that my migraines does not allow me to work if that is not my c-file how do I attain it?
  2. I recently received my letter of denial for increase on the grounds that I needed to have more than one prostating migraine in 2 months and even though my VA medical records never mentioned the word prostrating the Neurologist does say on multiply times that the patient is unable to work during attacks and he has also stated that I needed to lye down in a dark room. The only problem is that it is a teaching hospital so each time I see a different resident and maybe a different attending also. I have become a test dummy for the Neurologist because I have been on multiple medications and have failed therapy but I still try. My attacks can be from 2-5 headaches a month with each one lasting at least 2 days the only reason I haven't lost my job is that the neurologist filled out a Family Medical leave paper which allow me to miss periods at work without being fired but believe me my job is ready to dismiss me if they can find the loophole. With everything in my medical records I thought I would at least get 30%. Can anyone help me understand what to do? At the C&P the ARNP asked me all the questions and said that she could only write what was in my doctor notes the only thing I could think is that she read the resident notes without reading the attending notes. I have sent back my NOD already highlighting what the attending notes say in my VA medical records for the last two years. Also I have no idea what the C&P notes say because they did not send me that and I can not find it in my medical records. Please Help
  3. When I asked the Neurologist about filling out the DBQ he stated that he doesn't fill that out that it is up to the rating board to decide. I have already filed the NOD with the hopes that someone would actually review my medical records this time.
