  1. I have a rating for a strange ear disease that is 0% and won't go up without an increase in hearing loss. Is temporary hearing loss enough to get an increase? Its called "autophony." where I hear my own voice very loud and can hardly hear anything outside of my own head. Is this temporary hearing impairment enough to get an increase in rating from 0% or does the hearing test have to show the hearing loss? They rated this disease analogous to perforated ear drum. Does getting rated with a disease open up any type of special treatments you can get for the disease? Such as going to a specia
  2. Just found I was granted 50% and now stand at 90% overall. I'm thankful because for two decades this disability interfered with many things. I could hardly talk for 15 years and still have trouble at times.
  3. I started my first va disability claim in 2010. It was for sinusitis and rhinitis. I only had a few medical records documenting that I said I had sinusitis and rhinitis. The first doctor didn't agree it was from my service. So I didn't get the nexus. I appealed and it went back to the VARO for a review. After a year or so It came back and I put in for the BVA appeal. I got my C&P exam last year after a remand. recently I found out that everything I asked for was granted from VA.gov appeals history section. It says updates take one to two months. I don't know what ratings I got because
  4. I have an appeal at the BVA from a claim I started in 2010. It was remanded and I had to do a C&P exam last summer. The current wait list says about 25,000 appeals are ahead of mine. It appears to be going down about 2000 a month. I figure that means mine should be at the front of the line in about 12 months from now. Do you know if this timeline thing on VA.gov is accurate?
  5. I have been having a hard time simply getting email from my voc rehab counselor. After reminding the counselor multiple times I got the email for orientation and exploration phase. When I got the email the attached documents had errors. On the functional test document for my doctor the numbers were wrong(order went 1,2,3,5,4) and my gender was wrong. On another document a page was blank when it was supposed to have text on it. Then when I called the counselor for my first appointment the counselor says "Did we have an appointment today? Let me see if I have nothing else going on ri
  6. You're not less of a man for having PTSD. You're more of a man for admitting your problems and facing them. No one else has walked in your shoes. No reason to feel guilt anymore Buck. Forget everyone else's opinions. You have no need for their approval.
  7. My provider's name appears on the front of the letter where it can be seen by anyone. Isn't this a breach of veteran's privacy?
  8. Can MDMA "cure" PTSD? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/mdma-ecstasy-mdma-post-traumatic-stress-disorder-veterans-a8332561.html https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16499508
  9. The BVA said my medical record where it states I had a disability wasn't taken into account during my initial C&P exam. Then it says the BVA needs another C&P exam that takes that medical record into account and needs to know if it was more likely than not my disability was made worse or happened in service. How long you think it'll take for the local VA to set up the exam and do you think they'll set me up for C&P exams for things not requested by the BVA?
  10. I just got a remand on my appeal for a bad C&P exam. They said the examiner didn't review my service records. Does this mean the VA is going to reschedule me for a C&P exam and how long do you think this may take them? Also, do you think the VA will be trying to do C&P exam for other disabilities that have nothing to do with my appeal?
  11. I think they denied me because I don't have a voc rehab letter saying I'm unemployable. I was working as a security guard where all I had to do was sitting, walking a little, opening and closing doors for contractors doing construction. I figure their can't be a more simple job that that, but I had to quit because of the work environment. I don't want to try voc rehab because I don't see the point in it. I'm not wanting to go back to college and couldn't handle it and I'm unable to do physical labor or simply standing too long or sitting up too long. They gave me 60 days to appeal to the ALJ,
