  1. Needed to see a neurologist for my migraines. Made an appointment with the local hospital neurologist. I was assigned to a nurse practitioner, she seemed to be very knowledgeable and also worked with sleep apnea. My question is how does the VA looks at that when you're filing a claim. Should I keep her or should i find me a MD?

      I would keep her to start your migraine treatment.  Yes you will probably see the neurologist after she gets your treatment started.

  3. I suffered a back injury while in the ARMY years ago. My back has continuously given me problems. I am SC for DDD and was wondering how can i go about service connecting Diabetes 2? Any information or case studies will be of great help.
  4. @Gastone can you give any idea about my range of motion from my DBQ. will I get a rating on that> Thanks for your input.
  5. @Gastone Thanks for clearing that up for me. So the numbness was addressed. Thanks for your expertise.
  6. @Gastone Thanks for responding I'm not sure how or if it would. I compared this C&P to my last C&P and noticed that the boxes weren't checked on the recent one. Do you think it would make a huge difference? Reading my DBQ now as is what do you think. will I get a rating in your opinion?
  7. @Buck52can you try again please?@broncovet and @Gastone do you think I will receive any percentage? 2b.Does the Veteran report flare-ups of the thoracolumbar spine (back)? [ ] yes [ x ] No *** Cand P Dr. never asked this question........ I have Dr. visits to back my evidence. 8a. Numbness Right lower extremity [ x ] None Left lower extremity [ x ] None *** Not sure why he marked NONE I'm just wondering if he reviewed my medical notes he would've notice that is one of my chief complaints.

  9. I had a Comp and Pension for my tinnitus.Can someone enlighten me. My C&P was over rather quickly.


  10. @buck and Eli thanks for your responses. I tried calling the Ellis Clinic all day yesterday, but got no answer. I will try again Monday. Thanks again.
  11. @Eli, how did the IMO/IME work out for you?
  12. Thinking about using Dr. Ellis from The Ellis clinic can anybody give me some reviews. Thanks
  13. i've been to the va doctors on several occasions with severe back pains. I've noticed that they never assigns bed rest but will give me a note for time off from work. Can I use the Dr's note for time off under their claim to help me when I file for an increase? Or do I just ask for bed rest.
  14. Is there a way I can service connect my diabetes and my sleep apnea. I have been suffering from sometimes severe back pain from a service related injury. How can I connect the two if was never mentioned in my service records. I injured my back while on a rotation at NTC. After injuring my back i was on a profile for the last 16months, before they Chaptered me for weight control (218lbs). Before my injury I never had a problem with my weight. when I finally got my c-file i learned that i was up for the MEB, but they chaptered me before that. Again, how can I sc diabetes and sleep apnea?
  15. Thanks for the response broncovet. Its all over my smr's and my progress notes. If he viewed them he would've known that.
