  1. 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.
  2. @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.
  3. @Gastone Thanks for clearing that up for me. So the numbness was addressed. Thanks for your expertise.
  4. @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?
  5. @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.
  6. My visit was no longer than 10 minutes max. After reviewing the notes i noticed he left a few things out. Is this DBQ in my favor what or any percentage will I receive? C&P.pdf

  8. @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.
  9. @Eli, how did the IMO/IME work out for you?
  10. Thinking about using Dr. Ellis from The Ellis clinic can anybody give me some reviews. Thanks
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. Thanks for the response broncovet. Its all over my smr's and my progress notes. If he viewed them he would've known that.
  14. After going over my progress notes from c&p I noticed some answers to questions that had different answers that I gave. For instance he said i have tingling down my left leg and not my right leg. After seeing my medical records and knowing how both my legs feel I'm wondering why he said one leg and not both. I know i told him both legs experience about the same amount of pain. I was awarded 10% for my left leg and nothing for my right leg. How shall I confront this issue?
  15. NEEDING A LIL HELP WITH THIS NEW CLAIM. I'M TRYING TO SERVICE CONNECT MY SLEEP APNEA AND MY DM 2. WHEN I FIRST WENT INTO THE MILITARY I WAS VERY ACTIVE AND ATHLETIC. AFTER ABOUT 2YRS IN I SUFFERED A BACK INJURY WHILE DURING A ROTATION AT NTC ( CALIFORNIA ). FOR YEARS IT WAS MISDIAGNOSED AS A LUMBAR STRAIN. RECENTLY IT WAS CHANGED TO IVDS (DDS). 

     AFTER THE INJURY I WAS UNABLE TO DO ANY PT AND STAYED ON A PROFILE, SUBSEQUENTLY CAUSINGME TO BE DISCHARGED FOR WEIGHT STANDARD. YEARS PASSED  AND I'M GOING THROUGH MY C-FILE AND NOTICED THAT I WAS SCHEDULED TO BE MEDICALLY DISCHARGED. 

    MY QUESTION ISHOW CAN I GET MY DM2 AND SLEEP APNEA SERVICE CONNECTED WITHOUT HAVING IT IN MY SMR. I STARTED GAINING WEIGHT AFTER MY INJURY SO IS THERE ANYWAY I CAN SERVICE CONNECT THE TWO?
