  1. Thanks for the responses. I'm wondering: 1. can i submit any new evidence at this time? 2. will the V.A. pay for my attorney?
  2. Hadit family, can anyone give me some advice on how to handle this Appeal process. I recently looked on VA.GOV and noticed this. how do I prepare to win?
  3. I've been seeing my PCP at the V.A. for several years. He now's my medical history with my severe lower back pain. He advised me i should request another C&P for my lower back ( 20% ) My PCP has increased meds, filled out my FMLA form, given time off from work. Pain injections in my back from Pain clinic. I've been out on medical leave from my job ( Police Officer ). I am unable to continue my job as a police officer due to my back conditions. My job wants to get rid of me because i am restricted duty for my SC back injury. My job har recommened me for disability retirement, but me PCP say
  4. I haven't used him yet, but i was wondering have you gotten a price from his office for a IMO/IME?
  5. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. @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.
  9. @Gastone Thanks for clearing that up for me. So the numbness was addressed. Thanks for your expertise.
  10. @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?
  11. @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.

  14. @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.
  15. Thinking about using Dr. Ellis from The Ellis clinic can anybody give me some reviews. Thanks
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. Thanks for the response broncovet. Its all over my smr's and my progress notes. If he viewed them he would've known that.
  19. 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?
  20. 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?

     

  21. Gastone been gone for a minute and when i returned the website has changed. i would greatly appreciate you looking over my things for my sa claim. I was not dx in the military. i had a sleep study done by a private neurologist and was given a cpap machine. can you give me some insight
  22. Thanks for the info pwrslm. What I failed to mention was that I'm SC for my back already ( 10 % lumbar strain ) since 1997. I was filing for an increase due to my back getting worst. At the time of my C&P my back was really bothering me really bad. I could barely bend or move, However after reading this report it is clearly obvious that he didn't listen and write down all the facts. It's alot of things that were left out. This VA C&P is a joke.
  23. I recently completed my C&P exam on 3/14/17. Can anyone give me some insight on this. Some information I relayed to the Dr. apparently went in one ear and out the other. Any information is helpful. ThanksDBQ ( back ).pdf
  24. thanks broncovet and buck for your reply. My evidence that I want to have noted is dr. visits that the DAV failed to upload with my FDC .
