  1. Thank you all for the information it has been helpful, now just time to get back in line.
  2. My original claim for OSA was started in 2012, I finally received BVA Award on 8/2018 for 50%. My original IMO, and DBQ (see attached) also listed several other items as secondary/aggravated by OSA. I submitted a claim for these issues along with the original nexus letter and DBQ, all were denied. The Dr. is currently doing a letter for each item. My question is do I resubmit it as an NOD with DRO review or request a hearing? Or are there other options? Thank you in advance for any info you can provide. Denial was received prior to Feb 19, 2019 VA OSA Redone.docx

  10. Hello broncovet I had a couple of buddy letters stating how loud I snored when I was in service. Also had a great IMO from a Harvard PHD. sleep expert who has been working in the field for 30+ years testing Military Pilots, NASA personnel etc. The Dr. also listed 6 secondary problems with explanations, so I just filed for them as secondary this week. If you would like the contact info email me. Also I was discharged in 1975.
  11. Again thank all who post their stories it is a great help, that and a great IMO. I will continue to report as I move forward.
