  1. Sounds good what percentage are they reccomending it be raise?
  2. I am a PTSD/MST survivor and I too have FIBROMYALGIA interesting I never thought of it being connected to PTSD. I guess because FIBROMYALGIA is a nerve condition after doing research on it perhaps it can be service connected or aggravated. If I were not 100 P&T I would definitely file a claim. Goodluck keep us posted
  3. Guys I am pre 911 if I apply for caregiver will I have another VA Comp exam or can I use my Private Dr. Unique11128
  4. Yes, The effective date is the date I filed. So yes it was correct. Thanks everyone! As James Brown says "I feel good" Unique11128

    SMC S??

    I was just rated today 100 PTSD P&T I already was rated 60 for other conditions not related to PTSD and the rater without me filing for it granted me SMC S1 ..So if you have 100 plus 60 percent in multiple disabilities he should be good.. Btw how much is SMC S1 per month?
  7. I am so excited to share the outcome of my appeal. I am 100 PTSD and 60 for other service connected disabilities. I was also awarded SMC S 1 housebound. Not sure how much HB pays. I am so happy it's been a long time coming. I want to thank each and everyone of my HADIT family members for all of your support. NEVER LEAVE A SOLDIER BEHIND! Unique11128
  8. Dajoker12 I was granted at the BVA for Ptsd/Mst I My sleep disorder (Rapid eye movement and acting out my nightmares ) breathing disorder was diagnosed at the Va and issued a CPAP machine by the Va. I had a Nexus/Imo with the rationale to support the opinion done from a Private mental health Doctor. The Bva remanded the sleep disorder and required me to attend a Comp exam with a General Doctor. I attended the exam only for the Doctor to tell me. She was not qualified to do the exam because she was not a mental health Doctor. She said the Va asked her if my sleep disorder was secondary to my already SC for Asthma. I had the Imo and nexus letter with me to show that its SC to PTSD she refused to read. She completed the report and said not SC to Asthma. I'm not sure why Asthma was even asked of the Comp exam doctor to opinion. 1. What are my options 2. How is REM breathing disorder rated. 3. I do think I also have sleep apnea although I did not experience the event at the Va sleep study . Can I have a sleep study done at a private facility using my on insurance. Will Va accept if I'm Diagnosed. Thank you
  9. Fearless The best part about this you have been SC. I am a MST survivor from 24 years ago i just got SC for PTSD/MST. Do not give up Please! That's what they want you to do. Making sure you get what's entitled is not wasting your time. I think with the right Doctor IMO you MAYBE able to get a higher rating but it's hard to say because I need to see the Comp exam. Stay strong! Unique11128
  10. Fearless Can you redact your personal info and upload the actual Comp exam?
  11. Born2dothis Can you upload the Comp exam remove your name and ssn. It's hard to advise if we can't see the Comp exam. Unique11128
  12. Keep the faith most of us have been where you are. I have one advise get a IMO for every denied claim. Good luck Unique11128 Ocean bound How is claim going? I hope all is good! Unique11128
  13. Bluebonnie I could be wrong but is sounds like you may need more development..meaning the rater may need more evidence to grant or rate the claim. Good luck! Unique11128
  14. Broncovet I did speak with AMC he said they now see the nexus letter in the file but I still need to have a Comp Exam. He said even though the VA did the sleep study and issued me the CPAP. I never had a official va exam for service connection. I did not know there was a Comp exam for sleep apnea. Unique11128
  15. Update I was approved for PTSD at the board i have been placed in a National que Waiting for the rating now. The sleep apnea is remanded even though I provide a private Doctor's Nexus and rationale connecting sleep apnea to Ptsd. There was no mention of the nexus or rationale in the the boards decision. When I called amc I was told there were missed by mistake and now they have me scheduled for a Comp exam with a General MD for the cause this week. Despite them looking in the record and seeing the nexus and rationale was in the file before my appeal went to the BVA basically they missed it. I hope this is not a development to deny Unique11128
  16. That sounds like the Va! Thanks for responding guys. Happy New year to you all
  17. Does anyone know if we receive interest on our retro back pay after we win our claims
  18. Johnny drama, I used a Dr. B Valette in Colorado not sure of the cost. I hope this information is helpful. Unique11128
  19. Vetquest I filed the TDIU/PTSD originally before the IMO private Dr. or Va comp exam. I am not currently rated100 scheduler. I have just recently been granted by the BVA for PTSD. I was trying to cover both bases if I don't get the 100 scheduler. So because the DRO didn't include the TDIU in the RAMP APPEAL it was not addressed at the board. So unless I'm incorrect the BVA would have granted the TDIU and once it went to the ARC. If the ARC decides to rate me 100 scheduler then the TDIU will be moot. I'm asking because I'm not sure. Does anyone have a opinion.
  20. Johnny Drama Yes, I filed it secondary to PTSD I had a nexus letter from a Private Dr. It was not denied but remanded meaning they want more information i guess they want me to see a Va Comp doctor even though the Va did the sleep study and gave me CPAP machine. I'm actually more concerned with them not including my TDIU in the Ramp even though I was told it was in the Ramp..They acknowledged they made a mistake by not including the TDIU when they decided my appeal...I was told today they will fix it. I'm not sure how or who when etc. I'm sorry to hear you were denied get a private Dr to give you a nexus letter and pray. Unique11128
  21. I filed a RAMP APPEAL (HLR) in April 2018. I was denied so I filed another appeal to the BVA in August 2018 . So I recently recieved a call that the BVA Remanded the sleep apnea to ARC but granted My PSTD/MST appeal. I also filed for TDIU for the PTSD. I was told that the Regional office did not address the TDIU which was filed with the PTSD. So I'm being told by ARC the Regional office was emailed and I informed to address the TDIU. Can anyone share their opinion on what to expect. I meet the 100 schedule but filed the TDIU just in case. Can Regional office award or does it go back to ARC? Unique11128
