Thank you Gastone. I do understanding that the bilateral factor is 10% of the rating and not 10% overall. Is it true that the max rating is 40% per extremity? How would that look if they rated me 30% for the flat feet condition..?
The evidence of my TBI (s) is based on my account and what I told them in 2009 when I exited from active duty, however, there is some evidence of the combat I was exposed to in my awards, and I have at least 3 buddies that I'm still in contact with that will write statements that they were there. I don't have any external damage or scarring, however, I was exposed to more than a dozen IEDs striking my 4 vehicle patrol with 4 of them hitting or within very close proximity to my vehicle. We hit so many roadside bombs that it rarely spiked our adrenaline towards the end. I was never treated as we did not sustain severe injuries, but I was semi-unconscious at least once, maybe twice.
I did read Berta's TBI post this morning and it seems like they are trying to figure it out. My MH provider was a NP from 2009-2015. I can tell you that I have been complaining of several conditions over the last 9 years without realizing how they may be related to TBIs, but the more I read, the more it makes sense. Is my "Award Letter" on ebenefits? Is it different from the document I uploaded? Thank you for your feedback.
