  1. Hi!  I  would like to know  what my chances for getting S C  for Sinusitis,headaches,sleep apnea claim.  While in Basic Training I was hospitalized for Acute Respiratory Disease(possible meningitis), later  after reaching my permanent party unit , I suffered nose bleeds,sore throat, headaches, sinus congestion(all in my medical records) after working  as a Petro . Supply Specialist. I was constantly exposed to fumes, vehicle exhaust,  and being splashed with fuel at times throughout my duties. I have had 3 operations related to Sinus condition,continue to suffer from headaches, diagnosed with sleep apnea 2 yrs. ago  after having these problems going back to 8/1986. My  former civilian ENT would not give me a Nexus for the sinus condition , he stated i needed to see a Pulmonary Specialist(which proved to be false).I have applied for SC,  and hired an VA accredited Attorney.

      I submitted a claim about 5 months ago and it just went into the  Preparation for Notification phase (mailing out a decision within days). But a day after that notification, I received an email scheduling me for a C&P exam perform by the QTC exam people  that the VA contracts. I wonder what up? My claim is about one step of being closed, and they want me to see a C&P now?

  2. Hi All!  Just asking, has anyone had any success using RAMP? I have received 2 notices from VA in reference to my Appeals. THANKS!

  3. Good Day!  I filed for compensation for sinusitis(allergies,headaches),sleep apnea, for lower back in  2016 only to be  denied. When I applied I had military &civilian medical records  that i wanted to be submitted but the VSO told me it wasn't necessary( that the VA would already have evidence needed) to support the claim. While in basic training in 03/86 i was hospitalized for acute respiratory disease(possible meningitus) with meninditus symptoms( military medical records), i have been having headaches    since then.I was a Petro. Supply Spec.  I was treated several times during service for upper respiratory problems(nose bleeds,sore throat,headaches,stuffy nose) from 1986-88. I was exposed to diesel exhaust,gas vapors, dust. I  have 3 surgeries due to my allergies, issued CPAP by VA,9can't use CPAP because sinus situation so bad), i also have developed gastro. disease i2 years ago(haven't filed for). What do you think chances are for getting compensation for service connection? I hired an Accredited Attorney. 1 1problem-can't get statement from ex wife about snoring back in 87-90. , Ihave statement  from parent"s about nose bleeds and snoring.
