  1. I filed a claim for Sleep Apnea secondary to my PTSD, which is service connected. I have been diagnosed from the VA as having sleep apnea, and given a CPAP to wear at night. I used Carpenter Chartered Law Firm to do the claim, but got this denial letter (attached is an excerpt). In it, it says "In the absence of other major risk factors such as obesity it would be reasonable to attribute OSA to PTSD as this is considered a risk factor for OSA from uptodate.com". My thought is that if both obesity and PTSD are considered risk factors, shouldn't it be a 50% chance that it could be either
  2. I definitely have the panic attacks, and they examiner did not even ask about them. Thanks for all the help. I will update this when I do appeal, but waiting for the BBE to come in as of now.
  3. Well I called DAV. The decision is they are keeping me at 30%. I really think they should have given an increase to 50%, so I may appeal it. Question, though, Can I schedule my own C&P exam at the VA and have that as new evidence for an appeal?
  4. Called the DAV. They are not changing the percentage or awarding any extra comp. Still at 30%.
  5. I just filed it myself. I guess I'll have to play the waiting game.
  6. That's great news! My claim status just moved to "Preparation for Notification" an hour or so ago. I'm hoping for some good news soon myself.
  7. Bupropion and duloxetine. The psychiatrist at the MHC told me that my memory issues are likely attributed to those and my ptsd. So at that point I decided to file a claim.
  8. I realize this is a couple of years old, but I am in the EXACT same boat. Claim status is "pending decision approval" now. I am hoping for the same result! Belated Congrats!
  9. I am currently rated at 30% for PTSD. I filed a secondary claim for memory loss, because the medications I am on for PTSD cause me a lot of memory problems. I had a C&P that I wanted to upload with this, but When I try to attach it says "You do not have any existing attachments.". Anyway, the claim status on ebenefits is currently "Pending Decision Approval", and I filed on 11/1/2018. I do not see a change in the VA Letters, or the Disabilities page. Has anyone else filed for memory loss secondary to PTSD, and I was wondering if someone could kinda guess what percentage t
