  1. I understand. I read how they assign % on heart disease, I would definitely qualify for 100% but I would have to go through the compensation program.. we all know that can be a toss up even though the evidence is in my records
  2. With everything that I have and have gone through, would I qualify for ischemic heart disease???
  3. Yea it’s been tough, I’m not sure I would know what feeling good would truly feel like. to top it off I struggle to breathe and catch my breath with very little exertion. Examples walking to my mailbox and back (25 yds) each way, walking to the back of my house, back then put on my shoes.
  4. Yes the stroke is secondary to my CAD or hypertension, I haven’t filed a claim on it. I read my medical record at va hospital and there are several problems that I’ve had or being treated for that reads (sct 000000) such as loss of spleen, a fibralation, heart stent, aortic valve replaced, cerebrovascular accident etc. I assume the sct stands for service connected treatment, I’m assuming they are secondary since I haven’t been rated on these issues. yes I have a loss of use of my hand, foot, shaking, dizziness, I really have to think about what I’m trying to talk about, memory etc,these issues are not everyday, they seem to run in spells but they are becoming more frequent. Friends and family help out when needed.
  5. I have a appointment with my pc doc to fill out my AA/HB form, if he says that my stroke has affected my grip, coordination, etc. and it has affected my brain. Can the va award me other ratings of SMC ‘s if his statements fit these severities?
  6. My rating is 80% combined and I get paid at 100% because of I/u p&t. Are you saying that I don’t qualify for a&a or smc with my rating, even if my doctor gives me favorable answers on form 21-2680
  7. According to my vso I should have no problems apply for a&a due to the effects my stroke had on me mentally, this what he has noticed by dealing with me. I haven't applied for anything since my last rating in 2005. since this rating I have had a stroke(tia) with afib now, conjestive ht failures, ht stent, aortic valve replaced (ht).
  8. Thx brocovet. yes i have a 22-2680 for my pc md to fill out. I'm not only trying to get A&A I'm also trying to get the highest rating for (smc) that I qualify for. i get paid 100% but I'm considered 80% pt. sc and they awarded me I/u pt because of all my ratings, my highest rating is 60%. am I going about this the wrong way???
  9. Does the va associate tbi with a stroke?? im sc for cad,hypertension & copd. I've suffer from post stroke problems such as comprehensive of what I read, saying exactly what I'm thinking, remembering things the brain issues are constant. I also suffer from balance issues, right hand shaking & use of hand, etc. these things are not Constant only a couple times a week, they are much worse if I get upset. do I have any recourse with (smc) other than A&A??
  10. The first time I applied for csa they denied me saying that it wasn't sc. But all of my new evidence is in my va med records.
  11. Thanks for the research doc 25. i see in the csa rating that long term csa can cause major pulmonary and heart problems. i have copd been diagnosed with chd several times, va give me a cpap for my csa, hypertension and leaking aortic valve in my heart they just replaced. According to my heart surgeon he's surprised the Navy missed it. I guess I would qualify for 50% or 100% with these issues.
  12. I was diagnosed with central sleep apnea and given a bipap machine for this, according to the examiners my heart just quits beating, this test and diagnosis was from a va doctor. i requested a rating for sleep apnea and was disapproved as non service connected. I have a Sc rating of 60% cad, sc rating 10% copd, sc rating 10% hypertension, sc rating 10% anxiety disorder. I have also been diagnosed with thrombosystosis, loss of spleen due to splenic infarction (spleen stroke), heart sttack, heart stent, aortic valve replaced. Would my central sleep apnea be secondary to all of these blood problems that I have experienced???
  13. Please bare with me, since my stroke I don't always understand or convey things properly.i did electronics and electrical work in the Navy so I had to be a little sharper than I am now. i understand that I can only be rated one rating (s,m r1 etc.) at a time. My question is once my MD fills out my 21-2680, should my vso request a&a or should he file (ask) for a certain letter on the Smc chart that best fits the answers on my 21-2680 or will the VA RATERS assign a smc rating on thier own??
  14. If u get A&A can you qualify for smc ratings other ?? my vso gave me a 21-2680 to have filled out and bring back to him, so he can file a form requesting a&a. If I'm approved will they give me ratings that I qualify for or just a&a?
