  1. Submitted a claim for meniers increase and migraines secondary to meniers. Had a private, favorable dqb from my ENT doctor, too. Any idea what this means? I’m already connected for meniers and a list of other ear issues.
  2. Got it, I been through this before and after some learning/research, it came out in favor. Luckily, the doctor i went to through VA community care specializes in ETN and in particular, vestibular disorders. Since its community care its the doctor the va selected, so hopefully that holds some weight, too. I didn’t have a nexus done since its already service connected and meniers/migraines go hand and hand per his word. I also sent him my VA history which showed my diagnoses. There are some older notes which show my issues and symptoms on the va website.I guess i was just thinking it would be an easy, quick claim (if such exists) due to already being connected and treated for approx 1 year. Thanks for your information and opinion.
  3. Thanks for your response. My treatment notes are uploaded as far as new medications prescribed. Even with my dbq & doctor exam, they still go off of my doctors notes right? I recall something about probative value or tie goes to the vet? I could be wrong, though
  4. The forms say 2020 on them. There are much more forms but I only posted the ones that had the symptoms. Both dbqs are filled out and states his opinion in favor and that migraines are secondary to meniers, too. He is an otologist/neurologist, so he is the most quailed to discuss this topic. Currently I am only connected for The meniers
  5. I am already service connected for meniers disease, among many other ear problems. Yesterday my doctor filled out a dbq and it supports my meniers disease increase and secondary migraines to meniers. My question is, being already service for meniers and having attached dbqs, will I still have a va c&p exam? Also, per the paperwork, what would you say my rating should be?
  6. Yes, my c&p and buddy statement clearly showed a nexus, but they still denied it. The denial basically said because i never should have been given a c&p exam, so i was denied on an improper exam being given. Even with their own contracted doctor clearly diagnosing and agreeing with my personal physician. 2 nexuses and 2 dbqs, still denied, unbelievable.
  7. Hey, what was the outcome of this? As of two days ago, i received the same letter on Ebenny. Thank you.
  8. HLR 131 days and my informal conference was a few days ago. An error was found, as attached, and they say my new decision/% is addressed in the paper, but my vso was able to see the paperwork and it shows nothing. So my HLR worked and found there was a clear error. I hope the same outcome for others.

  10. understood, mine was just to fix someone else's mistake when there was a clear error. I got my conference at about 128 days, even with all favorable and clear stated ptsd paperwork. Good luck.
  11. Thanks, nothing further is needed and the claim had all needed documentation when it was submitted; which makes this even more annoying. The rater initially said a "c&p was never needed" but then their c&p exam confirmed the diagnosis and service connected it lol. There's our VA for you lol
  12. Hi, 130 days for Higher-level review currently, but my VSO had the HLR informal conference talk with the higher level reviewer on 7/24/20. Anyone have knowledge of the typical timeline after the HLR is conducted? VSO said " We did have a two way conversation; but you know the deal; she sounded very positive about service connection but could not come right out and say it!", so i'm hoping the outcome is as good as he made it sound! Thanks.
  13. Thanks, i hear the word "Peggy" a lot. Is that ebenefits # or something?
  14. Yesterday was 125 days of my higher-level review being submitted. I know they say it's an estimate, but the average days complete and pending in Dez Moines are 73 and 66, so i'm confused what's taking so long. The past 2 months have been A senior reviewer is taking a new look at your case. I originally submitted all needed paperwork per cfr 38 and all was favorable from both sides. Anyone have experience with this or why it is taking much longer? COvid seems hard to believe since they are working from home. I still receive the rest of my normal va operations as if they were open. Thanks.
