  1. Look up the medication side effects. More importantly, migraines are definitely secondary to PTSD and typically easier to prove. Anxiety and stress absolutely cause migraines. I would absolutely recommend you investigate that route before you try to claim it was caused by medication.
  2. Ebenefits is pretty accurate in my opinion. It does show an estimated completion date and in my experience, updates faster than VA.gov.
  3. Those documents should work. I submitted similar documents and was approved for various conditions. Good luck
  4. Yes. It took a little bit a time but as long as they get it fixed. That’s what matters.
  5. My case is finally complete. It took about a month but it was closed today. Ebenefits has been updated with correct dates so I'm anticipating a nice deposit soon. Thank you for all of your help. Victory!!
  6. Did you receive an answer yet? If still waiting on the letter, check ebenefits under disabilities. Good luck!
  7. You could submit a new supplemental claim with the evidence and outline to settle it or you could submit a CUE (Clear Undeniable Error). Berta could assist with a CUE. Keep us up to speed on how it goes.
  8. I had a similar thing happen to me. I had to submit a supplemental claim again to get the correct effective date for retroactive pay. I had to write a complete outline to show how they made a mistake. Good luck! It will take a month or two but they'll fix it.
  9. Just speaking from my experience and cannot attest to everyone else. In my experience, ebenefits has been 100% accurate; VA.gov, not so much. If it showed up there, that is at least what you have. I had almost an exact situation as yours. The physical injury is deferred for further review (prob another C&P exam) so your rating may be raised. In my opinion, you will probably receive a payment before your letter arrives. I have yet to get my letter in under 14 days. Time will tell. Let us know how it goes.
  10. I had submitted a FDC for a hearing condition and was close to being completed but I just saw they changed it to a secondary condition to migraines which pushed back the completion date almost 3 months. Has anyone else had this happen. Just curious. Here's my C&P exam.
  11. I'll let you know how it goes for me. I have 3 hours of testing coming up. Time will tell.
  12. I feel terrible for you. My symptoms are not nearly as severe as yours. Mine are frequent but are more of an annoyance for now. Dizziness when I stand up suddenly, random staggering without reason and nausea. Symptoms have been getting worse though. Cant wait to see what the future holds... Ughh...
  13. Does anyone have any experience with vestibular migraines? I'm currently rated at 50% for migraines and have been diagnosed with vestibular migraines as well. It is a vestibular syndrome involving disruption in their balance and/or dizziness that may occur prior to, during, after, or totally independent of their migraine event. Would this be able to be claimed as a different neurological condition than Migraines or would I have to just claim vertigo? Thank you for your help.
