  1. Again thank you so much. But no I do not collect SSDI, nor applied because I am able to work but do have an official reasonable accommodation with my company because at points my Epilepsy might interfere with my work.
  2. Sorry i forgot to mention i did receive my denial letter and will link you to that post as I created a separate one. The above post has my letter in it. I cant begin to thank you enough for all the help you have provided.
  3. Just got back my ACE C&P DBQ report, and this general practice geriatrics doctor put on the forum three times that I have a confirmed diagnosis of Epilepsy from a neurologist as recent as December 2019. Final notes the geriatrics doctor left " The diagnosis of Epilepsy came from the veteran report himself but i cannot confirm based on physician notes in the records. Therefore, the only diagnosis I can definitively make is "Psuedoseizures" I contacted my senator and he put a review in. I also put an inquiry in online and over the phone to the White House. VES said they woul

Final notes the geriatrics doctor left " The diagnosis of Epilepsy came from the veteran report himself but i cannot confirm based on physician notes in the records.

  5. I also have at least 50 or so pages showing the progression from what they thought was pseudo seizures to my diagnosis of Epilepsy. I feel like the VES dr. looked at like the first couple of pages and just didn't care about the rest.
  6. Yes, Dr. Martins note was the letter assed as "New and Relevant". The was the confirmation of the diagnosis and treatment. I'm not sure if they ignored it? but because he back dated the diagnoses to the first episode it does look like it goes from epilepsy to PNES seizures. But letter in December should have cleared that up. Currently requesting a new set of PDF recorders for the full notes. Establishing a SMR connection shouldn't be too hard but 38 CFR 3.309 is clear any form of Epilepsy is covered within a year of separation. I was in the UTANG after my discharge until 01/01/2
  7. Currently the wait time in Cheyenne is 2 1/2 months, my appointment is in May. I pushed for presumption, but my civilian doctor said (in medical notes sent to the VA) that " Military medical records show an episode of syncope taking place in AUG of 2015. I am more then likely suspicious that this might have been the patient's first seizure as on boarding paramedics describe a state of unawareness and that patient was found on the ground".
  8. Hi, I received me letter today, and I was denied. This time the error is clear. The Doctor who preformed my ACE examine said my initial diagnoses was Epilepsy then proven to be pseudo seizures. Initially at the ER (and my week long hospitalization after) and for about one month after I was diagnosed with PNES and not epilepsy. However since I kept experience both petite mal and grand mal episodes and then Epileptic medication treatment began to WORK, I was diagnosed with Epilepsy. My doctor in my civilian record's back dated the diagnoses to the May when the first event occurred. I've att

  10. Berta, thank you for all the information. I expect the letter to arrive sometime tomorrow. Ill keep everyone updated.
  11. My service dates extended from 03/AUG/2015 -- 02/FEB/2019. Delpoyed locations were Qatar, with a forward to Bagram in 2017 then a 3 month in East Africa in 2018.
  12. Hi, I pushed for presumption, but my civilian doctor said (in medical notes sent to the VA) that " Military medical records show an episode of syncope taking place in AUG of 2015. I am more then likely suspicious that this might have been the patient's first seizure as on boarding paramedics describe a state of unawareness". Also ill bring up I was deployed several times in the 4 year period. So I keep hearing I shouldn't be as worried the Ebenefits not updating right away with a new rating, its just hard not to because for my two other rating its was updated on the same day.
  13. Well after reading everything, I feel like since I don't fall within the 5 categories of times serviced, (exe. Gulf War, POw etc). I might have been mislead by my VSO. Like I understand the Epilepsy is Chronic Presumptive but my service dates don't fit...
  14. Yeah, while I guess I really shouldn't put all my eggs into one basket but with all of my other ratings, after the VA said they sent the decision letter, Ebenefits reflected the new rating % on the same day, of course the pay out was a lot smaller so that could be the case. I'm by no means hopeful.
