  1. Thanks everyone, a lot of good information was given. I just have to see if I can actually fall asleep with it on, my biggest problem is falling asleep, I'm hoping it will tune out my tinnitus issues but I'm definitely not going to give up my wife and kids are too important.
  2. I was just diagnosed for sleep apnea OBSA by the VA and I have a follow up appointment I guess to get my CPAP machine. Does anyone have any insight on what to expect from this initial appointment?
  3. I have put on a lot of weight the past two years because I don't like to get out and leave the house much and I don't feel like doing much of anything. I'm thinking this has caused me to develop OSA. Can my psych doctor or doctor opinion my excessive weigh gain is due to my depression?
  4. I am secondary serviced connected 70% percent for MDD and Anxiety (Tinnitus can't sleep). I was recently diagnosed with OSA sleep apnea by a VA doctor (sleep monitor test) and my question is, if I were in the future to file for an increase for my MDD and Anxiety, could the VA reduce or terminate my compensation because of the Sleep Apnea diagnosis (OSA)?
  5. You should go see a PHD mental Health doctor tell him your symptoms and how your Tinnitus keeps you up all night. Your lack of sleep has to cause a depressive mood and anxiety, trust me my anxiety is terrifying and I know your tinnitus is preventing you from falling asleep and staying asleep if it is bad as mine. I was able to service connect anxiety and major depression disorder secondary to my 10% Tinnitus at 70%, so it can be done you just have to get an opinion from a Independent physiatrist and be very honest (don’t hold back) during your C&P exam.
  6. What can be done about a mental health social worker writing misleading information in your medical records? Questions you were never asked but they answered for you, statements you never made and contextual factors to your mental health that are the result (family problems, marital discord, lack of social support) of your conditions but it looks like they are saying this is what is causing it?
  7. Due to my tinnitus being very bad, I was awarded a 70% rating from the VA for anxiety and depression secondary to my tinnitus due to it keeping me from sleeping. I have started my counseling with VA social workers and psych doctors from the VA. I ask my VA primary care doctor does the VA offer any treatment for tinnitus and the answer was, "There is no treatment the VA offers for tinnitus, just wear ear plugs and stay away from loud noises". My question is why would a PA want to test me for sleep apnea to see if that is causing my sleep problems but I can't get treatment for what I know keeps
  8. Thanks everyone for your feedback, I am currently rated at 70% for MDD and just started getting service from the VA for about two months now. My meds were prescribed about a month ago. How do I get a copy of my last C&P exam and what information can I expect to find in myhealth in ebenefits?
  9. I'm service connect for MDD and I am currently virtually visiting the VA medical center, due to COVID. I was wondering if it is a good idea get more VA information added to my medical records before I apply for an increase? The VA doctor has already prescribed meds and they have no effect on my condition, I still have the same symptoms. My last award was in May 2020.
  10. Thanks for the clarification, it was a fully developed claim so all the treatment records, IMO diagnosis/nexus and in service records were supplied. That’s why I ask this question for fully developed claims.
  11. I was wondering if any of the vets out there can shed some light on a question I have about granted claims and denied claims (Fully Developed Claims). Does it seem as if your claim is moving fast under 90 days for completion, that you are or denied or granted the claim most of the time? Does it seem as if your claim was delayed during the Gathering of Evidence but then completion over 120 days, your claim was denied or granted? Share your experiences and thoughts. Does a speedy Gathering of Evidence phase (30 days or less) result in more grants or denials? Does a delayed Gatheri
  12. Will the VA approve your application to add dependents the same day you are award 30% disability or more? (Or) will they approve it at the Preparation for decision phase of your claim?
