  1. So I just checked on Va.gov site today and I had a new alert or update, it said “Your comp and pen claim” And then it said lawyer fee something something, I’m assuming them just paying my lawyer. Either way, does this give you a better idea of movement or timing???
  2. This was just an initial Grant, no remand, but okay, I’ll definitely use some of this, thank you!
  3. Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process! My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status. Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bi
  4. Hey all, First off, love this page it has been extremely helpful! Background: currently at 90% / 70-ptsd, 50-migraines, 10-iritis, 10-tinnitus, and I’m in the running for 100 at the moment. Current day: Was content at 90 but after all these years I have finally come out about my MST when I was in the infantry. Still working stuff out on that end as this is still fresh... Anyway, I submitted a claim for sleep apnea because of the MST. I submitted the following: picture of CPAP machine I use in my house, nexus statement from issuing doctor, Nexus statement from other doctor
  5. Hey everyone, I’ll try to keep it simple as can be, I have two appeals that have been since merged (on 6/12) into one. I now just have the status of “a judge is reviewing your case now” or the similar one of the VA.gov status page. At the same time, my case has successfully been expedited due to financial hardship(s) and that has already been confirmed via letters stating so. My question is, what kind of time frame am I looking at? Sure, I am aware there are probably things that will get remanded due to lack of this or that given the fact that there is now 5 issues in this one appea
  6. Okay thank you, that makes more sense, so in essence it is just standard protocol...
  7. Thank you, I guess my mind is trained to naturally expect like a super private investigator reading into every detail of it. I just needed to hear that I did nothing wrong with it, thank you!
  8. brokensoldier244: obstructive, and yes he did state that it’s from the MST, I suppose I’m just feeling weird about it since a lot of the MST info is in those files and I’m not ready for that to be public yet, in other words I don’t want them poking around with it if that makes sense.
  9. Hey all, - I have a claim in for sleep apnea due to a documented MST. I provided the VA.gov site with uploaded documents that were from the issuing doctor stating that he recommended a CPAP machine for me. I then submitted a (lawyer approved) photo of my CPAP machine with all my data. Obviously none of this is in my Army med files because I did not want the MST on file. I then submitted the files and medical documents I listed above that are clear as day (which I know the VA doesn’t live in that day). After submitting all of this, they requested me to fill out a VA 21-4142a form for reque
  10. Broncovet, thanks for getting back to me, yeah I figured they had no clue, or at least can’t be trusted, my letter does say 90, that’s mainly how I found out about things moving around, biggest thing now is trying to understand what is still open and what is waiting for a decision still.
  11. Pete, Thanks for the reply, I have other ratings I did not list that when added to these, would rate 100%, sorry for not adding that.
  12. Hey everyone, Need some insight here... I filed a triple issue appeal with the VA some time ago, I lawyered up and everything was handled very professionally. I asked my lawyer this; however, he has told me that if it is not a “next day due” issue, it will have to wait. I get both sides of that, 1 being, okay i get it, stuff is hectic! Other side is, well I’m paying for this, why are you not getting right back to me...none the less that’s why I’m here. Appeal Issues: 1. PTSD: increase from 50 to 70 2. Back: Get service connected (We already ruled thi
