  1. Thanks for your reply, I will let you know how it come out.
  2. Thanks. Here is the situation, I was interviewed by phone by a VA psychologist who wrote a diagnosis of all things, nightmares but ruled out that it was PTSD. On the 21st I have an appointment with another psychologist for sleep disturbances. I have sleep apnea and use a cpap through civilian doctor in 2012, I did not file with VA on this because my VSO said that since I was not treated for this in the military it would not be granted. I am SC for tinnitus and it is constant Even though I use a cpap machine every night I still can not get more than 4 to 5 hours of sleep and do good to make the 70% requirement for usage. I see that sleep disturbance is listed as a later developing disability for Desert Storm veterans, which I am. I am currently rated at 70% in which none are related to sleep issues or mental health. Thank you for your information.

  3. Thanks guys for the swift replies. The research was done by the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit I saw the article and thought I would ask.. Like I said earlier I am SC for tinnitus but not sleep apnea because I was diagnosed several years after military. I am under going treatment now for sleep disturbance, will wait and see what they come up with at the VA
  4. I am service connected for Tinnitus and diagnosed with sleep apena and use a cpap but not service connected for it, diagnosed after service. I saw an article that stated that sleep apena can be secondary to tinnitus, is this true?
