  1. Tinnitus, or ringing in the ear is not a disease, but a symptom which can result from a wide range of underlying causes, including: prolonged exposure to abnormally loud sounds in the ear canal, ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies which prevent (or induce) fluid drain, or wax build-up. Tinnitus can also be noticed as part of the natural aging process, as a side effect of some medications or of genetic hearing loss.

If you have several disabilities, you may be asked to report for several C&P exams. This is a routine request. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPh1aNtcdfE ★ JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR FELLOW VETERANS ★ ▶ facebook.com/VET2VET ▶ twitter.com/VET2VET ▶ youtube.com/c/VET2VET

  5. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: #14 Undiagnosed Golf War Illness A prominent condition affecting Gulf War Veterans is a cluster of medically unexplained chronic symptoms that can include fatigue, headaches, joint pain, indigestion, insomnia, dizziness, respiratory disorders, and memory problems. VA refers to these illnesses as "chronic multisymptom illness" and "undiagnosed illnesses." We prefer not to use the term “Gulf War Syndrome” when referring to medically unexplained symptoms reported by Gulf War Veterans. Why? Because symptoms vary widely. Under
  6. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/XAoGOTJqbmA All claims for VA benefits begin with an application. Unless there are very unusual circumstances, a claimant should use the form that the VA specifies for the benefit desired. As with all VA forms, you should read the Form instructions carefully and get help if you are unsure of what is required. Starting March of 2015, the VA introduced a new process know as the "Intent to file" using VA Form 21-0966. This form notifies the VA that you intend to file a claim for VA compensation, pension, or survivors' be
