  1. When I was child and early teen age years I had bad asthma, around 15/16 it went away, played football, ran track etc felt great. At 18 join the Marines never told them about the asthma,the recruiter told me just say no to any questions. I never had a problem in service (8 years 3 months) I was in Marine Air I was helicopter mechanic and crew chief on CH46. After I left the Marines back in 1988 had no problems until 2012 when asthma returned and stayed, I never smoke, the only connection I see is jet fuel and the chemical we used daily,, Do I have a case or am I barking up the wrong tree.
  2. Hey guys, I don't know if I'm in the right place but i was needing some clarification. After fighting with the military for six years, the C&P examiner stated that my condition precludes me from any physical occupation. I developed asthma back in 2012, while in service. Is that typical wording for pretty much everyone? I guess my English isn't that great and i would like someone to please explain to me what that entails? The examiner also stated that there is a 50% chance or greater that my injury was incurred in the line of duty, does that mean that they serv
  3. I'm a Gulf War veteran with 90% S/C for various conditions. Some conditions that have been denied have been frustrating since I'm still suffering with symptoms. How can I create a Nexus for sinusitis and sleep apnea? I'm 30% for asthma and tried to create a relation between sleep apnea and asthma, but that was a no go. I was thinking trying again and tying my PTSD to that. Any thoughts? I was also shot down on sinusitis from the get go, but I thought all I had to do was tie my gulf war time to that condition. I guess I was wrong.
  4. I had infant asthma with all signs and symptoms of asthma gone by the time I was 9 or 10 years old. On my pre-enlistment questionnaire, I marked I that I had had asthma (question says do you have or have you had) I had it as a kid and it was gone. I enlisted in the Navy in 1979 and based upon all the research I have been able to find, with any history of asthma, I don't think I should have been allowed to enlist. I have my service records and they are silent of any respiratory testing to enlist. The best I understand is they accepted me with a presumption of soundness. I had not had an
  5. What's up Fellow Vets, I am new to this site and I wanted to explain my case and get advise. I was medically discharged from the Army in 2004 due to a diagnosis of asthma (30% disability). I never had any kind of respiratory problems until I arrived in Germany in 2003. I started experiencing difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, excessive snoring, dry mouth, fatigue, ect. After several trips to the doctor and several tests, the Army doctors diagnosed me with having asthma. I never had asthma so all the symptoms i was experiencing were new to me. Fast forward to 2017,

  7. I am 0% for Chronic Sinusitis and 0% for Allergic Rhinitis. For years I have had issues with Bronchitis and Bronchial Pneumonia. A VA physician stated that I was 'misdiagnosed' while on Active Duty. He said that I have Asthma due to Allergies in 2014. Since being treated for asthma my condition has improved. I am now doing immunotherapy (weekly allergy shots). I filed Asthma as a secondary to the Allergic Rhinitis and the VA denied the claim. I am also taking Allegra, Flonase, Singular, and Asthmanex. How can I prove to the VA that my Asthma is related to the allergies? Also, the VA refus
  8. For starters, thanks for any and all help! I went to USAFA and graduated in 2011 and then served about 3.5 years before voluntarily separating during the budget cuts. So my final day was the last day of September 2014. That following Spring (2015) I began to have issues breathing and by June it was unbearable. It took them a month or so to track it down but they diagnosed me with Asthma. I breathe at 60% and use the highest dosage steroid they're allowed to give me now 2x/day every day. Additionally they found a little bit of AV Block and some times at rest my heart beat stops for upwards o
  9. I'm rated at 50% for OSA with CPAP but was declined "reactive airway disease" or asthma in my initial claim. I'm thinking about submitting a claim for asthma now that I'm on ADVAIR daily. Does anyone have any experience in winning this? However, been reading on HadIt which highlighted 38 CFR 4.96(a) §4.96 Special provisions regarding evaluation of respiratory conditions. (a) Rating coexisting respiratory conditions. Ratings under diagnostic codes 6600 through 6817 and 6822 through 6847 will not be combined with each other. Where there is lung or pleural involvement, ratings under diagn
  10. Dear fellow veterans. I have seen a couple of stories about such things going on with the VA claims and I just want to know what makes these overpayment/debt happen? I researched it online and still didn't figure out the whole detail of it. For example: does having an employment affect 100% SC disability (Not TDIU)? or If the C&P re-exam (after 2 years) proved to be better from your first C&P exam (claiming stage), and they deducted your rating from say 100% to 40%, would it mean paying for that past or changed rating also? (is that overpayment?) Also how about things that w
  11. Good morining all, I have a quick question to all. I filed a claim for Asthma when I first got out of the miltary. At my C&P exam which was four months later the C&P doctor dignosis me with Asthma. I was denied service connect and not grant a percent because it was not in my miltary records that they could not locate at the time and still can't. I was recieving medication from va, and private doctors. Va said that they saywhere i had been treated for brochettis in my records but not Asthma. Now I have gotten as dignosis from a Allergy and Asthma spe. said that I have Asthma
  12. In 2009, I was awarded a 60% asthma rating for meeting "intermittent (at least three per year) courses of systemic (oral or parenteral) corticosteroids" criteria. Since then, I have met or exceeded the number of treatments each year. The award letter included the following statement: How long does one need to continue meeting this criteria in order for the "likelihood of improvement" to no longer be a factor? Would an IMO be sufficient? If so, how should it be worded?
  13. Hello everyone, I have a question relating to the DBQ that is used for asthma claims (linked below). RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS (OTHER THAN TUBERCULOSIS AND SLEEP APNEA) DISABILITY BENEFITS QUESTIONNAIRE http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-0960L-1-ARE.pdf My DAV rep wants me to send in a DBQ and says it must be filled out completely, including the PFT values. My asthma was rated at 60% because I received 3+ courses of oral or parenteral corticosteroids within a 12 month period. Because my asthma is rated due to this criteria, not the PFTs, would I still need to have the PFT s
  14. I recently was honorably discharged and was advised to quick start my VA claim and did so. The VA on post has the following on my packet to get submitted for compensation: pseudofolliculitis barbae, asthma, allergic rhinitis, migraine headaches, cervical thoracic lumbar spine condition, sleep disorder (insomnia), nightmare disorder, adjustment disorder, and depression.
