  1. I was found to have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) as a Medically Unexplained Chronic Multisymptom Illness (MUCMI) and was awarded a 40% evaluation in 2011. I suppose I was lucky in that respect knowing how many vets are denied this condition. However, a future exam completed in April 2016, found that my condition was due to "poor sleep quality" and "insomnia," which contraindicated the 2011 evaluation. The VA cannot terminate service connection (SC) based on a single exam, so I'm scheduled for a future exam in Oct 2017, and depending upon the outcome of that exam, the VA will either termi
  2. Hey all, I've been a lurker here for about the last year, and finally decided to jump into the fray. I need some help finding a chronic fatigue / fibromyalgia specialist in northern illinois. I've been receiving treatment through the VA at Hines, but for purposes of disability, I believe my 3rd party company would rather have an outside doc to talk to. Additionally my PCP at Hines seems unwilling to do anything regarding disability. Any help would be appreciated!
  3. I retired from the Post Office 4 years ago due to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It was a regular retirement. I left on my doctor's advice because I could not do the job and the stress was making my CFS worse. I filed for SSDI and that was granted for CFS, as well as other issues. Since that time, My rating of 60% disabled for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has been in effect for more than 20 years and I am 63 years old. I think I should file for Permanent & Total and or TDIU, but am hesitant on doing so. I tried to write up the paper work today, but it is so difficult to relive that time in m
  4. I recently joined the forum though I've been reading it for awhile but was afraid to join before my claim was approved. I got a call from the local VA office the day after Thanksgiving and was told that my claim was done and I'd be getting a large deposit into my bank account. This was from my initial claim from 2009 for CFS which was approved at the BVA. I did hire a lawyer but didn't think I had much chance of even getting service connected due to the length of time I'd been out of service and the issue - CFS related to vaccines I was given for my laboratory research position while i
  5. Hi, I'm currently 60% disabled, having been recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia though suffered with it "undiagnosed" for 6 years before I was actually given a diagnosis, Fibromyalgia is medically unexplained, I've done tons of research already on the disorder, my question now is can anyone point me in the right direction to validate my claim when it comes to Gulf War Syndrome, what evidence would be heavily weighted evidence in proving Gulf War Syndrome illness? My understanding is that no nexxus needs to be formed between service and the illness only pre-qualifying factors of whether
  6. So I went to my local Va and filed a 21-456EZ form for: Tinnitus Insomia memory problems Fibro(gulf war) Cfs(gulf war) Gastrointestinal disorders,hiatal hernia(gulf war) sleep disorders anxiety shingles/rashes and a few other things in my record I was honorably discharged from the USMC in 96 was dealing with this stuff then but, right or wrong I just dealt with it. I mean if I could get up and put my boots on in the morning and go to work thats's what I did. Only now it's taking longer to get going in the morning and so with the urging of my wife and fellow vets I went and fil
  7. I need some HELP. First off I am already 70%. PTSD 50% Fibromyalgia 40% Tinnitus 10% I do not know how to file my claim and need guidance. I do not want my conditions to be lumped together as one. Ok here is what I have medical diagnosis for and being treated for since getting out of the service 15 years ago. I show the diarrhea in my military records but not the migraines or chronic fatigue. But I did file a claim for migraines immediately when I left the military and also started receiving treatment from the VA for the headaches/migraines. The claim was denied. lol. go figure. 1. IBS. Bei
  8. Hi, I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend. As always, thanks to all the Elders and everyone who make this place possible! I have to submit my NOD by June 18th, 2014 - soon, I know. I'm hoping Berta, Carlie, Bronco Vet and/or the others can weight in on how/whether to file my NOD. First, do I have a legitimate NOD for either or both: My OSA rating being combined with other ratings, when OSA is supposed to stand on its own? Seeking a 60% rating for CFS because the decision letter cites "no compensable symptoms"? Regarding CFS, my symptoms rise to the 60% level, a
  9. I have a C&P exam in the next few weeks for CFS and IBS. What do I need to prove for CFS and IBS? I am a veteran of SW Asia. I have it documented of chronic mononucleosis while in the service and out of the service. I am not sure if IBS was documented in the service. I have heard that some of these are presumptive for GWI. Can someone give me some guidance with these.
