i've been to the va doctors on several occasions with severe back pains. I've noticed that they never assigns bed rest but will give me a note for time off from work. Can I use the Dr's note for time off under their claim to help me when I file for an increase? Or do I just ask for bed rest.
turtle5252 posted a question in Eligibility - Veterans Compensation Benefit ClaimsI have a claim in process (Gathering Evidence), with 7 individual disabilities. My question: If the private treatment/clinical records from my HMO show additional disabilities not listed in my claim, will the VA Representative who is reviewing those HMO records, place them into my VA claim for rating? Example: I did not put in my claim Hearing Loss, MDD, Strokes-but they ARE in my medical records. I see now that I should have requested a VSR-my loss. Stationed in Thailand 1966-1969 Any help greatly appreciated!
