  1. I recently received a re-exam for my anxiety disorder that I have a 70% rating for. They sent me a packet explaining they want to lower the rating to 30% because of "improvements made". When i told my treating physician about this, he disagreed that any improvements have been made and agrees to write a statement for me to send in as evidence. I'm just curious how much ground his statement can hold against their examiners and if it is likely that they will reduce my rating or leave it as is. Has anyone else submitted doctors statements and had the VA rule in their favor? Is it common?
  2. So to make a long story short, I was active duty since 1994 and medically discharged in 2005. Since around 99/2000 I have suffered from what I now know as sleep apnea. I was never tested for it during service, but I had no idea what the heck it even was. Only knew I was being woken up by my wife, and when in the field or deployment soldiers, because I would snore loud and then stop breathing. I placed an initial claim for this in 2010 after I had a surgery at the VA, and I was placed in the ICU due to low oxygen levels and having sleep apnea during surgery. 04/2010, I did the first clai
  3. I have four appeals at the BVA level that were certified by my RO and none of the appeals have docket numbers yet. I understand about waiver of initial consideration for additional evidence. My questions are these: 1. How do I know what evidence the BVA currently has? Could be that lots of evidence I have is not at the BVA level and want to ensure they have EVERYTHING. 2. Will a waiver of initial consideration automatically apply to all evidence, past, present, and future? That is, does a waiver of initial consideration, prevent any of my appeals from being sent back to the RO
  4. My exam is at the end of the month for my TBI for SSDI and they asked if I wanted a copy for my VA doctor. I was wondering if this is something I can send in as evidence for my letter I requested Permanent and Total last month?
  5. Hello Fellow Vets, I'll try to make this a quick an easy read. I joined the Navy in July 2008 and served 5 years of continuous duty. By the time I was out I had several issues that were not present at my join date and eventually filed a claim for my benefits. Upon departure from the Navy, I filed a claim and was denied benefits for headaches, depression, a left knee and right knee condition. When I received my decision packet, it stated that these conditions could be granted a rating if found service connection. When I met with the DAV representative, he stated that if I could have
  6. I'm putting together further evidence to show service connection for disability for multiple myeloma based on contact with TCE's and Benzene on the flight line 91-97. Min addition to photos, lay witness statements and a nexus letter from my oncologist, can I also submit a previous des soon by a VA judge advocate dated 2012? In that decsision the judge found in favor of a Marine who worked on the flight line in 91-92 at El Toro. He was in NBC and had contact with benzene also and had multiple myeloma. This is basically the same as my claim only a different MOS. thanks.
  7. my question is, should i send my IMO to the Regional Office to look at ? i brought my IMO to the BVA hearing in D.C. around 4 months ago. i asked for the bva to take over consideration of the IMO and it was aggreed by the judge to do so. but now since my appeal has still not been decided and looks as if im still going to be waiting for some time then should i send the Great IMO to the department of original jurisdiction for consideration?
  8. Ok Apparently there are many documents missing from my SMRs. a police report, an emergency room log and exit exam, because if it wasn't tampered with, I would have shown that this injury was suffered from an attack in the army, 1994, But its missing so I was asked among many other things to get buddy statements. I have 5, unfortunately, no one especially me can remember when this happened, because there is no "evidence" which is BS i didnt have he scars on my head when i went it but i did when i ets'd...,can some one help me?
  9. Folks: Back in Feb 2015, I had what looks like my final CP Exams for this first ever FDC Claim. Consequently, 98%of my SMR evidence was turned in originally with the first claim as well. So, during the exams I handed the SMRS and some other CT/MRI Evidence that I had gotte just after I turned my intial claim in to the Docs and they both said, Do you want this added to your claim and I said.."absolutley!". Anyway, this week I found out that the records were not scanned into the VBMS system and no one at the CBOC or RO can confirn that they received the hard-copies at the RO? When I asked the C
  10. Greetings all! First, I wish to thank everyone who participates in these forums, especially those who give so much time in moderating them. You are a blessing to all of us. My question may have been asked before, but I'm not able to locate the threads, so forgive me if it's redundant. I'll put the actual question up front and supporting information after to save your time in case the answer would be the same regardless of the situation. The Question: Given what I think is my timeline (<10 years) should I submit the new evidence? I understand that i may delay the VA's next
  11. Not sure if this is where I should post this, if not please direct me to the right place. A claim for severe eczema was filed in 2011 and we finally just got the rating at 10% back. In reading the information on the letter, with the additional evidence from the dermatologist and family doctor, the ruling could have been at least 30% if not 60. I mailed to the Philadelphia office the additional evidence. What happens from here. The paper says a few weeks til its in the ebenefits site, but it has been at least 9 weeks now. I am not sure if I should just appeal, or wait to see what happens wit
  12. Hello all. I retired from the Army this past February. I've been following this forum since I received my initial compensation letter from the VA in July. I've learned a lot here, but I'd like to throw out a few questions, as well as post a letter for your review. I've been rated at 60%. (30% post hysterectomy, 30% PTSD, 10% right hip tendonitis, 10% thoracic spondylosis with scoliosis, and 10% tinnitus.) I also was SC at 0% for ten other conditions. The VA denied SC for eight more conditions. I do not feel I need to appeal every condition denied, but I would like to appeal some of t
  13. Reading through this forum I'm not sure if it's allowed or not. Does anyone know where the "ten commandments" for C&P exams can be found? TIA!
