Please give me your opinion on how this headache DBQ is filled out. This was done by a board certified neurologist. My left knee is is rated at 10% for limitation of flexion. There are STRs that state my knee gave out in service. I have current medical records that also state my knee goes out. I'm also going to claim knee instability (I didn't know about this when I filed the first time.) I have a work accommodation forms filled out by my VA PC and Neurologist that state I need to leave work, not show up, and be allowed to complete my work on nights and weekends. The forms also state things like "Can't do any other activity during severe headaches" and "bedridden". I also have a letter from work stating they granted these work accommodations and 14 buddy letters. I'm planning on asking for an extra-schedular rating since the headache schedule doesn't talk about involuntary body tics, ability to focus/keep on task, interference with reading, and interference with driving. Opinions requested for: Nexus Does this fit extra-schedular ratings criteria? Does 1C and 2A cover medical reasoning that would normally be needed in an IMO to back up the doctor's nexus? What if anything should I ask the doctor to change? Thank you
