  1. Hi, So what do you understand from this? photo in the Link - https://ibb.co/5Wm84vD I already got a diagnostic recently after the letter, So if I send the Diagnostic as a supplemental would they come back denying due to no nexus letter? Or is the nexus already covered? Also 3rd paragraph - the medical evidence support the conclusion that a persistent disability was not present. - would this be the next reason for a denial? how you overcome this? Around November 2007 I was in Afghanistan in the process of being medically transported to Germany and then WalterReed for another condition, I believe I left WalterReed around January or late December and that part of the favorable finding. When I complained of headaches. This last March 2021 I went to the VA Emergency Room due to strong headaches. I rarely go or complain I just pop some Tylenol or Ibuprofen and call it. Now I am taking Migraines medication Sumatriptan given to me by the VA. trying to get as much advise as I can before I send a supplemental claim. Thanks.
  2. Hello, I got a denial for headaches and I'm not sure what it is saying. When I read it I think it's contradicting itself. Could someone please help me understand what it says? Also there are a lot of other times I reported headaches after service which are all in my VA medical records that they did not mention in denial so I'm thinking they didn't actually read my file? This is from the letter. Service connection for headache condition. Service connection may be granted for a disability which began in military service or was caused by some event or experience in service. (38 CFR 3.303) While your service treatment records reflect complaints, treatment, or a diagnosis similar to that claimed, the medical evidence supports the conclusion that a persistent disability was not present in service. (38 CFR 3.303) We did not find a link between your medical condition and military service. (38 CFR 3.303) The evidence does not show that your disease developed to a compensable degree within the specified time period after release from service to qualify for the presumption of service connection. (38 CFR 3.307, 38 CFR 3.309) Service connection for headache condition is denied since this condition neither occurred in nor was caused by service. (38 CFR 3.303, 38 CFR 3.304) Favorable findings identified in this decision: Service treatment record dated January 26, 2005 and July 25, 2007 shows headaches. Medical record dated January 13, 2020 from Canandaigua VA Medical Center shows headaches. You have sufficient service to meet the minimum requirements for presumptive service connection. The claimed disability is a chronic disease which may be presumptively linked to your military service.
  3. 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
