  1. I am rated for tension headaches but accepted my low rating because I trusted the VA's decision at the time (ha!). Note that I am NOT rated for migraine headaches. How do I show that I meet the criteria for a higher rating if the higher ratings, to me, apply only to migraine headaches and not tension headaches? Maybe I am misunderstanding. Please help me understand.
  2. So I went in Friday. Saw two examiners. I didn't have time to submit my Statements in Support of Claims (PTSD & knees) my wife and adult children filled out but I had them read them while I was there. I just uploaded them on Monday. The first wa a Nurse Practitioner. She checked my feet and knees. Don't know if this was the smartest idea but I didn't wear my AFO or knee brace at first, because I wanted her to see how I walk, move unassisted. I put it on after her examination and showed her how I'm still not stable on that leg no matter which apparatus I'm using. I expla
  3. I have 4 C&P exams this Friday. All for increases. (Migraine, PTSD/depression/anxiety/chronic pain/agoraphobia, bilateral foot pain and knee pain increase [including VA issued knee brace and civilian issued AFO foot brace]). Should I have my wife ad adult kids who both witness and suffer from my mood swings, depression, anxiety and antisocial like living on a daily basis? They can also talk about my constant leg pain and migraines. I also want my supervisor to do one regarding my migraines that have me leaving work early, alot. But that is a touchy subject, because I don't want m
  4. I'm trying to make it easy for my doctor to help me with my VA claim. I'm filling out my DBQ for Migraines and I'm stuck on Section V 5B. I don't understand the section. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

  6. Hey, I'm service connected for IBS, chronic migraines, anxiety, reynaud's syndrome, and lumbosacral and cervical strain. Upon coming home from Afghanistan and while in country was treated for insomnia and many of my symptoms above progressed in the first year after returning in 2011. I was treated and diagnosed while still on AD. My rheumatologist an AD Col diagnosed me with fibromyalgia end of 2016. I filed a VA claim and told my fibromyalgia was not service related. Is it worth appealing and if granted could the VA take away my other conditions saying they are just part of my fibromyalgia d
  7. Hello everyone, This question feels incredibly silly, but it's stumping me. Would like to claim Migraine headaches due to TBI Not currently rated for TBI Not (currently) seeking anything related to the TBI other than migraines Are the migraines secondary to TBI, or Are the migraines directly service connected with TBI being the in-service event? If the migraines are secondary to TBI, how does one ever get a current diagnosis of TBI, seeing as it's an event sort of thing? Or, how do you work around this? In other words, if I broke a bone ten years ag
  8. Hello fellow Veterans, I am trying to figure out, if I can pursue a couple of service connection claims, that I was examined for during my C and P exam/ Persian Gulf exam. The first one is Esophageal Conditions: It states EROSIVE GASTRITIS OF THE GASTRIC CARDIA IS A SECONDARILY SERVICE CONNECTED CONDITION AS THE RESULT OF SERVICE CONNECTED HIATAL HERNIA. Do I file a claim for this diagnosis from my C and P exam/ Persian Gulf Exam? This was the diagnosis from the C and P examiner! Second One is for MIGRAINES....The Opinion was MIGRAINE HEADACHES IS THE DIRECT RESULT OF GULF WAR MILITARY SE
  9. I'm an emotional xxxxxxx wreck, sorry for the long post. For a long time I struggled with refusing to get help, trying to man up... all the bullshit that comes with it. I finally wised up and realized that as a 27 year old young man with my entire life ahead of me I don't have to continue living like this. Time to hold the Army accountable for its actions. I suffer not only with PTSD but also many other chronic health issues, one of them dysautonomia (a nervous sytem disorder that leaves me bed-bound most of my life). Dysautonomia is said to be secondary to long term, unresolved, PTSD,
  10. Got the white envelope in the mail today. The good news is that the VA rated me 30% for migraines, which put me in bed flat between 2.25 and 2.5 days per month, with migraines running for up to 5 days. Looking at the decision package, they rated me at 30% based on having, on average, one prostrating migraine per month over the last several months. The trip wire for 50% is defined by 38 CFR 4.120 is "With very frequent completely prostrating and prolonged attacks productive of severe economic inadaptability." The raters did not find that my claim met that threshold, despite the outside doct
  11. I am currently in the process of my first claim. I am petitioning for an increase based on my two bulging disks, the narrowing of my spinal collumn, and the thoracic/lumbar arthritis. The migraines are something I just realized may be connected. I usually just ate my motrin 800 , drank some water, and laid down when they would come around. At my appt today, i brough it up with my new doc and explained the symptoms exactly. He said theres a good chance it has to to with my back issues. Question 1: Do I file a new claim for migraines? Question 2: Do i have to wait for my current increase t
