  1. I was discharged January 29, 2011. During my time in I did not have a sleep study, but some sleep issues were documented. I filed for disability for sleep apnea through the VA January 9th, 2012. By Feb 22 2012, I had a sleep study. I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and issued a CPAP. After that my life turned into complete chaos with a divorce and losing my house to my wife. I moved probably 8 times between 2012 and 2014. In 2013 I got a call from the VA saying that my claim was about to be closed, and that I don't have evidence of service connection for my sleep apnea. They also t
  2. I am in the 8th year of a very legit toxic claim. Exposures admitted. Finally more exams are coming. I would like to find the instructions given to doctors doing such exams. I hope there are instructions like "if the diagnosis is recognized by a respected minority of physicians you can't disallow just because you disagree" (standard rule in medical litigation) also instructions with how they are to deal with benefit of doubt re: occurrence etc. I can't find on Internet.
  3. I have been following the group for a while. My claim is currently sitting in “Pending Decision Approval”. My question is in regards to my C&P exam. In the notes section of the C&P under GW, the doctor states, “...is less likely than not”. However, directly below that under medical opinion, he states “...is at least as likely as not occurred in service”. Why would he have this distinction? All of my claims were for Gulf War syndrome. The C&P looks favorable for service connection, but not Gulf war. Am I missing something? Are there any thoughts on why he separated these items
  4. So I went to release of records and I got my c n p exam notes . it's States. Based upon direct evaluation and review of the veterans service treatment records DSM-5 diagnosis of other specified trauma or stressor related disorder is provided. The trauma is.....(goes into my specific trauma) this diagnosis is a clarification of the adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood assigned in service My questions is what diagnosis will I be service connected for?/ did the examiner provide the diagnosis for the OSTRD? I know ultimately the raters decide but from the exam
  5. ALCON: please excuse any unintended etiquette breaking on my post. I stumbled on this forum yesterday while googling about a problem with UPS the VA and medication delivery (different issue, still angry, don't get me started). This forum is massive! I some difficulty navigating it but attempted to read pinned posts and follow rules. BLUF: I incurred an injury during service, I've been fighting to get it added to my claim. I'm currently at 90% and the injury is so significant it will push this to 100% (yes, I've done the VA math on this). What do you do when it keeps coming back "cannot f
  6. Good Morning community- Earlier this month I recieved 100% service connection, a surprizing 2 1/2 months after submitting my claim on e-benefits. After living off of a few hundred bucks a month for the past 3 years I woke up to $6k in my bank account, so life feels great right now. A friend of mine is telling me to file my NOD anyways, for the other disabilities they didn't connect, and also to get my SC backdated to the onset of condition - which would be considered starting in the last 2 months of service before recieving my honorable discharge, 9 years ago. Wh
  7. Hello everyone. What I want to know is if I am getting an adequate service connection percentage. I am currently getting 30% for Bi-Polar disorder. I was originally at 10% and then applied for an increase in my percentage in 2011 and it was raised to 30%. I keep seeing and hearing about vets getting higher percentages than me and it confuses me. Like my brother in law gets 20% for a bad knee and when in my mind I compare a bad knee to constant mood swings, bouts of depression, never ending anxiety, paranoid thoughts especially in social situations whether it be at work or in social gatherin
  8. A veteran's story... after service. A difficult, but true story with a warning to Veterans. Fore-warned is forearmed. Like many others, I enlisted in the military, to do my part. It never occurred to me, beforehand, that such as this story would occur. I find most veterans are reluctant to discuss their ‘stressors’. After years of experience with VA hospitals, I don’t remember anyone ever telling me what happened to them. Those painful events are personal, private and burdensome. I don’t want to discuss my ‘stressors’ either; suffice to say they occurred and I struggled
  9. Here is my situation: I am currently 0% S/C for Anorexia Nervosa. I have a laxative abuse history for over two decades. I am currently in out patient therapy weekly through Tri-West paid for by the VA. It is helping to a point....I have my days... In November of last year I fainted due to my ED and was rushed to the VA ER. I damaged my lower face to include my two upper teeth. I reported this incident to my outside therapist, Chief MH Director of my VA team, and my PCP doctor. Both the MH/PCP doctor's provided consults for me to go to VA dental but Chief Dental Doctor denied all
  10. i do have another post titled prepair for bva but this is a question that is specific and i hope someone can point out some things. i see after scanning many different previous BVA decisions that i have 3 different ways to gain service connection but im not sure of the easiest for me or do i just overwhelm my self with all 3 I believe that my claim should be granted I believe that my claim falls into 3 different ways to achieve a grant of service connection 1. Presumption of soundness….. induction exam passed me with flying colors and so did the 30th AG reception. The VA can re
  11. Hello, Thanks you all for great help and advice so far in our adventure with the VA. I am helping my father with most of the grunt work for this process and he is represented by the American Legion. The backstory: Claim filed in 2005. Finally awarded in 2012 @ 50%, but they failed to infer the claim for TDIU, even though he has been on SSD since 2003, and the VA mentioned SSD with service connected symptoms in his VA award letter. His doctor letters also declare him permanently disabled from working (VA doctor). He filed a NOD 2013 stating that his claim should have been inferred
