I'm a newbie here, but at the advice of my VSO I claimed and then appealed that same denied claim for OSA. I spent almost 30 yrs in the USAF and didn't get tested until a year after I got out. I didn't read any websites like this because my VSO couldn't believe it got denied, but after reading all this I can see why it got denied and the appeal will get shot down as well! I don't have it tied to any other SC condition?! How can that VSO even have a job there? All I have are the records from a private pulmonologist saying I have OSA and RLS, plus his PA filled out the DBQ and stated it indeed started while I was active. Oh and I have a lay statement from my wife. I need help asap. I have an appt tomorrow and was going to ask my OSA sleep doc for another letter, but tie it to what? I an currently SC for GERD, hypertension, respiratory infections, sciatica, left leg numbness, right knee pain, left ankle pain etc. Any help would def be appreciated, in the meantime i'll try to see what I can find out here on this very informative website
