  1. Filed a supplemental claim 12 days ago. Sent a current diagnosis from VHA of combat related PTSD (they diagnosed me with other stressor related disorder at 30%) and evidence of symptoms and interactions with police that should put me at 50 or 70% in like 50 pages of evidence via . Called 1800 number today to check on status and they said that it had already been decided for 10/20/2020 (tomorrow???) and no new C&P was given. Does this seem a bit fast to you? Does that mean its unfavorable or have you seen favorable decisions made that quickly?
  2. I will apologize in advance for the lengthy message but I am looking for insight on what may be happening here. Dec 2019 I filed claim for CCCA - which is a progressive alopecia typically found in certain group of women and very specific symptoms. I combed STR and found first instance of it in 2003 while active duty. I was treated over the years but it progressed (nothing you can do to stop it only slow it down). Based on disfigurement criteria I believe that my records, statements, etc. met at least four of the requirements. Last 3 years I had been treated by dermatologist and this was
  3. Hi Everyone I want to file a supplemental claim but I was told that I have to fill out form 20-0995 and fax it to the office that sent me my denial letter. But I also wanted to know when I fax in the form do I also fax in the IMO the lay statement and the case law that I have as new evidence in support of my claim.
  4. Hi, new member here, longterm lurker. I'm seeking advice on moving forward with my claim regarding loss of peripheral vision (code 6080), TDIU as a result. Specifically, I'm wondering if I should file the supplemental reopen to include EED, SC, and the TDIU? Here's the timeline: Initial VA claim in 2015 for numerous things including field of vision loss, back pain, lower leg numbness, etc. This resulted in only 30% service connected lower back arthritis, but denial on the vision issue. By 2018, the back worsened and a few other issues arose, so I submitted another claim resulting i
  5. Good morning all. Hoping someone could shed some light on a couple things. I’m on second go around with Supplemental claim on the same issues, but this time, actually got to see a doctor through QTC that listened, and looked at everything with me. Tried for a higher level review, but missed the second phone call to schedule appointment, was in VA appt. I called Peggy last week and they explained the DRO is requesting a records review from the doctor? Last night I received a package from QTC explaining that a different nurse practitioner will be reviewing my r
  6. May-1. Filed for increase on mental health condition (Depression 2nd to Tinnitus)2. VES exam, didnt go well, got reduced. Examiner said I had another condition, it wasn't service related, etc, etc. July-3. Filed a supplemental with a DBQ from a private psychologist (looked like 50-70 percent)August-4. New exam from QTC, went well, probably around 70 percent 5. VSO told me a few weeks ago they sent it back to examiner for medical opinion. I know the QTC examiner had mentioned that they did not ask for one in which he thought was odd during my exam in August. September- 6. VSO told me today tha
  7. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Or the claim request or the right form? Or when is a claim considered officially open? This is a case of my VSO helping me submit a new claim in April 2019 right after the AMA changes went into effect. At the time, neither of us knew we needed to submit it as a supplemental claim instead of a new claim. Years earlier, I had filed a heart claim for Afib, but I forgot about it. I have medical treatment records and a "more likely than not" IMO from a neurologist that I would like to provide to the VA. Just need to get an idea of the actual status of
  8. Hello, My claim is being denied over and over again since 2009 and the VA states it is due to my OTH Discharge . Here is a rundown of the claim, Bars to benefits per the VA: 1. AWOL more than 180 days 2. Acceptance of OTH discharge in-lieu of General Court Martial. VA states no records indicate insanity at time of offense, nor compelling circumstances. I recently was made aware my mental health records from Fort Bragg do exist but for 12 years I was told they don't. Someone eventually informed me after countless calls that they do exist and cannot be released to me bec
  9. Hi, I received me letter today, and I was denied. This time the error is clear. The Doctor who preformed my ACE examine said my initial diagnoses was Epilepsy then proven to be pseudo seizures. Initially at the ER (and my week long hospitalization after) and for about one month after I was diagnosed with PNES and not epilepsy. However since I kept experience both petite mal and grand mal episodes and then Epileptic medication treatment began to WORK, I was diagnosed with Epilepsy. My doctor in my civilian record's back dated the diagnoses to the May when the first event occurred. I've att
  10. Hi there, Recently actually yesterday the 21st of February the VA gave me notice that my supplemental claim had been decided and that they had sent out the letter that morning as well (meaning the decision was actually made on the 20th). This of course prompted me to check Ebenefits, where I saw no change in my rating. I'm currently rated at 40% for other issues. And in the past Ebenefits updated almost instantly leading me to believe that this supplemental claim was denied. I originally submitted my Epilepsy claim back in august, it was denied about 4 months later
  11. I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my le
  12. Howdy all. I'm finalizing my NOD to submit. I should have it ready to submit early next month. I have been told that I need to submit in the Supplemental Lane because I have additional support document to rebut the C&P Nurse examiner's exam. But I also plan to submit supplemental claims for the pain, numbness, and tingling in my arms and legs due to my neck and lower back problems. They will be secondary to those two issues. But the arms and legs issues were both listed as problematic in my original claim and even identified in my NEXUS letter and the DBQs I submitted. I did not specifical
  13. Long story coming. In 1991, my husband was in a Light Armored Vehicle accident which killed his best friend. My husband did not adjust well after this, and started having gruesome and violent hallucinations. Sixteen years later in 2009, my husabdn's PTSD was becoming horrifying again. He stopped talking for a month. I panicked and called the VA hospital where he went for his regular spinal cord injury treatment ( he was considered a catastrophic non service connected veteran). I filed a NEW claim for PTSD, with all of the evidence from his LAV accident in 1991, notarized affidavits from
