I am Service Connected for Panic Disorder/Major Depression with Agoraphobia. My theory is it started due to separation anxiety when I was drafted and sent overseas and missed the birth of my son.

I am open minded to how you got it but you must be able to prove tht you got it in service or something that is diagnosed and connected to service as a secondary condition.

However, I believe that you would have a much easier go of proving depression to a rated condition but that is just my opinion.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the reply. I have had Tinnitus for so long that it wears on me. I developed Panic attacks and depression. I believe they are casued by the Tinnitus

I believe you but I have reservations about selling it to VA. If you are unable to work depression is much easier to prove cause all you will need is a Doc to say that you have Depression and link it to tinnitus. This the VARO will understand.

Even though you are sure that panic and tinnitus are connected I believe that the VA will never buy it. I could be wrong but I doubt it right now

Are you taking any medications for depression? The VA always wants to know if you are on medications.
