    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Difficult Case

Question

Okay to make a long story short I have been recieving treatment fromt he VA for sometime now. I have been getting Xanex and other pills plus asthma medicine. Inhalors etc. They prescribe them.

So I am having really bad allergy problems and the VA refers me to an outside doctor(allergist) who tells me I am really allergic to mold and have bad asthma. He did all the tests and they said I had asthma. So he tells me to seek va compensation. So I go and they act like there is nothing wrong with me and say my lungs are 90%- which is okay......but I wasnt having an attack at the time. My docs records say different and if I didn't have asthma why would they give me all these drugs.

I also have letters I sent from Iraq telling my mom to send me an inhalor etc etc. Not sure what to do I have been out since 03 and had these probs since then-actually developed the anxiety shortly after returning from Iraq and started to have breathing probs after a bout of pnuemonia in boot camp.

Thanks

File your claim. You also need the envelop that letter to your mother was sent in. It will be determined based on all the evidence, not just the opinion of the VA doctor. Also file for your MH claim. Stick around and you will learn how to develop your claim but you first have to file.

I have filed both a claim for the asthma and a claim for MH. I was a marine and was an avaition ordnance guy at the very beggining of the iraq war. I was a forwward armer so we got attacked quite a bit but usually just by artillery and mortars. The wierd thing is that this stuff didn't start bothering me till I has been back quite a while.?

thanks for the response.- see previous post.........been a bad day.

PS the letters I sent my mom(asking for inhalors) were actually emails I sent from the USS Saipan email before and after I was in iraq. I couldn't get them(inhalors) there. They have my name @usssaipan whatever as the heading and the date. The letters talking about pnuemonia are various. Mostly boot camp. I think she saved the envelopes.

Call this a coincidence. I am from a small town and when I went to marine combat training I met a guy from the town next to me. He actually helped me on a hump (hike) when I was having an asthma attack. I can't seem to locate him though. I know his name and we were friends afterword (same base) I remember that i ENDED UP actaully falling out of a later forced march and had to do a remedial Hump......that no one ever passed....but it was a breeze withthe albuterol inhalor they gave me.......but Im sure that mysteriously dissapperaed from my medical record.

    • OK so I had pancreatectomy in 2003 due to an impacted goldstone 2/3 of my  Pancreas was removed I am type one diabetes with very large scars continued diarrhea stomach problems Constant back and shoulder pain I recently received a Nexus letter from my  endocrinologist related to my service in the gulf war.  Any suggestions or advice from anyone
    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
