Migraines? 0%


Im going to appeal the 0% migraines they gave my husband saying he was not Posrtating. We have told every Dr he has seen that he has to lay in the bed in a dark room?? Only one has said anything about it in his report.. this is what he wrote"Pt tends to turn off all the lights, reduce any noicse, lay down in bed and tries to go to sleep when he is experienceing a migraine. He also experience nausea during his migranes. He went to see the Neuro and all she said was he can't stand bright lights or noise, when i was there for the apt. and he said he had to lay down. Will one Psycologist saying he has 3-4 mig. a week and when he has them he has to lay down be enough proof? thank

What Diagnostic Code (DC) did VA rate his headaches under ?

What did the doctor state his headaches are caused by.

Have your treatment doc look at the treatment reports and state that they are actually prostrating. The VA missed that or it is not written in actual verbage so it needs to be done.

Yes they are prostrating but the VA will not touch it unless a Doc actually states it.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
