    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Sc Pituitary Tumor 0 Rated



I recieved my rating today. 30 percent. Submitted my claim before I retired. I had all of my items claimed SC. All but 3 were rated 0 including the thing that got me MEB'ed. I was diagnosed with a macroprolactonoma (a large prolactin secreting tumor) on my pituitary gland. It grew so big it damaged my pituitary and other assorted goodies in my noggin. Causes migranes, sinus infections.....all these were SC but rated 0. I cant understand the logic behind the rating. When I look up the ratings table a prolactin secreting neoplasm is a 100 percenter...Could this be a terminology issue or it it due to the fact that the medication is controlling the prolactin levels? I am on meds for the rest of my life to prevent this thing from growing due to its location it's inoperable. A neoplasm is a tumor...If I can google it I figure a rating board can. The things that were rated were tinitus, arthritis, and COPD...legit but I thought a tumour in the brain would carry a bit more weight.....I will appeal.

Hello - I'm new here but would be interested in someone's thoughts on the rating. I recently filed a claim for a pituitary adenoma which is basically a large prolactin secreting tumor. The tumor was found while in the military and I often suffer from severe headaches and sinus infections also. I basically have to be on meds for the rest of my life or suffer from severe headaches, lactation, sinus infections, etc. I've sent all my medical evidence and now I'm just waiting to hear when my C&P exam will be. It's disheartening to hear someone else with a similar issue was rated at 0%. How is that possible?
