    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

Autonomic Neuropathy



Is autonomic neuropathy a separate rateable condition? I am rated 20% for dm2 and 10% for each limb for peripheral neuropathy. My doc just told me that I probably have autonomic neuropathy, caused by my Dm2. She also said that the autonomic neuropathy more than likely caused my GERD. I have an appointment with a C&P doc tomorrow for a re-evaluation of all of my SC disabilities and I would like to hit him with this. If it is covered under my limb PN, then I won't waste the time.

Thanks all!

Get her to write a Nexus and put her basis and reasons on it and send it in.

It cant hurt. This type of Neuropathy covers a wide range of Nerves.

They would rate as effected Nerves most likely under the PN criteria.

Also it does seem to be separate from PN-


Apparently it can GERD and other conditions- I sure would claim anything that you have that can be caused by it-

This case seems tpo indicate these are separate conditions-

I found one other BVA decision that mentioned the vet had 10% for autonomic neuropathy.


This remand is an outrage-the veteran's stressors are clearly stated but the VARO did not even attempt to get them verified by JSRRC.

Any vet who is denied for PTSD because VA says they could not verify their stressors or probably didnt even try to verify them -should write to JSRRC themselves with the stressor details.

Another remand due to RO errors. Disgraceful.

Great information from all! I am going in for a medical C&P tomorrow, and GERD is one of the things on the list. I was concerned on how I was going to tie it to DM2, and think that I now have enough information to give the examiner. Now...what he does with it remains to be seen! I will report back and let you all know what happened as soon as I get the report.

Thanks again!
