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

    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

Ptsd And High Blood Pressure

Question

Hello I know it is logical but would PTSD affect a persons Blood pressure? I had a guy in my group the other night who is SC for PTSD and he said he got his Hypertension connected to his PTSD. Any Ideas of if this is logical? I know that if something that is not SC and it agrivates a SC condition it is rated as if the Non SC were SC. Am I right on this? Have a good day I was wondering if anyone had heard of it.

Oldman,

Blood pressure can be affected by anything that causes a physical or mental stress to the body. There is a vast amount of research that has proven this to be true. So yes it is possible to SC hypertension secondary to PTSD.

Hope this helps,

Bergie

Numerous studies have pointed to PTSD having a direct relationship to increased BP but the VA has continued not to accept those studies. The VA is just waiting for more of us to die off, before they approve it. Imagine how many claims there will be when approved! Generally, you'll need an IMO to win the connection. You can win, tho. jmo

    • 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...
