Hello Everyone!


Money Mike

Question

Hey everyone, i know this is supposed to be for veteran's only, but i will be soon :biggrin: !!! Just 4 more months. Which means i have very little time left to get my claims together. if anyone can help, with advise and stuff that you learned along the way, i would greatly appreciate it. Or if anyone has a guess at how much disabillity i will be looking at, that would be cool. the following is a list of everything that i can think of that is wrong with me.

Gout in 2 toes,

stress fractures in shins,

posterior femoral syndrome in both knees,

minor acl tear in left and bone spur.

3 pylonidal cysectomys,

severe(i think) IBS,

Bronchitis twice annually,

tennis elbow on both,

and Cluster Headaches.

I also have some things that are not diagnosed, but are wrong with me.... how do i get a diagnosis to get disabillity for;

pain in both wrists from motorcycle accident, nothing visible in x-rays or bone scan.

and sharp pain on the right side of my neck and in my chest once in a while.

Thanks again for any help or advice you may have.

Mike

Welcome, Mike,

You asked "how do i get a diagnosis to get disabillity for; pain in both wrists from motorcycle accident, nothing visible in x-rays or bone scan. and sharp pain on the right side of my neck and in my chest once in a while".

I would suggest seeing a doctor before you leave the service and get these conditions documented in your service records. Then, when processing out, make sure they are noted in your exit physical. That would help.

Also, try to get a complete copy of your service medical records before you leave active duty. You may never get a chance to see them after you are discharged.

Good luck!

Welcome Mike!

Besides making sure all afflictions are noted by medical personnel and getting copies prior to separation, be sure to note all of the above on your separation physical paperwork .

Many of us were so excited to be getting out that we may not have been as meticulous as is beneficial on the separation physical.

Get your Cervical spine checked out. The wrists may be a symptom of Carpal Tunnel from a Neck Injury as well as the neck pain.

This is only a speculative guess but cover all bases.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
