C&p Exam



Next week I have my second c&p for my Migraine. I was awarded 30% because I didn't say the magic word prostrating to the VA Dr. Plus I was under some heavy meds during the exam, I was unable to answer the questions. So I had to file a NOD, which leads to this exam. I have a letter from my Neurologist stating the migraine are frequent, averaging 2-3 times weekly,despite preventive medications. When these are severe they are prostrating, and he is thus unable to function. He has been missing work due to headaches severity and frequency. In the past he had suffered a stroke and as a result cannot be treated with triptan medications.

I also gave them a calender for the past year of my migraines. The last VA examiner was alitte rude and was more concern with my stroke and did most of the exam on the residiual of the stroke. I hope I don't get the same Examiner! My goal is to get the 50% rating for the Migraine.

I went through a similar process. Although I had been treated by the VA for all TIAs and migraines since 2004, I still did a calendar of events, time off and the impact (wife missing work, kids home from school, etc.) on my life. It took a few months, but when the DAV rep called me (only time this has ever happend) she was almost excited that they had gotten me to 50%, the maximum. Funny, I did all the paperwork, they took the credit... You should be well prepared. Make sure to send copies of the same documents to the VA, with file numbers on each page, for as far back as you can document. I had about two years worth, and it was a slam-dunk.
