John, I'm not very computer savy and I could not answer on your question off the private post so I am making a new post here. Your question was how long did it take to get the 100% TDIU, P&T. I guess the easy answer is the retro goes back to August 2004. I started with DMII, Tinnitus and added PN after discovering the HADIT board. First lower body then upper body PN. I am lucky that my wife has a good job with health insurance that helped us survive till the award.

I dismissed a NOD for HBP as my SO said we have achieved the desired goal and any further claims might screw up my decision. I kinda disagree as the TDIU is P&T. The HBP was diagnosed before DMII and that is why the VA is denieing it. I belive you have posted that the same thing is happening to you with PN. I hope I have answered what you asked.

I have donated to T-Bird when I won some of my other claims and times were tight so I will not forget her now that I've won the big prize. Take Care! Terry Sturgis

The VA did maintain that my PN proceeded my diagnosis of DMII but I was service connected on appeal for the PN. I think you should try and get all this stuff service connected. I say this because HBP and PN can both have bad outcomes at times. People lose limbs to PN and HBP can kill. This is the kind of stuff that should be SC'ed because it is chronic and progressive in the damage it does. I don't know what these service officers are talking about sometimes. The hardest part is to get something service connected and that is the main thing.

    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?”

    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
