I think I got the 10 percent because i had multiple items on my claim and they all came back 0 percent so they had to give me at least 10 percent.:rolleyes:

I'd file an appeal. The frequency might be the thing here - severity is evident. Do you have a VA neuro yet? If not, request one. Get the history into the VA system, and keep a daily journal. I found that by keeping record of daily activity/pain levels, I was able to get to 50% just by being honest, but having records. Don't record the migraines alone, but all headaches and duration. Have you had trauma?

Reddit,

What diagnostic code (DC) is your HA rated under ?

Are you sure they rated it under DC 8100 ?

What is stated in the Reasons and Bases Section of the

Rating Decision that granted SC at 10 % ?

Ok I know what you are talking about. I recieved 50 percent for migraines not after several years, but i am trying to figure out all the things that they did wrong with initial clam that I put in . In 1998, I file this for migraines and then appeal only to get 10%. I know there is something wrong with this claim and the rater that did it.

Just checking to see if I have a cue.:rolleyes:

Reddit,

What diagnostic code (DC) is your HA rated under ?

Are you sure they rated it under DC 8100 ?

What is stated in the Reasons and Bases Section of the

Rating Decision that granted SC at 10 % ?

Issue :

Service connection for migraine headaches(also claimed as dizzy spells)

Service connection for maxillary sinusitis(also claimed as allergic rhinitis)

Service connection for gastroesophageal reflux(claimed as gastroenteritis)

service connection for iron deficiency anemia.

Service connection for asthma and sciatic nerve damage.

Evidence:

Service medical records for the period May 1988 to September 1993

VA examination dated May 26,1998, Va Medical Center , Dublin GA

Service medical records for the period September 1993 to December 1997 could not be obtained for review. If these records

are located at a later date, this decision will be reconsidered. If a different decision results, that decision will be effective as of the date of the original claim.

DECISION

Service connection for migraine headaches is granted with an evaluation of 10% percent 12/11/1997.

Service connection for maxillary sinusitis is granted with evaluation of 0 percent

Serivice connection for gastroesphageal reflux is granted with eval. 0 percent

Service connection for anemia is granted with eval 0. percent.

asthma and sciatia nerve damage is denied, residuals of head and back injury is denied

REASONS AND BASES

The prior rating decision of December 1998 considered service connection for the condition at issue in the absence of medical records. We have now received and reviewed service medical records for the period May 1988 through September 1993. Service medical records for the period September 1993 to December 1997 could not be obtained for review. If the records are located at a later date, this decison will be reconsidered. If a different decision results, that decsion will be effective as of the date of the orginal claim.

<BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"> I was granted service connect for migraine headaches effective December 11, 1997. It was established that my migraines was directly related to military service. I was assigned 10 percent disabling from December 11, 1997. The examiner diagnosed with migraine headache. (C&P examiner)

Here is ome of it.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    • This process does not take long.
