Question

Hello everyone, This is my first post. Has anyone out there ever filed for a undignosed Illness?

Ever since I got out of the marines in 2002 Ive had servere dizzy spells, So bad at times I almost pass out.

Im seeing the doctors at the va with many test done and no dignose yet, But there still working on it.

None of this is in my medical record, But within a year of end of service I saw a privite doctor about this and a couple times since.

My Q is do I have a cliam even if its undignosed?

I was one of the first group in Afgahnistan afer 911, I was there from oct 2001 to feb 2002. I got back to my base in march 2002 and out of service in April, Do to my time frame from the end of my doployment and my end of service date i did not go to the tap classes.

Also I worked with fuel, I heard that maybe the reason for my dizzy spells. Thanks

Welcome to Hadit. Your symptoms are consistent with chemical exposure and since you worked with fuel your claim will nee to show a link, have a properr diagnosis and you should win. Are you able to work now? Have you filed for Social Security Disability?

I'd file a claim now, listing the symptoms. You need not have an actual diagnosis, as you are not a doctor but should be able to list the symptoms. jmo

I feel your pain. I am also having episodes of lightheadedness, but have also passed out and had what has looked like seizures. The doc's can't seem to figure out what is wrong so now they think its all in my head too. I just had my psych doc kick it back to the medical doc's last week. I agree with the others you should file, the longer you wait the shorter you effective date will be. Good luck.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
