    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Wrong Diagnosis?

Question

I have a very complex case as I was diagnosed with Schizophrenic Reaction Paranoid type back in 1981-1982. I had fallen off my double-bunk bed a few days before complete with my ear gashed, I was e-vaced to a psych-ward and given mass amounts of anti-psychotic drugs Haldol & Cogentin just to name a few in my C-File my observing doctors could not come up with a prognosis either subdural Hematoma (brain-Injury) or psychosis. In my C-File it was decided that in view of suspicion if head injury continued observation of focal neurological sings was recommended but the psychotic diagnosis remained . My point is I feel that I was misdiagnosed & I have stated this in my claim. I have multiple symptoms indicative of PTSD, Depression, Anger, Sleep-Apnea, Apathy, grinding my teeth extreme fatigue. I have a TBI screening coming up pending the outcome I am hoping for a rating, I also have no explaination why or how I missed my last evaluation in 1984. I was pretty messed up then like I am now and possibly denial which is a symptom of TBI...bu

Did you ever claim the schizophrenia?

Any psychosis that manifests itself in service or is at least at 10% disabling within one year of service (by medical evidence)is fully service connectable under the Chronic Presumptive regs.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
