Chronic Fatigue



As I am taking Atenolol (100mg) a day to treat my service connected high blood pressure. what possible rating could I get by submitting a claim for chronic fatigue secondary to hypertension. This was found in my c-file a few years noted that veteran has not filed a claim for this. Hint, Hint!!. Therefore, it is time to put this in and see how this winds up!!

I am always tired, spend most of the day taking catnips till time to work. And a recent driving trip to California took much longer as I can only drive about 2 hrs till it is time for another nap. I'm not sure if they give you 10 or 20% if anything if this is filed as a secondary issue. With a new year upon us, it is time to finish up a few loose issues as I have no new claims, just 5 claims on appeal.

Cool Breeze,

Have you ever been checked for sleep apnea? I was tired all the time, and then found out I had it. I am not so tired anymore, but I still take naps.

No, but since the VA put a note in my c-file stating I didn't file for that I figured the quickest method was to file as secondary as this medicine side effect is fatigue. Right now I just about gave up on the VA to do anything since they made it very difficult to get an appointment. You have to go through the doctors nurse from hell who makes a decision whether you read and treat your self from the book they handed out, or if they will approve you to get an appointment.

Another referral from tri-care coming up.

Yeh-next time I call I will tell them I have developed a learning disability where I can no longer read. And do I need to call the patient advocate to file a complaint or what would you suggest? :biggrin:

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
