    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

Very Soon, I Should Know If It Is Ms I Suffer From


Question

Very soon, I should know if it is MS I suffer from. In the coming few days or maybe a couple of weeks, I should find out from my neurologist doctor if it is (Multiple sclerosis) MS that I have been suffering from. I had a new MRI of the brain today. I Had a brain mri 30 years ago on active duty, because I was very sick from chemicals on active duty in the U.S.A.F.. I have had all kinds of neurological symtoms, and mostly tremors all these years, but it has been progressing, I have gone through so many symptoms that could be Parkinsons, Myotonic Dystrophy, MS,, and others.. I have had severe muscle wasting, and to go with all theat, have had myclonic seazures, body parts jerking, stumbling, unblanced, Intestinal disease, eye disease, Pancreas disease, back disease, severe headache, speech issues, and the list goes on forever... chronic pain, fibromyalgia, I take morhine daily, I have been on strong pain killing narcotics for 20 years.. I have not been able to work for 20 years.

I am only rated at 50% fpr headaches, the VA denied al the other claims 15 years ago, I put new claim in in 2009, and spending 2008 in the hsopital for 6 months, and a wheelchir for one year and learning to walk and eat again after the feeding tube was removed... I have necroctizing pancreatitis, the next infection, they have to remove my pancreas..

I have those claims in at the VA to ge the full 100% P&T, but they denied my claims , thye ignored the evoidence, and had a DRO hearing 2010, and awaiting the decsions on 6 issues.. but they just keep dealying, and I don't know how long i have to live, as the pancreas disease has no cure.. I await my decisions, My family need the benefits badly... I have even asked my congressman ot help get my claim moving.. (the VA is deny, deny, until I die)..

I hope to find out if I Have MS, because it wil help immensly for both my wel beeing and for my disability claim to get a more solid diagnosis.. I take several medcines to stop the violent jerks and tremors.. I filed for MS, in 1997, bu tthey only approve dmy claim for headaches back then.. out of all symptoms they mostly fit MS... hopefully the MS wil show what the doctors need to finally decide what I suffered from in neurological problems.. it is very scary when you lose control of your body. The doctors and nurses saw my neuro problems daily whenI was an inpatient and was unable to care fro myself for 6 months. I fought to learn to walk again, and have a lot of problems walking.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
