Va Disability Percentage Question

Question

I am currently serving in the Army as an infantryman. I have 7 years of service and 2 deployments. I just recently had a sleep study done, because I was feeling tired and sluggish all the time. My wife is the one that noticed it first. Well, while addressing my sleep issues they found that I have a seizure disorder and my Neurologists gave me a P3 profile recommending for an MEB. I was wondering what kind of percentage am I looking at? I noticed this problem after 4 years of service, no prior sleep problems or seizures as I child. What trips me out is I have never been in a direct explosion blast and I don't remember having any head trauma other than day to day bumping my head...

If you plan on using a cpap, that is a given 50%. Otherwise, that all depends on the severity of your sleep apnea. What other conditions did you plan on claiming?

The sleep clinic issued me a CPAP, I still haven't been able to sleep with it. I don't know what I am supposed to be claiming. The doc said I had a seizure disorder and she started me on meds and I am on a no driving profile until they make sure that they have it under control. I will have another EEG done while on the MEDS then if all is good I will be able to drive again. I didn't have this shit before I came in so I am assuming I developed it during service or it is service related. I also have had bed wetting episodes (rare maybe 8 times in the past 4 or 5 years) Back in 2008 I put my wife in a rear naked choke while sleeping and didn't even know it until the next morning(happened in 2008). As of right now I sleep on the couch because I keep my wife awake with frequent moving, grinding teeth, and snoring. I haven't really told the docs too much about bed wetting because of the rarity and embarrassment. So... sleep apnea with machine which I have is 50%, what about seizures under control with meds?

Have you been diagnosed for PTSD?

Do you have any achy joints or arthritis?

Do you have IBS or bowl movement troubles?

Do you have Flat feet?

List every problem that you have had since the day you enlisted to now... What hurts or do you notice with you?

So far

Sleep Apnea

Seizure Disorder

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
