  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Cfs, Gerd, And Ibs

Question

I just had my C&P Exam today for CFS, GERD, Dysphagia, and IBS today. I met with the doctor for about an hour and he went over every detail of my medical records. He stated from my medical records that he could link my chronic mononucleosis to CFS. He also stated that he could link my dysphagia in my medical records to an esophageal stricture and GERD. He stated that he could not link IBS for my medical records. There was stuff in my medical records stating diarrhea but he stated everything was linked to my mono. How much weight does a C&P examiner have when it comes to linking military service to current conditions? What is the rating schedule for each of these? or can you tell me where to find them at? Are Dysphagia and GERD rated separately since I have chronic dysphagia along with having an esophageal stricture and GERD? I have provided the VA medical documentation showing my Dyshphagia, GERD, Mono, and IBS.

or can you tell me where to find them at? I could be really snarky and merely say '... Look in 38 CFR Pt 4 ...' , but I won't.

Requirements for a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome are at 38 CFR 4.88a http://www.benefits....PART4/S4_88.DOC .

Rating criteria for CFS are at DIagnostic Code (DC) 6354 at 38 CFR 4.88b http://www.benefits....ART4/S4_88b.DOC

Stricture is evaluated as DC 7204 at 38 CFR 4.114 http://www.benefits....ART4/S4_114.DOC .

GERD is rated under the criteria for Hiatal Hernia, DC 7346 at 38 CFR 4.114 .

IBS is rated under DC 7319 at 38 CFR 4.114

You can receive separate evaluations for esophageal stricture. You cannot receive separate evaluations for GERD and IBS. For why, read the intro to paragraph 4.114.

I doubt that you'd get separate evaluations for CFS and mononucleosis.

    • 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.
