Migraines From Tbi ( Please Offer Your Opinion )


Jesuslives316

Question

I put in a claim for migraines, my first c and p was with the neurologist, and he wrote down everything I stated, he put down the criteria that meets the 50 percent rating for migraines ( completely prostrating ). He even linked them to my stressor with an at least as likely as not statement. But I had another c and p with an ignoramus doctor who wrote my migraines were severe but not prostrating, he screwed me and wrote everything opposite of what I told him. I have been treated at the va for my migraines and I have a lot medication for them in my va records, my question is are they going to take the neurologists recommendation which states the 50 percent rating criteria, or the other c and p opinion that said I don't have prostrating migraines. And should I file a nod if low balled or denied, Thank you everyone for chiming in.

It's a wait-and-see, I'm afraid. One would think they'd take the opinion of the neurologist. But I wouldn't count on it.

In order for migraines to be at the 50% level, they have to be "with very frequent completely prostrating and prolonged attacks productive of severe economic inadaptability." That's not well defined, but the 30% level is prostrating once a month.

Be prepared to submit a NOD. But one never knows.

I'm in the process of crafting a NOD to address my migraines being lowballed at the 30% level.

God bless!

Thank you sir, yes that's great advice, I will get my nod in order as we'll. I've just never had a c and p examiner straight up lie like this one, he also made my knee look like there was no problem, and my gerds he made look like it was from acidic food, he totally screwed me. But it is what it is, I guess I'll just have to wait.

It's not like you don't have any recourse. If you have medical records that show otherwise, that's a substantial pile of proof. Be ready to stand on that. If you can, get outside medical opinions. However, you'll have to wait for your claim to close to see what was denied or lowballed before you really take that next step.

Besides an IMO, how much weight would a couple letters from family and friends explaining my symptoms carry, also where would I find doctors to write IMO s for me, where would I look, what kind of doctor, I know I'll probably have to pay and that's fine. Thank you. I don't know if my primary would write a letter but I could ask.
