Question About Rem Sleep Behavior Disorder



Hello, first post here at IHADIT.com.

I am still currently active duty Navy and plan to separate in about 18 months.

I have recently been diagnosed with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder and was told to treat it with melatonin pills. This made it a little worse so I stopped taking them...

I have read multiple posts on this site about the disorder compensation but it appeared to always be related as a secondary symptom to PTSD or Sleep Apnea and in my case I just have been diagnosed with the REM Sleep Disorder by itself.

So my questions are:

Does REM Sleep Behavior Disorder qualify as a service related condition that the VA will provide compensation for?

Does the condition have to be treated or documentation of treatment? (It's something that I will live with the rest of my life).

What is the general percentage if the VA does compensate for this condition?

Since my command is so remote the sleep study was approved by my local PCM and I had the study completed by an actual sleep disorder center (not at a Naval hospital or MTF) and the documentation will be submitted to my medical service record.

I have to go back and complete another sleep study since they wanted to see how I react to sleeping with melatonin.

Thank you for your responses, it is greatly appreciated.

Mike Warstler

Welcome to Hadit. I don't knw the answer but you should check out if you have sleep apnea which is compensatable.

I thought about this if you acquired it while you served and it causes you problems it should be rateable.

REM sleep disorder was not evaluated for my last C&P, but influenced the decision/rating for depression/BPII. It's on the interview questionnaire.
