Shortness Of Breath

Recommended Posts

Any one have shortness of breath with general labor, nothing real heavy?

I had an X-ray done as well as a pulmonary function test.

The X-rays report is,

Lungs are hyper inflated with flattening of the diaphragms. Heart size is normal. Pulmonary vessels are unremarkable. Lungs are clear, Interstitial markings are slightly prominent. No gross pleural reaction is seen. Early changes are detected in the lower dorsal segment.

My PCP, states mild hyperinflation, possible OPD issues, waiting on PFT results.

PFT results are that im good according to there test, waiting on them to send records to me.

35 years old, used to smoke, quit 5 years ago, except for one here and there.

Did vertical construction in Abu Ghraid, BIOP, Anaconda Iraq and Route Clearance is Eastern Afghanistan.

Thanks

Psych doctor told me 90% of the psych meds can cause brething problem. For me hyperinflation is from using inhaler with some of the lung powders you inhale. Forgot the name of them. A hard lesson for me to learn.

Sorry if in the wrong forum, my intent is to discuss this with fellow vets who are fighting the V>A> on this same issue as me, may be pushing a claim at them for this.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
