  • 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

C&P thoughts

Question

Exam thoughts

I posted earlier but I didn't copy right. Hopefully this time It does c. Rationale: I had reviewed the C-File in VBMS, to include the above noted medical records, and medical records in Capri. And although the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome DBQ report from the private sector, noted a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it did not provide evidence of enlarged lymph nodes of the neck or arm pits usually seen in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, recent medical records in Wilmington VA's Problem List as well as the the recent JAN 11, 2016 Gulf War Registry exam, were silent for a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, therefore it is less likely that the Veteran has a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but per the recent JAN 11, 2016 Gulf War Registry exam, " Veteran has several unexplained conditions/symptoms which could fall under the Gulf War syndrome umbrella, including his headaches and cognitive problems. Also he has diffuse joint pains.". Therfore it is my medical opinion that it is at least as likely as not that the Veteran, at this time, has a undiagnosed illness which would meet the criteria for a positve medical opinion for service conection for Gulf War. On ebenies in my disability list it says claim complete service connection not there for chronic fatigue but seems like C&P was on my side. I did only claim chronic fatigue

The opinion does look negative for Chronic Fatigue, but VA may end up "inviting" a claim in the Notification Letter for Undiagnosed Illness related to Gulf War exposure. At least that's what they should do.

this statement seals the deal  "Therefore it is my medical opinion that it is at least as likely as not that the Veteran, at this time, has a undiagnosed illness which would meet the criteria for a positive medical opinion for service connection for Gulf War." In other words they denied you. SORRY

Yes, it does! Nosehair, if they denied you, it could be as simple as the rater ONLY READ THE FIRST PART OF THE C&P, where the examiner INITIALLY said less likely, and stopped right there. I would call 1-800-827-1000(Peggy), ask them to send a message to your RO, stating that you are concerned the rater did not continue reading past "less likely", explain that the examiner went on to say at least as likely as not. I would also make a copy of the exam, HIGHLIGHT the at least as likely as not portion, and send it via registered mail to your RO, put over the address Attention Appeals Team, send it registered mail. Good Luck to you

    • 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.
