TBI and allergic to most drugs


armorer

Question

Do you have to do TBI and mental health drugs to get rated over 30% if you have a current nexus (100%) and IMO (70%)?

I am chemically sensitive 1/8 Cherokee Indian as 20% of you may be.

I refuse to be a dead lab-rat for drug companies. I just have done the mildest dose (10 mg) of the mildest anxiety drug flouxetine, and had internal bleeding, open sores due to Sun exposure (!!), intoxication, and bowel/bladder elimination restrictions (in 4 days.) So now they want to try some other unproven drug for sleep: an SSRI which is an internal organ killer - suicide, kidneys, liver, heart, seizures? What the hell, it's not their body and they get paid by the drug companies to kill us (??)

** Is that the only choice? Are we coerced into killing ourselves internally for drug company test-rats to receive compensation for our service connected injuries? That is not right.

 

Peace.

Due to my Chronic Crohn's Disease, and 2 blood transfusions, I am not able to take most medicines like normal people. I will say that I have tried to take most Meds that Docs have attempted to use to treat my multitude of health issues, both physical and mental. To be honest, for the most part, whether you take meds or not has nothing to do with Hard Physical Medical Evidence like, X Rays, MRIs and other evidence. I have had easily over 50 scans, or MRIs of some sorts over the last couple years, and that alone smacks the Docs with hard evidence that cant be argued. Again as stated in the CFR guidelines, most disabilities are granted SC based on Disability, Condition, and Symptoms. Good luck

Cool! Could you please point me to the CFR guidelines for TBI, TDIU, Anxiety, and secondary to TBI/ headaches, sleep apnea, depression, Tinnitus-hearing loss-vertigo/Menierres?

CFR guidelines were very effective in getting Chapter 31 educational benefits. Unfortunately, I failed my school's exit board exam 4 times before I got my TBI Dx (doah!) I spent months of living expenses on high dollar tutoring programs (twice) that were pretty much for nothing except wasting precious time: something I never have enough of these days with chronic fatigue and a slow brain.

Thanks again for the hope and leads.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • 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
