  • 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

Insomnia

Question

I am terrified to take this after the reviews but the first 2 drugs did nothing so I'll try. The last drug caused me to have nightmares and hit my wife in my sleep she was pregnant that time and is pregnant again with our second. I have to try it I havent slept in a few days. Wish me luck.

I hope things work out well for you.

Take the time to read the paperwork which comes with your medication. It lists all of the common, uncommon, and rare side effects which were reported during clinical trials and also after release to the market. Please understand that not all medication side effects may be known. Meds may affect different people in different ways regardless of contraindications caused in conjunction with other medications. There may also be problems with over the counter supplements or even foods, notably grapefruit. If you do have problems, be sure to notify your doc immediately. You can also contact the pharmacy and the pharmaceutical manufacturer to report on what you. Some medication inserts may also state that your doctor may have chosen the med because the benefits of a medication may outweigh any unpleasant side effects.

If you look up medication reviews on web sites, please realize that some reviews may not be accurate. Industrial sabotage is very common. With the amount of money at stake in big pharma, it would not surprise me if a competitor posts negative reviews about their competitor's medications. It happens all the time.

Good luck!

With or without medicine I go crazy in my sleep I have hit my gal so many times with sleep punches so your sleep craziness probably will always be there regardless of what medication you take temazapam helped me go to sleep every night uninterrupted most of the time stress also might be a factor in your insomnia hey if your gal stays with you knowing she can get hit at night by a mad sleeper she is a keeper for life you can also try to eat close to bedtime that might help you go to sleep better prazosin helped me with my nightmares basically you got to talk to your doctors about your problems and try the different medications until they find your right combination of medications to stabilize your condition miniature vivid nightmares waking up going back to sleep just to have another miniature nightmare is stressful in itself I hope all goes well with you eventually and you get the sleep you desire ???

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
