What is the 30%  SC for now? Is it for the migraines?

The IMO doc diagnosed somatic symptom disorder, which could be associated with the migraines...but I did not see that mentioned in the IMO....the BVA has some cases whereby  Somatic Symptom disorder was found secondary to SC disabilities, characterized as part of other SC MH disabilities.

The IMO doc seemed to have the ER Certificate dated 1984 from the Army Health service clinic...

What was the diagnosis on that document?

I didn't see specific reference to any entries ,other than that one,that might have been  in your SMRs.

Did this doctor have a copy of your complete SMRs and also your personnel file?

I was a little surprised to see such a long IMO  yet without any specifics as to your military records.

I will re read it all again but hopefully others will chime in.

What was the claim actually filed for....somatic symptom disorder as a secondary condition?

I didn't not see the secondary condition mentioned nor the medical rationale for it,except for the last page where the doc said as likely as not and checked Secondary.It is a lot to read.

The doc had "available" medical records.....what records did he mean?

Hi Berta

Thank you for responding! The 30% is for pes planus.

My appeal have three contentions which are conversion disorder, migraines and cervical radiculopathy. 

This IMO suppose to be for the conversion disorder. I'm currently diagnosed through VA as having adjustment disorder. 

He went on to say that my symptoms are more of somatic symptom disorder rather conversion and that it's secondary.

My SMR/CFile/VA treatment records were available to him. The diagnose on the 1984 document was conversion disorder, as well as entries of being seen at Schofield Barracks Mental Health Clinic. This date is where I was hospitalized at Tripler Army Hospital and got diagnosed there. My thing is that there are numerous documents pertaining to this diagnose.

I do not know if he is saying secondary to migraines or not!

I can see a lot of your points and am wondering myself now. Thank you so much!

    • 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.
