  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

yes these 4 little words >= in my opinion Mr Veteran M  Headaches  is least likely as not related to his S.C. Depression.

usually the Dr will go into further detail   but the words is likely as not  or least likely as not  is what the VA don't dispute ..its a 50/50 tie  and reason of doubt goes to the veteran.

The Raters don't like'' could have should have''  may be''and a few others that would seem to tie it together  so they watch this carefully.

LIke Buck said, at least as likely, more likely than not, is due to...are magic to the VA. Your doctor doesn't have to state fact and regs, just in their opinion they feel the Vet's medical issue is "at least as likely as not, due to or caused by".

Thats what I was thinking.  I got a new letter that say Migraines are "more likely than not" exacerbated by anxiety depression.  Thank you.  I hope this links the Migraines into a service connection.

I got the Maybe is exacerbated before it wasn't a denial but they lumped it in with my TBI residuals instead of a seperate issue and kept me at 70 for my TBI
