C&P for Bruxism secondary to PTSD

Question

I am rated at 30% for PTSD and I have other things pending but after returning as a door gunner in Desert Storm, I started having severe headaches and TMJ. Both have been diagnosed and DBQ done by my medical Dr stating more likely than not related to the PTSD. I have an upcoming C&P exam with QTC for my diagnosed Bruxism, related to PTSD. I have broken several  teeth from grinding at night and just broke another crown that they will see on Monday when I go in.

Anyone else ever dealt with this or have any advice? I sleep with a mouth guard but I am on my 3rd one right now after chewing threw the first two. I also have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and sleep with a prescribed CPAP machine.. Any advise is appreciated.

Semper Fi!

I filed around the middle of May. I have been diagnosed from my Dr with Migraines, TMJ, Bruxism, and sleep apnea.

I have been awarded 30% for PTSD and asked for them to review the rating and they called me back in for another C&P but I have heard nothing from that.

I an going to see QTC on Monday for the bruxism. I have broken teeth and had them fixed with crowns only to break the crowns. I sleep with a mouth guard but had chewed through two of them so far. The constant headaches and jaws hurting is getting really old!

@Stick Slinger - the new night guards are padded. I had an older one for 5 years - it did not hold up & the new ones  have a soft resilient inside. check it out.

So I had my exam today. It was scheduled at 12:00 so I got there @ 11:50. Filled out some paperwork and they took me back @ 12:20.. immediately I had a girl helping me over to get some type of Xray of my face. this thing spun around my head taking pictures I guess. So I then go and sit down waiting for the Dentist. Nice enough lady came in and asked me a few questions. I told her I had a letter from my Dr and from my Dentist that I would like to make sure she has. She said she had everything in the computer. I asked her to please look over it to make sure she had these letters. It wasn't there and she acted a little rude and asked someone to scan them into my file. So I felt better knowing she at least saw and hopefully read the letters.

She asked me a few questions and then looked at my teeth for a few seconds. Then she typed in a little stuff and told me thank you for your service and I was done.

That's it?? OK now it is 1:00 and the girl quickly escorted me to the door and told me to have a great day.. I said, "it must be lunch time for yall as quick as you are getting me out of here. She laughed and said yep..

    • 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.
