C and P exam Intent to File a Claim 2017

Question

Hello fellow Veterans, I am trying to figure out, if I can pursue a couple of service connection claims, that I was examined for during my C and P exam/ Persian Gulf exam. The first one is Esophageal Conditions: It states EROSIVE GASTRITIS OF THE GASTRIC CARDIA IS A SECONDARILY SERVICE CONNECTED CONDITION AS THE RESULT OF SERVICE CONNECTED HIATAL HERNIA. Do I file a claim for this diagnosis from my C and P exam/ Persian Gulf Exam? This was the diagnosis from the C and P examiner!

Second One is for MIGRAINES....The Opinion was MIGRAINE HEADACHES IS THE DIRECT RESULT OF GULF WAR MILITARY SERVICE....stated by the C and P examiner. Do I file a claim on this one as well?

Certainly you should file a claim on both of these conditions. But did the examiners give a medical rationale for their conclusions?

At 90% now, are you still employed?

Yes, the C and P examiner gave a rationale for both of the conditions citing service medical records (smr) and his years of practice in medicine....my exam took nearly three hours. Yes Ma'am, I'm still working, because I have a family to support. But, working in the sun all day and migraine headaches don't mix....Thank  You for your reply!

So let me understand, if i am already service connected for a condition, I can file a claim that is secondary to that service connected condition? Please Help me understand? Both of these conditions I will file a claim on. Any suggestions?

So If the compensation and pension examiner diagnose you with a condition, you can file on it? Like, the Migraine diagnoses, the rationale should say what..."servere economic adaptability"...it says that on my c and p exam!

C&P exam's can note secondary conditions, by all rights, the RO should add them to the file or send you a letter notifying you that you should apply for the secondary condition. Either way, yes, you should file for them. Its a give away more or less if you are within 1 year of discharge, and if the C&P exam occurred before your discharge it should be direct service connected either way.

    • 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.
