  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Rated 0% for Migraines


So it’s been 8 years since I was rated at 0% for my migraines and has never improved since 2006. I really didn’t care I felt if something happens related to all the mess they’ve tried my wife and kids are ok because I was 100% P and T for my TBI but now even my doctors treatment is being delayed not sure if it’s because I’m only 0 % for this issue. So  I filed for an increase for the migraines I am a candidate for Botox through the choice program and was given a subscription for it by him but it was sent to the RO for approval back in May and haven’t word a word since. Hoping if this goes through for my increase, theyll see i need to get this, and to get stepping for another exam. But if in my C&P exam and cites the cause of these as my skull fracture could I submit that into the BVA as evidence my last appealed issue for service connection of my skull fracture existed in service? Apparently the RO refuted my ER doctors findings and rehab doctors and said there dx was unfounded? Sorry people I’ve been so quiet on her was hoping to take this whole summer off to be with my family but if i let this fester it will get into another delay as usual...

The VA should treat you for your migraines even if you are only 0%.  They treated me for ten years before they even made it ratable and then treated me when I was 0%.  I would start a migraine diary a

here is something else  to consider.. there are alot of very expensive new medications available, many are on the VA Pharmalary list, but they still shy away from giving them to you. The VA will always put you on the cheapest meds available, even though there may be something better.

I was prescribed Lyrica from an outside provider. Went to the VA pharmacy to get it filled in Temple tx, and they lied and said that it wasnt on the pharmalary list. After proving to them it was on the list, they then said a panel of DR s inside the VA had to vote on the matter. EVERY time I went to get it filled they fought me over it because theres no generic and its 1.000 dollars a month.

Doctor said va has you listed for just headaches she said it should be post traumatic headaches like your choice doctor puts and your primary doctor at the VA. She said I’m not the VA but I think this increase will go your way I laughed we will see I’ve  been 0 for 8 years doubt they will go high... I’m hoping this will mean my wait time for Botox will go quicker my referral was in May! The topper was I brought in my SSDI award letter stating one of the two reasons I was granted my claim was my headache condition. Anyone have any guesses of how this one will be lowballed??

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
