ED and anxiety medications

Question

I am now 100% P&T with SMC S.  I was thinking about filing a claim for ED due to the medications I take.  I have had this problem noted first in 1995 in my VA records and now am fully ED.  I filed in 1998 and was denied right off the top.  Anyone else filed for this?  What was the outcome?

I sent you a PM.  As always, you will need a medical nexus to sc SMC K, for ED.

You need a E.D. Diagnoses and a Dr to nexus the Meds to your now fully E.D.  they probably won't go back to 1998 when you first filed for it  b/c you didn't have E.D. back then  Unless you did have a diagnose for it back then and taking the Blue Pill or the injections?

  then they may go back to that date  but if you was recently diagnose from a qualified Dr (urologist) they will probably go from that date as for as EED. 

If they award the E.D. They will Service Connect it as secondary claim but rate it at 0% but will be paid about 105.** in addition to your other .S.C. Disability's

 Although there is no specific disability rating for erectile dysfunction. Instead, the VA rates the condition under 38 C.F.R. § 4.115b.

I just got approved for ED and all it took was an IMO and IME from a doctor. They will probably want another opinion from a psychiatrist or as Buck said a urologist. I am not on any medication but I have talked to my psychiatrist about this in the past.

Thanks guys.  They will not rate it to the date it was reported as they did not get serious about it.  I am thinking about getting a letter from my doctor and taking my chances at a C&P.

If you have your nexus, diagnosis, and in service event or aggravation documented, then VA should "not" ask for a C and p exam.  That is called "developing to deny", and its prohibited.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
