  • 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.

what did you tell the C&P about pad usage, frequency, dribble, Nocturia and did they actually put down what you told them?

 I am dealing with the same issue on voiding dysfunction. I don't have the letter or DBQ yet, but soon.

not all claims end in a Service Connection. In the Decision Letter you will receive, often called a Big Brown Envelope (even though many are white today),  there will be a part that says XXX was denied service connection or similar language. Hopefully there will be a Codesheet in there that shows the four digit numbers used for their category of harm  you are connected for,

Sometimes those non-connected items are marked NSC, sometimes they are not, sometimes it is written out not service connected. It just varies.

@uniccco, do not let this concern you.  I have an entry on ebenefits that says tinnitus not service connected and another entry that says tinnitus service connected.  I believe it is just sloppy record keeping.

I agree I have items on my ebenefits listed in some cases twice for the same issue saying two different ratings.... I also have some items stating not service connected.. never understood why they put non service connected issues on ebenefits but what ever they are doing its can be confusing and convoluted
