  • 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.

Veterans Law Blog strategy vs eBenefits

Question

Posted (edited)

I studied Veterans Law Blog and he recommends mailing in your claim and organizing the documents like so (see attached). However, is this the old school way to do it?

The only way to do this on eBenefits is to type everything out and attach it as a file in supporting documents. And it would be a lot of files

One important thing you have is s-c of GERD; you have STR that it occurred while you were in and you have it now. GERD is a tough one because it is going to be hard to prove nexus. Almost anything you come up with they will deny and say it was caused by something else. Your weight, for example, which wouldn't be allowed as s-c. So, don't play doctor; get a good IMO from an expert to support the STR you have. One possible connection could be from meds prescribed by the VA for other s-c. disability One example is meds for b/p. Some can cause GERD. But whatever, it is definite you need to get a good diagnosis.

Some good info from geeky and GB Army.

be sure to file before your cut off date of your ITF.

IS THAT THE 27TH JUNE 2019?

Remember to file before midnight of that date  its better to file earlier just in case an internet glitch or delay. they will let you know they got your claim/claims  be sure and check the date.

Good Luck!

That's rough. Severe GERD is so bothersome. 

In my case I really don't know what caused my GERD. I just started to get it during service, had an endoscopy, and had to go to the emergency room a few times for it. So just by chance it started during service. I don't think being in the Army caused it at all...

In this case, is it even contemplated by the VA to be service connected or not at all?

 

For the Nexus statement, is this done as part of Statement in support form or separately? 

Stress can cause GERD but you really don't need to know why you have a condition. Just tell them when it started and what you was doing at the time I.E. down range with poor living conditions, being attacked, etc.... Don't over think it.

Thanks geeky and bucky for all the great info. I filed my claim last night! So it is rolling now. 

Is the 1800 827 1000 number reliable for technical help? For the life of me I can not find where to upload supporting documents to add to my submitted claim.
