    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

Appeal assistance please

Question

Attention all, I need assistance in writing my appeal for increase.  Below is my written statement.  Please  feel free at add or take away.

   I am requesting an increase to my disability, due to a severity increase in my urinary frequency.  This caused an increase of voiding dysfunction.  I started experiencing an increase in having to go the bathroom at night and during the day. Now I am getting up at night and going to the bathroom at least 5 times each night.  This has cause me to not have a good night sleep in a long time.  During the daytime, I make sure I know exactly where a bathroom is located due to the amount of time I am using a bathroom.

     I started going to the VA Medical hospital in DC to see what assistance  I can get for my issue. The doctor came up with a plan to give me 2 pills to help decrease the amount of times I use the bathroom.  It helps some nights and most nights id does not work.

     The new meds hs caused ED more frequently. This has cause a loss of use.  My sex life is almost gone.  I'm assuming it's one of the side affects.  The meds I am taking are Mirabegron and Tamsulosin. 

     Please pull my treatment records form the Washington DC VA medical center.

An appeal is for a formal denial.

Or maybe you are re-opening a past claim for a higher rating.....

Have you posted the denial here somewhere?

If not please cover your C file #, name, and scan and attach it here.

If it was denied, the VA gave a rationale that needs to be overcome with evidence.

Apparently this is one of your posts:

https://community.hadit.com/topic/73832-prostate-approved/page/2/#comment-474109

It helps to stay in the same thread .

That post contained a rational from the decision but we need to see the way the VA worded it.

Victor,

This appears to be a good request for an increase.  Get with a VSO so you file the proper form or use ebenefits to file for the increase.

    • 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.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
