    • Howdy all,

      The VA DRO denied my claim for an earlier effective date for my sleep apnea. They originally denied it in 2008 but granted it in Nov 2019 secondary to my GERD. I was rated for GERD in 2001. So I had it in 2008. I have attached the 2008 denial, 2018 approval, and the NOD SOC. All of my medical files and the medical articles and VA Citations referenced were in existence in or before Jan 2008. The only new items were the NEXUS letter from Dr Bash and a few extra buddy letters. The original denial states that my medical records show no diagnosis or treatment and only isolated complaints of symptoms. The denial does not even list my wife's or my lay statements as evidence reviewed. I have symptoms listed numerous times in my SMRs:

      a. Medical visit dated 24 Feb 76 for problem sleeping and depression.
      b. Physical exam dated 24 Jan 79 listed frequent/severe headaches" dizziness, and
      nervousness.
      c. Physical exam dated 07 Nov 83 listed frequent/severe headaches.
      d. Physical exam dated 16 Jan 85 listed frequent/severe headaches.
      e. Admitted to hospital 05 Aug 86 for chest pains and anxiety.
      f. Medical visit dated 14 Jul 87 for problem sleeping and morning confusion.
      g. Physical exam dated 25 Feb 88 listed dizziness.
      h. Physical exam dated 07 Oct 91 listed frequent/severe headaches
      i. Physical exam dated 25 Aug 93 listed headache.
      j. Hernia repair surgery dated 22 Ang 94 surgeon had to insert devices of some
      kind in each of my nostrils that went down into my throat to keep rny airway
      open and stop my disruptive snoring.
      k. Physical exam dated 29 Sep 99 listed frequent/severe headaches.

      So could you all take a look and let me know what you think.

Not quite ED but the opposite question

Question

So when I started anxiety/depression meds. a few months back I haven't been able to finish with my partner which i know isn't ED but I guess they call it delayed ejaculation. This is a concern and all though you wish you had this issue most of the time failing to finish isn't awesome for either person. I've tried a couple things to help the situation but clearly it has changed dramatically since meds. Is there code for this? Thank you

@Riplip

I take antidepressants and I have this problem. I'm not a doctor, but I read on the internet that antidepressants can cause this. I'm in my 20's and this is problematic.

If you are taking antidepressants for a service connected issue like I am then maybe it can be claimed. I'm not sure about the pyramiding effect though. My SC hearing loss gives me anxiety/depression which I take the meds for which is causing this issue.

Yes they can cause it  but as I got older no problems there until I started taking medications for PTSD.  This is what a VA  Urologist mention about what related to and the cause of my E.D.

A Male can have  other problems other than not finishing  or finishes to soon  or can't get erection  this is why he needs to see a Urologist Specialist.

However

 not not finishing is a much more difficult problem  than finishing to soon and an underlying problem could be the cause as well and should be seen about.

I was awarded smc K for ED secondary to major depression.

Quick little update to this issue. Its been since May and I've been through 4 different medications some adding crazy side effects like cold sweats , bad dreams, more anxiety and that type of stuff. Still have the ED and today I go to a C&P for it. I'm trying for SMC K since the research I've done and what the fine people here think I believe I should get it. If I have to stay on these meds. and they can't find one that works then ED it is I guess. Kind of sucks. As soon as I hear back or have more info., I will add it in here. Maybe somebody else has the same issue and this could help them. Thanks

Riplip If the meds don't work, or have bad side effects, you don't have to take the meds to get SMC(k). Don't let them say that to you. It's like hearing aides; just because you don't wear them doesn't take away the fact that you can't hear. Have a listing of the different meds that were prescribed, and what side effects/results from taking them to bring to the C&P and show them. If you can show s-c for the ED, like taking meds that VA prescribed FOR A S-C disability, I expect you will get the grant. IMO
