I'd start with the rating decision letter to better understand how they came to their conclusion. Look under REASONS AND BASES and see exactly why they made each decision. The VA is required to justify every approval and denial. If you can post those contents (omit/redact anything personal), it would be helpful for members to offer an opinion.

I would appeal to the BVA, get IMO's if you can afford it, they are expensive but pay off in the long run.  An IMO to the BVA on top of a denial that shoots the denial reasons down usually wins.  Just make sure to have all of your records available to the doctor so he can say he read your STR's.  Do as Vync also advised.

As stated above an IMO does go along ways (even though it is sad to have to spend our own money to prove our disability) but in my case that is won my appeal to the  BVA. tHE doctor gave sound reasoning plus mentioned that they went through my STR, in fact he referrenced some of my doctor visits in my STR. In my case I looked at spending the money for an IMO as an investment to winning my VA claim. When I won I received a nice retro check since my original claim went back over 4 years.

Good luck

Well I posted on this but must forgot to submit....dang  hope my memory is not getting that bad just yet.

basically mention what the others have mention Vync, Vetquest,Paul  HAVE GIVEN GREAT ADVISE

Also to add  this if the DRO did not read your IMO  or the DBQ the Dr filled out  this could be a CUE. if it would have change the outcome.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
