  • 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.

I have no information regards a heat stroke claim, however, I will be very interested in your outcome. 

I was medevaced out of Iraq with heat stroke/exhaustion in '03 to Kuwait City Hospital for 4 days, then RTD.

Curious what symptoms you claimed and what they will say, and what scorecard they used,

Keep us posted,

Hamslice, I claimed residuals of heat stroke. I have it in my service medical record and did not think I d even get an exam for it. I spoke with the examiner about my heat intolerence. Basically not being able to be outside in the heat or direct sun. She wrote at least as likely as not and stated I did not have issues before the heat stroke.

@Phild523, the bad news is that they might rate you as 0%.  I do not know what they would rate you as.  They finally rated me for PTSD, they said my heat intolerance was all in my mind, never mind the 108 degree temperatures in my medical records.  They actually tried to say my temperatures were the result of my mind causing the problem.  The good news is the attached PDF.  The other good news is that if you start to suffer neuropathy later in life they may rate you for that.  It was a long haul but I was rated for neuropathy due to my heat injuries.  I was also rated for migraines caused by my heat injury.

The biggest fight you will have is that they say a heatstroke does not cause residuals that can be rated.scan0101.pdf

Sorry to be so negative but I fought for five years to be recognized by the military and thirty-five years with the VA.

First, a rating of 0% for a service connected disability is not bad news, definitely not great, but not bad.  I have a 0% service connected disability that has a 30% secondary to it.  So, there is hope.  NOT service connected is bad.

As far as my heat injury goes, I am service connected for a bunch of things already that could be attributed to the heat injury, so not sure what I would gain.  However, I do have a new claim going forward that I have a shot at and might add both the heat injury and the Gulf War Syndrome as possible causes.  Let them do the work.

Definitely not a long shot as I was treated while in service and now take meds for.

As always, it means nothing unless you make the claim,

Hamslice

And thanks for the PDF, worth the read for me.  I was in Iraq when that was written.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
