Question

on ebenefits my claim has said “tbi to include migraines and vertigo”

it is now in the prep for decision phase but now tbi is not listed and only 3 seperate claims for “migraines” “vertigo” “fatigue”. 

does this mean that tbi got denied and now they are just taking these things and processing?

It means you need to wait for the envelope and not worry too much about what ebenefits says.

edwards7986  Bronc offers the same advise that is routinely offered on here. It is very common  for ebenefits to be inaccurate, incomplete or not up to date. Just isn't reliable. The only thing that counts is your decision letter, the BBE, which should show up in a week or so. You just have to wait to see your decision in writing on VA letterhead. Nothing else counts. Be patient.

Please don't speculate as to what it means.  I did this and it drove me nuts for two weeks.  go master chess or get some audio books, but don't do that as it won't be what you are expecting.

Hard to say I would say ebenefits has changed. Are you referring to VA.gov the replacement did you check you current rating? It took me awhile to figure out where it was in the new website I was so used to Ebenefits. But check here for your current TBI decision.... it will have a breakdown of what was denied and rated it can’t disappear... unless processing it currently

As with my TBI they will include 3 conditions with it connected but your awaiting a C and P for each or just for the rating im not speculating this is exactly what happened to me except my 3 connected issues were lightheadedness and dizziness and not vertigo, post traumatic migraines not headaches I know they are the same thing just worded differently...and fatigue the same

Fatigue?  Sudden onset?  Could be enervations which is a sign of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE).  I'm on Keppra, a drug approved in 2015.  Started in 2015.  Works great for me.  Take a look at my posts by clicking the green L.  I have a long history of fighting the VA on TBI and other organic brain syndromes.  

Most recently, I got action by filing a Rule 21 petition at the CAVC on my 2 year old NOD citing Godsey V Wilkie and another on my 3 year old BVA remand citing the same.  Action happened.  Moved the BVA remand to a decision on April 16 granting me a new EED on my TDIU back to September 16, 1985.  And that was after an order by the CAVC to the Secretary to respond.  The responding attorney was negative and unaware the Executive Secretary, Compensation Services had rendered an April 8, 2020 response with a following DRO Decision on April 16.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”
