C&P For Migraines - Gulf War

Rate this question

Question

Question about an upcoming C&P exam. I submitted a claim for migraines secondary to Tinnitus (10%), Cervical Spine (10%) and Post Concussive Syndrome (10%). I have headaches almost constantly and migraines where I just need to lay down in my room for several hours or until the next day about 3 time a month. Along with a DBQ completed by my primary care physician, I submitted "buddy letters" to include from my boss who talks about how I miss time from work so often due to migraines. 

My question is, when I look at my appointment, I see the DBQ for headaches (to include migraines) but there is also a DBQ General Medicine - Gulf War.  What is the Gulf War DBQ for? Is this a good thing? What do I need to know about this before going into the exam?

 

Thanks!

Migraines are one of the symptoms of myriad "Gulf War" conditions called MUCMI - medically unexplained chronic multi-system illness (38CFR 3.317(b)). If you fall into the EOD/RAD period for anything considered Gulf War/Southwest Asia for a condition (on the list in the CFR above) manifesting to a 10% or more compensable degree NLT 31DEC2026 then you were likely scheduled for that reason.
