      Hi Josh. I retired last year and just recently submitted my claim and took my VA physical. It looks clear that they will award me for meniere's disease because of my symptoms and diagnosis while on active duty. My question to you is, how do they determine the frequency of vertigo attacks beyond what I say they are?

        Another thing to keep in mind. The VASRD allows for two methods of rating Meniere's: a rating based on the frequency of attacks (30,60, or 100% increments) whether you have hearing loss and tinnitus or not. With this rating, you will not receive a rating for hearing loss or tinnitus since it is already considered to be combined.

        Or they can rate you separately for hearing loss (0-100%), peripheral vestibular disorder (10 or 30%), and tinnitus (10%). They would then use their normal calculation for combining these three. The method they use to rate your Meniere's will be the one most beneficial to you.

        I tell you this so that you are aware that it may take longer than normal for them to calculate the two ratings. As always, there are MANY factors that could affect your timeline with the VA but for perspective, I filed on 1 Jan 2011 and just received my ratings on 9 Aug 2012 (19 months).

    Diagnosed with Meniere's Disease in 2007. After a PCS, when I got to my next base, my new commander decided to push for a MEB. My package was sent to IPEB on 8 Oct 2010. It returned 22 Nov with 100% and placement on the TDRL. I retired 30 Dec 2010.

    I had my TDRL eval in June 2012. It came back 2 weeks later, moving me to PDRL and kept at 100%. I concurred and received orders shortly after. Officially removed from TDRL and placed on PDRL 15 Aug 2012.

    I applied for VA compensation on 1 Jan 2011. The decision was finally made on 9 Aug 2012. I was awarded 100% P&T with IU.
