    LIMDU for Chronic Vertigo and Possible Meniere's disease

    I'm not really sure how to start this so I'm just going to dive in. I have been AD Navy for about 4 years and I have loved it. I deployed and I had the best experiences of my life. About 8 months ago, I started experiencing ear pain and dizziness that has now led to chronic vertigo (1-2 episodes...

    Any advice on filling out the VA Form 21-0819?

    I'm trying to get ahead of the game, as I haven't been assigned an MSC yet. I heard they will have you fill out part of the VA Form 21-0819 when you meet with them. I was wondering about "Section 11. ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS". So, this part isn't a trick or anything correct? This is where I need...

    So received my findings and I received 50% for mdd (referred condition) but looking at the 70% mark I know I fall in there so I put in a reconsideration and I just wanted to ask anyone who has been through that how much longer things would take?

    Has coronavirus affected the BCNR process?

    I was wondering if anyone knows how this virus has affected peoples cases and the BCNR processing and making decisions? Are they taking a vacation and not going to work because of it?

    So I sent a congressional inquiry to the BCNR.

    Today I sent in a congressional inquiry through my state senator. It’s been over 13 months now and I am really curious and have a burning desire as to where I stand with my pending BCNR case. All I’ve gotten from them is an advisory opinion and a docket number. I know I’m not at the 18 month...

    How do additional disabilities get added to PEB

    So I am more than likely going to be referred to a PEB here soon for chronic migraines. With that said, it looks like if my case gets sent to a PEB they will evaluate more than just what I’m being boarded for. Is this correct? I also have sleep apnea (with CPAP), depression, and anxiety. What is...

    Can you be referred to a PEB because of adverse side effects of meds?

    I posted a slightly longer version of this elsewhere, but thought the length might have scared people off. Basically my migraine meds might work, but I gained a lot of weight and can’t meet pt standards due to shortness of breath with even the slightest it of running. Am I still looking at a PEB?
