July 8- VA RATING 90% received, what’s weird is they didn’t ever make a decision on my sleep apnea or migraine claim even though I have a CPAP. But I can always appeal after I get out and get that added.

I did call and ask them to send me the decision letter which outlined all of the percentages, and my sleep apnea and migraines were not even listed on the letter. It wasn’t even deferred. They just never considered it.

Was the condition listed when you filled out the paperwork with the MSC? When you go online to VA.gov they list everything you have claimed. If its listed there they should have looked at it.
 
Yes they were they just didn’t look I guess
If listed on form but nothing on the proposed ratings reach out to your MSC to find out what is going on. Don't let it go. They should rate everything if they can.

It wasn’t on my 526EZ, but I claimed it during my general health exam and DBQ’s were filled out and a sleep study was done
 
The 526ez is the main document for VA claims, the SHA is more DoD side but is used for evidence later on possibly. Why wasn't it listed on the 526? My 526 has all my 90 claims on it.

Thats the issue. You can bring it up during exam. You can have medical records on it but you won't get anywhere without a claim for it. Ask your MSC if its too late to add it. If it is you will need to file a claim for it after you get out. Maybe you can do a BDD as another option...
 
I had something similar happen. Bring it up with your MSC and they should send over another 526 that you will sign. You'll have to do another C&P exam for those items but that will probably be scheduled after you get out just because of timing.
 
Yep

Yep she said once I sign for my ratings to do the 526EZ but she said since the exams are done already I shouldn’t have to do anymore. She called it “The VA inviting more claims” since the exams are done already, the VA is saying I should and can claim more
 
Yep

Hopefully the sleep apnea will take you to 100
