so I am new here I have been reading a lot on all the forums and I must say this is truly amazing! So I am getting MEB for migraines as my main reason for MEB!
I have them 3-4 times a week with aura, backs spasm and neck pain! It has been stated by my cardiologist that I have vertigo also! They don't allow me to drive or stand up for longer than 10 mins because I black out and have staggered and fainted a few times! I want help or advice hopefully this will get me a dod of at least 30%! Is this true

I got 50% for my migraines for having

I just reviewed my packet today to be sent off. My migraines are prostrating as well and my doctor recommends I get out. She had put I only receive them once a week, which isn't true. But I've done Botox and 5 medications and nothing worked. Everything was checked off "yes" as far as symptoms. What are your thoughts on what percentage I would get.?

Was that your main claim that brought you to the meb/peb? And I pray I get 50%
The DOD portion of my claim was for CFS/ME and I appealed to have by back injury added, which combined brought me to 30% DOD and permanent medical retirement.

Nala2493, hard to say what your percentage is going to be at given she mismarked what you said. I would suggest doing a VARR if you end up getting a percentage lower than what is actually warranted. The C&P exams aren't the only documentation they use for deciding your rating (they are supposed to look at every page of your medical records), but in my case I actually do believe they skipped over thousands of pages of my medical records and just used my C&P exam notes for my percentages. I can't complain given I am at a 100% though.

Don't be anxious about your ratings. I had things mismarked on my C&P exam notes too and it still worked out for me in the end. However, don't lose hope and settle for something less if you do get a rating back that is well under what is warranted. The time for that battle will come, until then relax and enjoy these last moments of your career.
