questions about va ratings for migraines


PEB Forum Regular Member
i have migraines that occur at a rate of about 2-3 bouts a week lasting about 30-45 minutes a piece. i have to stop doing whatever i am doing and lay down in a dark room. they are so bad that i get extremely nauseated and it gets very difficult to see. i take maxalt if i can catch the migraine as soon as it begins. i have been keeping a log of when i get the migraines for about six months and all of this is documented in my record. so my question is what rating am i looking at from the va and even though i'm being med boarded for another issue could the va add it to my unfit list? thank you

Absolutely this should be covered in your MEB/PEB. If they fail to do so, send me a PM. All conditions are required to be covered by the MEB per DoDI 1332.38. What Service are you in?
