Hello all! New around here but I’ve visited this site on many occasions for claims help. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for their service and everyone’s advice/input on the claims process.
So a little background on me and my question. I served from 2007-2012 (Army). I’ve deployed to Iraq in 2009-2010 and also a recipient of the CAB as well as had multiple encounters of IEDs. Submitted a claim for migraines (secondary to PTSD) this past May after getting diagnosed from the VA for migraines due to mental health condition. Initially was seen from a TBI specialist at the VA to see what the heck is going with these symptoms, but she came to the conclusion that my TBI symptoms, mostly headaches/migraines were due to my mental health. Got prescribed meds all and that fun stuff but no scans or other tests. C&P Exam in July and it seems favorable. September comes around claim gets closed, contacted my VSO and it seems it was denied.
Waiting on the brown envelope to see the details of denial, but checked ebennies and seems there’s a new pending disability posted 9-17-2019 “Afd For Dro Decision 06/20/2019”. VA.gov status shows closed for claim submitted on 5/31/2019, but also shows another claim for migrains as “we don’t know your status” I”m all sorts of confused and I know that these claims works in mysterious ways sometimes, but does anyone know what “Afd For Dro Decision” means? Afford for DRO decision? Never submitted any appeals yet as I haven’t received the letter, so maybe my VSO did something? I know these websites are never up to date and I shouldn’t rely on them, but also confused on why VA.gov still shows a status is closed but migraines still open (didn’t submit any claims besides migraines).
Sorry for being all over the place. First time posting. Any insight would be appreciated.
