Some of you know, I’m new to all of this. I feel like I’m trying to build a 5,000 piece puzzle with no picture or instructions to look at. I currently have 10% SC for Tinnitus. I have a C&P scheduled for the 18th of November for my PTSD caused by MST Claim. I have a ton of things in my SMR’s as well as CMR’s that I have no idea how to connect the dots on. Is there some “place” or “person” that assists with this stuff??? I feel lost, and I’m a Data person.
I have currently diagnosed conditions:
1. Carpal Tunnel
3. IBS/Spastic Colon
4. Current Gastritis
5. Just had my Tonsils out at 46 (yep…tonsil lesion after decades of recurrent pharyngitis/Strep/Tonsilitus)
6. Lower back disk degeneration (been on my Xrays for years)
7. Arthritis in hands (not RH)
8. Cold Sores
10. Right Hip (Injections a few months ago)
11. Vertigo (I believe it’s Motorist Vestibular Disorientation, but the one time I asked my PCP about it, they thought it may be my allergies causing it)
I left service back in 1996. I had just had my first child and was still recovering from the affects of Pre-Eclampsia. ( All over my SMR’s.) No physical at Separation. I have things in my SMR’s where I had Asthma as a child but no issues since early childhood (on my Entrance paperwork). I also have an entry where they state there was a review of my Medical Records (Security Review for Above Top Secret) and “No Chronic Illnesses” or something to that affect. I literally had 9 cases of URI/Bronchitis/Phneumonia or a related lung issue in my 5 years of service logged in my SMR’s.
There was 12 cases of Strep/Pharyngitis/Tonsillitis along with a visit for some stomach issues that went on for several weeks (pretty sure this is when my IBS started showing up), a broken 9th rib (got kicked by a horse in Germany), Left Ankle Overuse Syndrome (I don’t know why it says this because I’m pretty sure that’s when I got sever shin-splints in both legs), Right ankle sprain, left knee strain, left hand and wrist injury, left thigh myalgia 2nd degree strain..then I started having to be given meds for allergies/Asthma episodes again the last few years in service. I had a ganglian cyst removed from my right hand just a little over a year after I left service…I’ve read there isn’t a “known” true cause but arthritis can be a possible cause…
I’m just overwhelmed with what relates to what and so forth. My Carpal Tunnel…you know they’ll try to say that’s 100% due to my work as a Data Analyst when the “know” hand/wrist injuries as well as job duties that require repetition also contribute…I even have a note in my SMR’s about my fingers being numb while I was pregnant, but I guarantee they’ll attribute that to the Edema from the Pre-E. So…..how do you work through it all in the best way NOT to screw yourself????
