So guys sorry for creating a second thread but I wasn’t getting anymore responses on 1st one. So here is the sequence of events.
1) Evidence in military records of taking Unisom could indicate sleep problems. I have not gone through all my medical records but it’s somewhat tedious. I’ve attached a couple scans from my records
2) Deployed to Afghanistan have exposure to burn pits, biohazard pond (the base was basically built around the damn thing), and dust everywhere. No previous complaint but this could possibly be linked?
3) I start having headaches, fatigue, tiredness, lost interest in some things after returning. Never documented this just kept it to myself so uphill climb. Headaches continued for years until recently.
4) Get out of Military in June 2014 and have C&P exam in Oct 2014 where I am diagnosed with Hypersomnia and doc gives a 50 percent equal or greater change connection to military since within months of getting out. I did not CLAIM this and it was never relayed to me by doctors… I only know of the diagnosis due to reviewing my medical records. No diagnosis for sleep apnea at this time (see attachments)
5) It’s 2019 and I still feel like **** so I ask for another sleep study. This one has a diagnosis for mild sleep apnea and a CPAP is issued (see attachment).
Other things that happened over time… at or around 2010 or 2011 I begin putting on weight where as before I’m pretty consistently around 150. So in 2011 I’m up from 145 to 155… 2014 I’m at or around 175…and in 2019 I’m at or around 190. Potential cause of weight gain could be tied to Hypersomnia which led towards developing Sleep Apnea.
Basically I think I can connect all the dots to military… how does all this sound? I’ve asked me VA doc for a Nexus Letter before proceeding further.
