@  notapb1 : (18 August 2014 - 07:26 AM) Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

Almost a year to the day I initially called VA to get a claim started, I have a C & P Exam scheduled on Tuesday regarding my claim for Tinnitus and Hearing Loss.
Initially, my personal ENT told me I had tinnitus and hearing loss, but should get an in-depth hearing exam. I went to the local VAMC regarding my hearing and they sent me to a VA Hospital last December.
The VA ENT said I had hearing loss, tinnitus and ordered hearing aids for me. BTW, he did ask me if I did much shooting, I told him "not really" but that when I did, I ALWAYS wear hearing protection.
I received and started wearing the hearing aids this past March. I am assuming that my hearing loss/tinnitus disability claim should not be too difficult...?
What should I expect at the Exam?
Thanks, Dave

I would suspect the usual soft noises and tell when you hear them.

Standard military-style hearing exam - booth with headphones, low tones -> high tones, spoken word recognition, etc... Nothing to worry about.

"BTW, he did ask me if I did much shooting, I told him "not really" but that when I did, I ALWAYS wear hearing protection."

I think they are looking for whether you wore protective hearing gear in the Mil?

Or could he have meant civilian hunting season?

"I am assuming that my hearing loss/tinnitus disability claim should not be too difficult...?
What should I expect at the Exam?"

There should be a blank audio C & P worksheet here under a hadit search for AMIE worksheets.

Does your MOS or anything in your SMRs provide the nexus (link) of the current hearing problems to your service?

Like did you work on a loud runway if you were not in combat? I dont understand the 'not really part'.

I am 10% for hearing and 10% for tinnitus. The test itself is a piece of cake. Getting service connected is another story. It took ME a couple of times to get it. I have a deep sensoneural hearing loss in my left ear with no speech recognition. I have some hearing loss on my right with 94% speech recognition. I hope this helps.


A VSO once told me hearing is the toughest disability to get?

Just may be, I was denied back in 84, drop it and asked my claim to be reopen in 08,, got 2 hearing test at the VA center in Tuskegee Al. one in Dec 2010 next one was July 2011, on Aug, 4 I got the big brown envelope and I got 50% SC disabillity.20% each ear, and 10% tinitus. So don't ever give up, go and appeal it and ask for 50%. I have file a claim for PTSD waiting on word from the VA on what to do next. Good Luck
