Audio C & P Exam On Tuesday
Posted 25 September 2011 - 04:37 PM
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?

I think they are looking for whether you wore protective hearing gear in the Mil?
Or could he have meant civilian hunting season?

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'.

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