Hi Everyone! I am currently receiving 30% combined from the VA. 10% of which is neurologic symptoms (migranes) associated with a subdemal hematoma. Should I file for an increase now since I am getting migraines more frequently or wait til my current claim is decided (Crohn's disease). Thanks!

Have you had your c&p for the Crohn's disease yet? If you have I would wait to file the increase for TBI. If you just filed the Crohn's claim then you might as well add the TBI increase.

If you are getting them once a month now then file now. That is a 30% rating
To meet the 50% you boss should do a statement or someone you know on how you have been losing time from work due to your headaches. plus two or more of them a month.

Can you post the reasons and bases section from the rating decision that
granted the above ?
