I finally got the BBE yesterday. My efforts were a total waste of time.
1) Worsening of MS–I did not have to use a walker all the time, increased urge to urinate, LOU of left hand —due to major MS flare last year. Had C&P. BUT IT WAS DENIED. MS does not ever get better it gets worse.
2) Secondary service connected cataracts due to Prednisone use for MS flares. Denied. Glad to have my eyesight of course (surgery done by local non-VA ophthalmologist—my private BC/BS insurance paid for one eye and Veterans Choice paid for other eye) but there was a time my eyesight was bad.
WASTE OF TIME GOING TO PALO ALTO VA for C & P exams. WASTE OF TIME. WASTE OF TIME.
