Hi 1%’s. I stumbled over this site and this is a great resource! I never knew it was here. Read some great posts and I will admit I need some advice/help. Been abused by the VA for years and never got an guidance on what I should be doing. Lots of guesswork on how to handle this.
I used to be in great shape-tours to Iraq and Afghanistan turned my lungs to junk. Rated at 10% for asthma. I have read that if I take my inhalers every day I can push this up to 30%. How should one go about doing this? Just file a claim with the VA or use a local doctor first? But this past year with the flu season its been brutal.
Which leads me to my second question-been diagnosed with sleep apnea-is there a nexus letter that I can use? Never had sleep apnea before-come home from the stan and I have asthma and apnea. Been recommended a CPAP machine.
Also have some PTSD-should I include that in the nexus letter. Just a bit confused about nexus letters and what they do. Help?
