This is my second go around with the VA out of Houston and now Salt Lake.... either I hire a professional to fight this or go with the local VA reps to assist. I hate someone telling me what I did or did not have while active duty just because it's not in my record book. Hell SA was not something the doc's looked for when you went to sickbay....they talked more about STD's than anything else. It's enough to make you want to not even try.
Yes I had my study be it after service, the death of Reggie White and the cause of his death hit me like a ton of bricks cause I had the same for years while active duty.
I have and use the machine.
I have high blood pressure (during service and now)
I'm still tired at times and lose train of thought while speaking or just in general
I could go on, but it's a big let down when your own VA make you go through a bunch of red tape to prove your point.

If I am diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, and I elect to have surgery on the throat or nose, or wherever and the apnea is cured, Do I still get a disability when I retire? I know the CPAP machine is a automatic percentage, but what if they fix it/help it through surgery?
Should I go with a CPAP for disability purposes?
