I am in the National Guard. From 2012-2014 I was on ADOS (Title 32) Orders. Towards the end of the orders I developed heart issues. Initially, while I was still on orders I was diagnosed with Recurrent Pericarditis, but the doctors said there may be more problems including Burgada Syndrome. After the diagnosis, my orders were cut due to state budget cuts. I filed with the VA (for pericarditis and other knee and back issues) and received a rating in December of 2015. I was able to use the VA to go back to a cardiologist and was finally diagnosed with Brugada syndrome. I received an AICD the following month. I filed with the VA for brugada syndrome with AICD implant and received a 100% T&P rating. Since March of last year I have been playing a back and forth game with my unit trying to get all the paperwork, NCOERs and Contract Extensions needed for a MEDBoard. Hopefully all my paperwork will be current this drill so I can finally get my packet to State and start the process. My questions are: - Can the medboard process affect my VA rating if I am found fit for duty? - Since I wasn't officially diagnosed with Brugada Syndrome, it was only suspected while on orders, could that effect it being considered occurring while on active duty? - Could this be enough to medically retire me since I have not reached the 15-20 year mark? Other information: - I have not actually had an episode where my heart has stopped. For some reason unknown to doctors, I have had episodes where I have had passed out for sometimes a few hours only to be shaken awake, sometimes violently by my wife. Just light headed, fluttering heart, then poof, people are yelling and shaking me. - I have been in the Guard since 2006, and have 3, almost 4 years of active duty time.
