My husband just received his ratings as 50 / 70. Based on his NARSUM and the way it was written, we were expecting the DOD portion to be at least 70%, as it read verbatim with the 70. His referring condition was PTSD, but he also had approximately 20 other issues listed on the VA side. He also still has a pending referral to Neurology for a possible TBI and his migraines (which the Army keeps writing up as occasional headaches that do not cause work related impairment - SO wrong). I am wondering if it would behoove him to appeal and try to get his numbers to reflect the NARSUM, or if by doing it we would risk them lowering the numbers even more. He truly is affected in most all areas of functioning, we can't go out as a family without him being constantly alert/ panicky, he has night terrors, depression, anxiety, and a whole gamut of other issues. I just hate to see him going through all of this. Thank you for your help!
