There is a wide range of conditions that may qualify as Veterans’ disabilities and warrant benefits, including:
PTSD. Veterans who have engaged in intense and prolonged combat are at risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This anxiety disorder is known by various names including “shell shock” and “battle fatigue”. It is also now recognized as a serious and debilitating condition.
Traumatic Brain Injuries. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) have emerged as a leading Veterans’ disability among service members who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe. In some cases, TBI can lead to permanent disabilities.
Toxic Exposure. The VA provides compensation payments to chronically disabled Gulf War Veterans with undiagnosed illnesses that may have been caused by exposure to chemicals used during battle. Veterans of Vietnam may also be entitled to benefits related to exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides.
Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a common health disorder characterized by flare-ups of fatigue, widespread pain, stiffness and persistent tenderness in multiple areas of the body. Studies show Gulf War Veterans are diagnosed more frequently with fibromyalgia than the general population.
