Fast forward to last week and my claims for bilateral tinnitus, high freq hearing loss, goobered up shoulders, and sleep apnea came back as:

Tinnitis: 10%

High Freq Loss: 0%

Shoulders: Deferred

Sleep Apnea: Deferred despite there being 25+ pages of testing showing a very positive result. Guess they want their own testing?

New combined total rating: 40% - until the next budget-induced reviews come around, I guess
I got 50% for sleep apnea- but I have a documented 'severe' case...
