    • Well I suppose its ok for Lady member like MS berta  but I was referring to the lady members that have Endured MST/PTSD.  I can only imagine they don't care to hear about this type of talk..although were discussing it as  Male Health problem and for the wifes. If its ok with everyone  then OKIE-DOKIE.
    • What does "non forensic DX of ptsd" mean? What I am saying is that the dx did NOT come from the c&p doc but rather my va psychologist. Make sense? im just trying to see if theres a chance with that info. Im pretty confused. I know the ptsd dx is required by a va doc per regs but just dont know that a diagnosis prior to the non favorable c&p would help.
    • Good luck. Sometimes you have to appeal. Good luck as I have had good luck on appeals. I would get an Independent Medical Opinion.
    • I had a C & P done recently., which was outsourced and not done at a VA facility.  When I called the toll free number, they told me that I need to make a written FOIA request.  They also said that the results of the exam have already been uploaded.  I would like to get my copy of the results as soon as possible and would drive down to the St. Petersburg Office to get them, but I am not getting any results trying to find out where the Release of Information Office is in St. Petersburg.  Your thoughts are appreciated.   Thank you.
    • The PTSD Forensic C & P Dr is required to be a Psychiatrist or Psychologist PhD, VA or contract Dr. The C & P exam is now based on the DSM V criteria. GAF's are no longer a significant rating component.  Keep in mind, prior PCP or Psychiatrist/Psychologist's non Forensic DX of PTSD is Trumped by the C & P Psychiatrist/Psychologist PHD's Forensic DX. The C & P Dr opined regarding Depression & Borderline Personality disorder, if Evidence of Record is currently in your C-File, a possible SC for either of those MH conditions is possible. As to your existing SA DX being SC'd Secondary to a PTSD DX, which you don't currently have, chances are slim & None. Per a Hadit posting this am, recent C & P Dr posted in the Vet's DBQ current Medical/ Scientific Articles indicating that PTSD doesn't cause SA, it's actually the other way around, SC SA can result in a Secondary SC for PTSD. Very Interesting! There are a great number of Elderly and not so Elderly SC PTSD Vets that have filed claims for recently DX SA as Secondary to their long standing PTSD SC's. This "New" SA research could be very problematic for their SA Secondary claims. Semper Fi

Update Re: Toxic Lejeune Water

1 post in this topic

In part:

"Officials with the Department of Veterans Affairs told members of a community assistance panel addressing issues surrounding historical water contamination at Camp Lejeune that related disability claims would soon be processed at a central location.

Brad Flohr, with the Veterans Benefits Administration Compensation and Pension Service Department, told the group on Thursday that all the Lejeune water claims would be sent to the VA center in Louisville, Ky., as a way to track the cases and keep the procedure for handling them consistent."

"Lejeune veterans and former residents who lived aboard the base between the 1950s and 1980s and attribute ailments like male breast cancer and non-Hodgkins lymphoma to chemical contaminants in the water have advocated for a VA presumptive policy on water cases, similar to that governing exposure to the Vietnam-era chemical Agent Orange."
