When I first filed for disability they sent me to VES a third party VA examiner and they diagnosed me with unspecified anxiety disorder with OCD and gave me a 30% rating. I filed an appeal and did my form 9 in July. On Aug 19th the VA changed my diagnosis to Chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, Insomnia disorder related to another mental disorder, and Major depressive disorder. I received an supplemental statement of case today and referred my VA evidence from July 8 to Aug. 19.I have been building my file with therapy and now I am awaiting starting the PTSD therapy program. I intended to build this evidence and submit it at my hearing, Am I wrong and should I take what I have now and turn it in???. Since they gave me the correct diagnosis finally am I going to get all this included in the appeal or should I file a new claim for all the above diagnosis I have received? Thanks in advance for any information and advice you may have and I look forward to hearing from you all.
Oh, also insomnia.
Charlie, thats hella interesting about the evolution of the word assasins. Im going to have to look that up.
I think I should ask for adderall again, continue the quetiapine and ditch the rest. But I can only suggest as the doc is controlling what I take. What rubs me the wrong way most is how i talk about existing problems and get no response, just computer clicks - then its time to talk about upping the dose, as if the bad symptoms I just mentioned didn't exist. Appointment coming up in a week.
I file a claim for bilateral hip condition ( arthritis) and they didn't order a c and p exam. I'm waiting to see the outcome of the claim, I feel it's in my favor because I sent in all the evidence showing I have arthritis of the hips. This claim is secondary to an already SC condition. Good Luck Gunny Motto!
Its hard to get colon polyps S.C. B/C There is not a diagnostic code.
Because colon polyps are not assigned a specific Diagnostic Code the RO rated them under 38 C.F.R. § 4.20 by analogy to irritable colon syndrome, 38 C.F.R. § 4.114, Diagnostic Code 7319. The evidence currently available, however, is insufficient for rating purposes. As such, a new examination is in order. 38 C.F.R. § 3.159.
