Welcome to Hadit.com.

It is actually quite normal to have more than 1 C&P scheduled on the same day.

Below are some links you might want to research.

Example - 38 CFR - Schedule for Rating Disability's

Tinnitus :

6260 Tinnitus, recurrent........................................ 10 Note (1): A separate evaluation for tinnitus may be combined with an evaluation under diagnostic codes 6100, 6200, 6204, or other diagnostic code, except when tinnitus supports an evaluation under one of those diagnostic codes. Note (2): Assign only a single evaluation for recurrent tinnitus, whether the sound is perceived in one ear, both ears, or in the head. Note (3): Do not evaluate objective tinnitus (in which the sound is audible to other people and has a definable cause that may or may not be pathologic) under this diagnostic code, but evaluate it as part of any underlying condition causing it.

I'm going to tell you what the examiner is going to be looking for as far as your PTSD exam is concerned.

1. You must have been somewhere where you would have, or could have been exposed to a stressful event.

2. This stressful event must have been because you were frightened or terrified of being injured or killed due to enemy or terrorist activity.

3. You must get these feelings and facts across to your examiner, for they are THE ONLY ONES now qualified to make the decision about whether or not you do, indeed, have the VA's version of PTSD.

If you, in fact, are diagnosed as having PTSD due to your service, then you may wish to make your claim, including your C&P medical notes indicating your PTSD diagnosis, on a VA form #21-526EZ "Fully Developed Claim Form".

Then, if you also have, say for example, a DD214 showing a CAR/CAB or an MOS in one of the "combat arms", or an actual notation on your DD214 of "combat", or, for example, a Bronze/Silver star, or commendation medals, etc., you want to make darn sure and send them copies of these things.

DO NOT EVER "ASSUME" THAT THE VA HAS OR WILL GET ANY OF THESE THINGS, up to and including your SMR's (SERVICE MEDICAL RECORDS), recent copies of VA medical treatment or progress notes, Service Medical Treatment Records (yes, there is a difference in these records and your SMR's). And, of course, any records that you might have concerning PRIVATE MEDICAL TREATMENT concerning your disability(s). BUT, be VEDDY, VEDDY CAREFUL that any private medical records do NOT lead the VA down the path allowing them to DENY what you might be claiming as opposed to some other treatments that you may have been receiving, not connected to your hopefully service-connected claims.

You can, if you wish, run any of the above by some of the more illustrious and more knowledgable veterans here on the hadit board, BEFORE sending the items in to the local VA Regional Office.

just sayin'..................

I have been seen by a private Psy doctor and my Combat Expsure Scale

was 28 and was given a 39-42 GAF score in 2010 and diagnoas with PTSD.

have also a Bi Polar Disorder secondary to my PTSD.

His GAF score was 39, 2010.... I have been have been attending 2 PTSD

classes a Medic PTSD class and a regular PTSD class twice a week.

I'm taking mood med's 3 time a day for depression, mood and BI Polar disorder.

No hearing in right ear at all & tinnitus right side only

I have the 3 C&P exams a week from Friday so I will try and prepare myself.

I have read its not good to look at the examier is this true.

Be nervous and dont give any info unless asked for it.

There should be a forum just for how to be in a C&P exam....

I havent given my self letter to the VA yet I was thinking about giving it

so the C&P doctor can read it & bring along all my medical info and

military info also.

I wont have any problems with stating my issues, SSDI awarded,

PTSD. being alone, not keeping a job more then 3 year all my life

missing 10 year out of my life no work...being homeless..

test or exam they ask you to take ?

just trying to cope the best i can

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
