Clusterheadache

C&p Results?

Question

Hello all, new to this forum and here to get some good advice on husbands current situation with the military and his eventual discharge. He is not doing very well regarding his mental state and the military knows it as well as myself.
Anyways. He went to his c&p exam a couple weeks ago and I just got those results in the mail and need help understanding them.

Basically here is the summary.

Time lost from work in last 12 months: 6 weeks (should be more).
Problems related to occupational functioning: decreased concentration, poor social interaction

Axis I: obsessive compulsive disorder, depressive disorder
Axis II: none
Axis III: cluster headaches
Axis IV: marital problems, separation from service
Axis V: global assessment of functioning.
Score: 40 time frame: over past year

Comments: pt is severely impaired. GAF is 40 for the OCD and 50 for the depressive disorder. The OCD is the primary and the depression is secondary and due to the OCD and it's affect on his life and career.
It also states he has sleep impairment and severe anxiety and panic attacks when driving which he avoids and suicidal thoughts without plan or intent at this time. And it also states he doesn't go into stores amongst other things.

So basically I'm trying to figure out what our future situation is as far as disability because I look at my husband and it doesn't look good from that standpoint.

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks [/html]

They should give him a medical discharge but probably won't. I feel VA will rate him at 50% but should rate him at 70% w/TDIU - 100%. A GAF of 50% or lower should be 100%. He could probably win TDIU or 100% but would need to survive on whatever the VA gives him for probably 3-5 yrs. jmo

Thanks for the reply, the military doctors seem pretty certain he will be medically separated but for retirement or just plain discharge I don't know. He has served for ten years now and has no prior history of these mental illnesses before entering the military. It just seems like a pretty dark future considering he doesn't seem employable at the moment and we have 3 young children so not sure what will happen.

He should be medically retired w/30% or more, which should bring Tricare for life and some money. Be careful of any type of buy out as you will have to repay it before getting any VA money. 100% from VA would pay $3082 a month tax free and would be P&T, thus paying college for wife and kids, plus ChampVA medical insurance for wife, plus children until finished college. He'd probably be eligible for SSDI, w/benefits for wife and children, also.

when did he re-enlist last and how long before his enlistment runs out? They might just bar him from re-enlistment and run the clock out on him, I suggest you talk to JAG and see what your options are if this is the route they decide to take it would seem after 10 years of service they would have some responsibility........but I have been out since 1991 active duty I have no idea what they are doing these days but I saw plenty of dirty tricks back in the 70s

good luck and keep asking questions it is your life and the kids as well as your husbands future you are dealing with there are no stupid questions at this point

Thanks for the responses. He still has 3 years and some months left on his contract. The exam doesn't state whether or not it was service connected, but it does state in one way or another that he started showing symptoms while in the military so I'm not sure if that is going to be an issue or not. If the military finds him unfit and he gets rated then that is my main concern. It's just so scary and I'm worried about our future.

      If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.

    • 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.
