  1. Could be blood in the water. You could just request a new primary care physician because at this point your probably running up stream with this physician. Try to play the game because in the long run the only thing your hurting is yourself.
  2. Do you take NSAIDS? Do you take anything for Gerd? https://www.uspharmacist.com/article/proton-pump-inhibitors-considerations-with-longterm-use
  3. SSDI did that to me as well. Probably something the va adapted to under the new vamp system to get more exams done in a day. Personally I don’t think its accurate measure for the veteran to give a medical opinion. They probably just want a quick in and out range of motion. Remember if you currently don’t have a flare up or pain present let them know what you are limited to during a flare up. https://www.hillandponton.com/nerve-conditions-part-1/ Don’t know if you experience nerve problems but the link above explains it further in depth. (Sciatica ect)
  4. I personally would wait until your 2020 exam to request it. But I would submit a Dr medical opinion/exam that’s states the conditions are permanent and total ect ect.
  5. I would tackle each problem by severity.. your post is all over the place. “After telling me he was sure I was going to die of cancer (not his call or specialty or place to say)” 1) Do you currently have cancer or are in remission? What type of cancer? “ I use the labs ordered at the VA to monitor my health, and spotted triglycerides spiking to 400 once because of an antidepressant” https://www.cardiosmart.org/Heart-Conditions/High-Cholesterol/High-Cholesterol-Home/Very-High-Triglycerides she had to run a blood test to see where your triglycerides are at. Your levels are high. I posted a link explaining triglycerides. “* I do not need a statin for various reasons, including the fact that according to a different VA doc CT scans show my arteries completely clean” you do need to be on a statin with your levels that high or lowering your triglycerides.
  6. Congrats on the new awards Tod. I agree with Bronco on how the va does things. Your post made me think of a old article I read about combining a shoulder injury with Neuropathy. https://www.hillandponton.com/nerve-conditions-part-1/
