  1. Rating came in, 70% anxiety. I do attend therapy and take medication for Depression and anxiety. I am diagnosed with PTSD, major depressive disorder and anxiety secondary to IBS. I am rated only on the anxiety. Total rating is IBS 30%, Fibromyalgia 40%, Hearing 0%, Tinnitus 10%, Anxiety 70% - Total 90%
  2. Here is my recent C&P results for anxiety secondary to SC IBS and Fibromyalgia. Thoughts or opinions on SC rating? LOCAL TITLE: PSYCH C&P EXAM MA STANDARD TITLE: C & P EXAMINATION NOTE Mental Disorders (other than PTSD and Eating Disorders) Disability Benefits Questionnaire Name of patient/Veteran: Is this DBQ being completed in conjunction with a VA 21-2507, C&P Examination Request? [X] Yes [ ] No SECTION I: ---------- 1. Diagnosis ------------ a. Does the Veteran now have or has h
  3. My HL test average was 64/65 and word recognition was 84 both ears and that's 0% anyway you cut it......and if you were addressing me Gastone , I know the HL exam, especially the WR cannot be beat.....that's a given, and I have no feelings to speak of.
  4. My hearing is pretty darn bad, my tinnitus is horrible, and I still only met the criteria for 0% HL
  5. The IME report is in.......Thoughts? I warn you, it is lengthy......oddly, as much social issues, no friends, agression,etc as I have....he gave me a GAF score of 65. DrCoyleIMERedacted.docx
  6. Figured out the problem......I used an older version.....new updated Hutsky calculator says 0% for HL. So 0% HL & 10% Tinnitus.
  7. Oddly, if I plug the numbers into the Hutsky calculator, comes up 40%.....If I look at the VA's confusing ass cross reference chart, comes up 0% or maybe 10%?
  8. The results are in......looks like, after running her numbers thru the calculator it would be 40% HL, 10% tinnitus....assuming they don't deny anyway, irregardless of their own audiologists opinion......stranger things have happened! RedactedHearingResults.pdf
  9. Oh, I will....it would be awesome to watch a movie or TV without having to read the words for once!
  10. So, I had my hearing C&P and it went as expected. I haven't seen the results yet, got to check myhealthevet Monday or Tuesday, but I do know that I showed the girl my work exams from the past 10 years, which are bad, and she said her results were about the same. When the testing was over, she was talking to me waaaaay louder and told me I didn't have to wait on the rating to get hearing aids if I am interested. She said as long as I make an appointment to get hearing aids within 6 months, i don't have to re-take the hearing exam. Thoughts?
  11. Ha.......My employer went to what they call "The whisper test" last year. The nurse stands 10-20 feet away, faces away from you and says a word, you have to repeat the word. I fail it misearbly.....mostly I think because my tinnitus rings constant and loud non-stop! I'll post my C&P results around the 20th
  12. Yeah, filed tinitus too....mines constant. I know civi hearing tests are irrelevant to SC ratings.....point being, they show what can be expected on an audiogram by VA.
  13. Well, I'm an 0311 combat veteran, have a MEPS hearing test showed good hearing, boot camp hearing test showed mild hearing loss and post service that shows severe hearing loss in 1000+ Hz ranges. My company does annual hearing tests and last year they started doing a "whisper" test in 2016 , which I also fail miserably. Hopefully I can get some hearing aids!
