  1. Thank you vetquest. I do have 70% symptoms, but he only marked a few. Not all that I informed him. They are listed in the medical records and lay statements. Hard to get them all listed when he was looking at the clock for the next exam.
  2. Doc25, I also got the medical opinion. DX was PTSD, stressor was Nexus, and "at as likely". 50 or more.
  3. Filed claim Jan 2019, Exam Feb 2019 with VES, got DBQ last week from RO. Thank you for all the help. DBQ redacted.pdf
  4. REDACTED DBQ. Thank again for the help. DBQ redacted.pdf
  5. Went to the Los Angeles RO and was able to get my medical opinion and DBQ. At least I don't have so much to worry about. I was DX with PTSD from 1 stressor. DR said other stressor did not meet Criteria A. Does it matter to be DX for PTSD under 1 stressor or multiple stressors? Criteria A: Box 1 Criteria B: Box 3 Criteria C; Box 1 Criteria D; Box 5-6 Criteria E: Box 3 and 6. I believe 1 an 2 should have been. In med notes. Criteria F, G, H: Box 1 Criteria I: Box 1 Symptoms: Box 1-3, 7-8, 18-20, 22 I believe missed #13. In Lay statements Other symptoms: Yes; 1. issues with authority 2. fear related to work 3. Wife added before Army was normal person (would hang out, had friends, after incident different) not a social person, dissociative for up to a few minutes ( I did not know this before), and that I am tangential (need to look up now) at times. Knowing I am officially DX is a big weight lifted. Thank you all for the help in locating records and other information. A huge help. Claims notice says rating estimate is March 12.
  6. Vetquest, Both the VA medical center and the Los Angeles RO are not too far. Is the standard VA request form good enough? How soon to try to get the information?
  7. Had the exam today, and lasted an hour. Was a PhD Doctor from Las Vegas. My wife was allowed in, and was able to contribute. My wife was able to add things from another point of view. My stressors were non-combat. My only concern was his question about why I thought one of my stressors was related to PTSD. That was the proposed Article 15, and spiced with chain of command destroying evidence and threating me. I did not like his tone when he commented about my requesting a court-martial. I told him that was because they had to prove their case and I was innocent. Chain of Command ultimately gave me a Letter of Caution, took my team away, and sent me to another company. Oh, and then was harassed, because I did not want any promotion, by every chain of command I had till I got out. I did ask, but said the VA was paying him. So I just have to wait for the rating for the diagnosis, and maybe a FOIA for the DBQ. Dr. recommended being checked for sleep apnea. Said that my eliminate my nightmares and ability to go back to sleep. I did cover most symptoms I have in my Vet Center records and statements. Sorry for rambling, still reeling from exam.
  8. Shrek, Have not been awarded. Just filed my claim Jan 10. This is my first C&P for that claim.
  9. Vetquest, Thank you for the help. I do plan to do as you have written. Stressing out now about the exam, what will I say and so on. I at least have that day and the next requested off in case I need it. Thank you again.
  10. I have my PTSD claim C&P scheduled for Thursday. The exam was set up by VES. The examiner is a PHd out of Las Vegas/Arizona/CA that does C&P exams. My question: Can my wife sit in the exam? She knew me before, during, and after the Army. We were married the last few years of service, and after my incidents.

  13. Well I was incorrect. Had the notice when I got home. Exam is set for next week. VES did send the Doctors information, and he is qualified to diagnose. He does a lot of C&P exams.
