  1. If u were already granted SC then your symptoms should already be documented. Another exam is not needed, for future reference the VA does not give one exam for service connection and another exam for rating. It's possible maybe if the BVA feels the exam is not comprehensive enough regarding how the disability is affecting you now.
  2. UPDATE!!! I received the statement if case which did deny PTSD claim. The reasoning was it was previously denied back in 2013 and since I didn’t appeal that decision was final. However it states: Note: Service connection was granted for other specified trauma and stressor related disorder. This grant of service connection for other specified trauma and stressor related disorder is considered a partial grant of benefits sought on appeal. If you feel the grant fully satisfies your appeal on this issue, please let us know in writing as soon as possible. So it is like I thought, PTS
  3. The point she is hinting at ratings just means she doesn't know how they work. But of course it is a good thing she is saying two things, 1. Ya condition is SC 2. She thinks it's is severe impairment I wish u the best to receive what u r entitled. Follow up if you can.
  4. I ran my case thru to a few lawyers for higher migraine rating and service connection for ptsd/major depressive disorder after three denials at the regional level. They refused to take my case for either of them.I ended up winning on my own and keeping all my retro.
  5. Ok because when I google "other specified trauma and stressor related disorder". Cases comes up and the code is 9411: Criteria for other specified trauma and stressor related disorder (DC 9411). By looking at this code it is the PTSD code so why did they call it something else.
  6. Ok know u seem to be getting what I was trying to say. How important is the diagnostic code? What I was given with was Other specified trauma and stressor related disorder vs PTSD/MDD?
  7. Before So like I said I filed for service connection for PTSD and major depressive disorder. That was not a increase/decrease. I was not previously rated for any MH, so i cannot increase or decrease for something I was not service connected for. After I previously stated I reviewed ebenefits And now have MH rating for Other specified trauma and stressor related disorder. Not PTSD or MDD which I was previously diagnosed. To be clear the DRO NOW decided to service connect and rate my claim. The question was why service connect Other specified trauma and stressor related disorde
  8. Thanks again Buck...so I filed for PTSD and MDD is was denied twice and the regional office level. First for not having a diagnosis, second for having a diagnosis more than a year after service. It was denied again at the first level, but I appealed. I got diag nosed with major depressive disorder and PTSD. Had another C&P and the DRO awarded Other specified trauma and stressor related disorder. Not PTSD or MDD. As for the percentage it was no a increase or decrease I was not rated at all for MH issues. I looked at ebenefits and my overall rating went up and I got a MH rating now.
  9. Ok I was not sure if something like ptsd could be deemed permanent but Other specified trauma and stressor related disorder could be viewed as temporary, hence most likely to be reviewed for a decrease.
  10. Disability compensation appeal updated on April 29, 2020 Status: Please review your Statement of the Case Issue on appeal: Service connection, Major depressive disorder Submitted on: August 5, 2019 It says statement if case I'm thinking they denied ptsd and major depressive disorder but granted the Other specified trauma and stressor related disorder. Thanks for the info, I am aware the all pay the same just wasn’t sure if theRe is a difference.
  11. They had granted me SC but then denied it for a CUE. Can u explain this??? I have never heard of this.
  12. I was granted SC of Other specified trauma and stressor related disorder, related to PTSD - Personal Trauma. I would like to know is there a difference. I haven't received the Statement of Case from the DRO yet. Any information would be greatly appreciated!!!
  13. U talk to your psychiatrist and psychologists for 2 years about how your traumatic experiences in the military changed you, u put in a claim and c&p examerror says less likely than not vets MR issues are from military service he sought help many years after he left service?? Is this common? I separated in 2012. Guess I wait for the denial and file a appeal. Also what is the difference with claiming ptsd vs depression?? do they both have stressors??? Do the stressors have to be good enough in the examiner's eye to be called a stressor? U tell the examiner what u went thru and h
