  1. If PTSD rating comes back at 10% I will submit a higher level review appeal.
  2. Thanks Doc25! Already have OSA w/ CPAP in record since 2012 I did submit a PTSD DBQ from my private psychologist. It was rated at 70% My DoD psychiatrist initial PTSD exam scored my PCL-5 at 65 Will the above submitted evidence help?
  3. Thanks Vetquest. I agree with your assessment. Broncovet: i did mention SC in my post. Specifically “SC diagnosed and treated by Psychiatrist while active duty “ -thanks to all
  4. Oh my. Interesting response. I am still on active duty filing via BDD. Diagnosed with PTSD while on active duty was told b/c diagnosed while on active duty it is SC. No?
  5. I am having terrible luck with VA C&P exams. Any guess as to my rating? SC diagnosed and treated by Psychiatrist while active duty Here are highlights of PTSD DBQ.
