  1. Another UPDATE: Appeal was filed, second C&P exam was performed. That nurse told me that she thought I should be checked for COPD due to smoking for years. I told her that was fine and all, but not what I was here for, and I've never been told COPD might be a problem. Had a quick exam, and a couple of weeks later received a letter from VA stating they service connected the heart attack at 10 percent, with the mandatory 100 percent rating for 3 months following myocardial infarction. But weren't done adjudicating because the C&P notes " are not clear and have been returned to the p
  2. UPDATE: Got a letter from my private doctor, a cardiologist. Letter stated that connections between depression and heart attacks are well known and well documented and it was AT LEAST AS LIKELY AS NOT that my heart attack was caused by service connected depression and anxiety. I filed the appeal on October 15. I am set for ANOTHER C&P for this Friday, but already received the enclosed letter.

I requested the C&P records so I could quote exactly what the doctors opinion was. And challenge anything else he had put in their, like alengthy interview or something. But the time it has taken to get those back has been its own challenge. Then, of course because why wouldnt it, my hard drive crashed last week, losing all of my medical records. Ill have to go back tot eh original hospital that treated me to get those. Whic
  5. Forgive me if this has been asked previously. I am trying to navigate the site and did not find anything searching for it. I am currently service connected at 50 percent for depression, listed as MDD and Anxiety. Had a heart attack last year. STEMI. CAD diagnosis. In discussing lifestyle changes, I was asked what my stress level was as far as job, home life, leisure, prior health, etc. Stress is high and depression is thick and real. Was told that the depression and anxiety COULD be a contributing factor and Id want to be as stress free as possible. Applied for secondary heart attack,
