    Neuropsychological Testing

    I recently had my C&P/Neuro and I am clueless. The doctor told me I had a GAF of 40 with "major depression". I asked about the TBI and she stated I have one which has led to PTSD and major depression. I can't help but think the TBI claim will be lost in the shuffle so to speak.
  2. Bergie, I agree with you. I am going through the process now and even though I hope for a positive outcome, I support doing the right thing. We all know there are a ton of people out there who are abusing the system which I believe adversely affects honest veterans with valid claims. Now apparently you can be on Camp Victory sipping a Latte and eating Pizza Hut, then come home and file a claim because you were in a combat zone even though you never left the wire. I think the VA should use their resources and money to improve the process so deserving vets are processed more efficiently. Humble

    Combat Tbi

    My hearing seems to be fine now. I was told there is scarring from dive duty.

    Hey team, thanks for the responses and insight. I have never claimed anything with the VA. I just came off active duty, and during the out-processing they had a Vet-Rep who initiated this. QTC has been setting up appointments for me. I filled out the PTSD form and sent it back to the VA. The other day I had an appointment for a TBI and at that time the Doc said she was giving me a referral for PTSD. In a firefight, I had an RPG blow up 10 feet from me sending a piece of schrapnel into my Kevlar and knocking down; which is why they set me up with the TBI appointment. I gave the doc a copy of the casualty feeder card from when we returned to base. The feeder card gave the grid of the incident and stated I had a mild concussion and baro-trauma due to being hit with schrapnel.

    Combat Tbi

    I had an RPG impact 10-15 feet in front of me resulting in a large piece of schrapnel striking my helmet knocking me to the ground. When we returned to base I was diagnosed with a mild concussion and barotrauma. At my exam the other day I was given a referal for PTSD testing and a Neurological exam. Any idea of what to expect?

    I haven't seen very many posts from combat soldiers. I submitted the VA PTSD form with two stressors; incident reports depicting the firefights, Bronze Star Valor with narrative description of actions on the objective and the Purple Heart. I have a CIB from previous action. Is this what the VA needs to validate a claim? Any idea of what I should expect from here going forward?
