  1. Scene setter - Retired Navy vet who left service with 40% SC in 1981 - Degenerative joint disease - cervical spine 30%, Hypertension with mild renal insufficiency 10%, sinusitis 10%, bilateral hearing loss 0%. At this moment the individual is in a nursing home with severe dementia (does not always recognize his wife), has COVID19 (asymptomatic) and has diagnosed severe kidney insufficiency moderate to severe. I found out he had VA disability and after 2 months finally got the wife to ask the VA for what his disabilities are. She has POA for him in all matters. How do we get him evaluated

  3. Welp, Just found out they closed my claim. Surprise surprise, nothing changed EXCEPT they reduced my GERD from 60% down to 10%! WHY and What the?! So apparently that random C&P without my knowledge played a significant part. So my questions are the following: 1. Should I reopen my claims or file an appeal? 2. How do I go about getting ALL of my C&P claim notes, especially whatever was said from this C&P without my knowledge? 3. Should I even attempt to ask for the much qualified for increase on other areas of my body, that have gotten worse, or fight this
  4. Hey Everyone, I wanted to post here to get some advice. I went to my latest C&P this past Friday May 17th, 2019 for an increase to my original condition of Lumbosacral strain as well as secondary NSAID induced GERD because of taking NSAIDS for years of treating the pain from my back and legs. Here are the issues that I had and am wondering should I submit an additional document to my claim to let the RO know of my concerns before they make a decision or should I wait for decision and then go for higher-level, supplemental, appeal road. Examiner did not use Goniometer to measur
  5. I recently (October 2018) made my first claim and was examined and rated @ 10% for Tinnitus. Immediately afterwards, I received a letter from the VA stating that they had made an appointment for me for back pain that was from a claim in March of 2000. (I left the USAF in January, 2000). This is the result of that C&P exam. I was also sent a letter about foot pain that I had claimed in 2000. I ended up filling out more paperwork to explain condition, and sending in medical records from private doctors. I believe that they combined the foot pain, and the back pain into one claim.
  6. During my military separation physical, I told the doctor that I had a injured left shoulder from weightlifting on the ship out to sea. It was the first and only time I mentioned it because I didn't want to be a burden at the time. That was back in May 2008. Since this time, I have always had pain in that shoulder that would come and go. But, fast forward to 2017 and my left shoulder has been in non-stop pain limiting me from doing many things people take for granted. During 2017 & 2018, I went to a pain doctor on three separate occasions for a steroid injection which helps temporarily and
  7. I have been rated 80% with TDIU since 2013. I recently attended my 5 year re-evaluation for PTSD. My exam results showed up on Myhealthyvet today, but I shouldn't get a decision until June or July according to VA.gov. I just wanted to know what you guys thought my rating "MAY" be based on this C&P. Of course, my PTSD and MDD are firing at max speed right now worrying about it. My concern is the part where the Dr says "Moderately Severe" PTSD and depression. I have heard stories about the raters pulling small words like that out and using them for a reason to reduce benefits.

  9. Newbie! So i had 3 C&P exams on Janurary 18th, back to back. General, audiology, and mental health. Yesterday I went to get copies of each one and my general wasn't available. After a few different phone calls I am being told that the doctor hasn't finished the notes of the exam and it is still being drafted. Mean while my exams for the other 2 have already been recieved. Tell me is this normal? The guy I spoke to was extremely rude and informed me that I was well aware that this process takes months or years, sure maybe the entire process from start to finish but months to typ

  11. Hi everyone, So I thought I would see if I can get an answer on this. So I got out in October 2011 and had a C&P Exam 5 days later where I got denied on a SC Condition. I reopened the case last year in July, denied again because of no new evidence. This year, reopen the case again, no new evidence but given a c&p exam and was rated at 10% on it. Now, should the effective date be from my original C&P Exam where I got denied, or from 2017?
  12. Hi all; Long time reader/lurker during which I have received loads of good info! I thought i would ask a question of my own. I am going through a claim for IBS (3rd time), I am considered a Gulf War Veteran and I am trying to claim it under presumptive condition since it has already been diagnosed by the local VA hospital here in Virginia. Following my C&P exam, the VA wants some documentation about Gulf War Illness which I will provide, but I have noticed I have a mysterious second C&P scheduled at the local VA hospital? So far, I have not received any formal information in
  13. Hi, This afternoon I have my C&P exam for PTSD secondary to MST, with a contracted provider. I found out Friday evening after work. Fed Ex had delivered the paperwork earlier, but I didn't get a chance to see it until I got home from work. To say that I am nervous would be the understatement of the year. I am desperately trying to hold myself together. My digestive system is all out of whack. I did spend an hour on the phone last night with a wonderful person from a non VSO group. She is a Marine and has trauma history, so that made the connection pretty easy. She gave me a lot
  14. Hello. I went for my fibromyalgia C&P exam and just got the results from myhealthvet. It looks like it was several DBQ's including my back now. Can someone explain these results. I only see one error which is my pain is refractory to medicine. They have my pain is constant but then state NO to the refractory to medicine question. But anyways what do you guys think. IT IS LONG. Sorry. Attached & pasted MHV Fibro.docx CONFIDENTIAL Page 4 of 31
  15. Sort of Long I joined the United States Marine Corps Reserve in July of 1986, and received an honorable discharge in July of 1994. For approximately 45 days in early October of 1986 until late November of 1986, I was stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC with the Warehouse Unit (3051) for training (ACDUTRA). Several years after my separation from service in approximately 1993, I really began to experience the effects of consuming the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. My mood changed drastically and I began to have major panic attacks. At one point in 1995 I was even taken by ambu
  16. Hello Fellow Vets, I'll try to make this a quick an easy read. I joined the Navy in July 2008 and served 5 years of continuous duty. By the time I was out I had several issues that were not present at my join date and eventually filed a claim for my benefits. Upon departure from the Navy, I filed a claim and was denied benefits for headaches, depression, a left knee and right knee condition. When I received my decision packet, it stated that these conditions could be granted a rating if found service connection. When I met with the DAV representative, he stated that if I could have
  17. In recently received my C&P exam and here is a summary of the results. What do you believe my raiting would be? This was done using the DSM 5 standards.The examiner found that you do have a diagnosis of PTSD that meets the DSM V criteria. He also opined that your PTSD was at least as likely as not incurred in or caused by the claimed in service stressor event. It was also noted that your primary diagnosis is bi-polar Veterans Diagnosis: Depressed mood Anxiety Suspiciousness Chronic Sleep Impairment mild memory loss, such as forgetting names, directions or
  18. I finally received a hard copy of my recent C&P exam. I had to travel to the actual VAMC in DC to retrieve it even though I submitted a paper request about a month ago. Anyway, here are the results… Please tell me what you think my chances of receiving a favorable rating are. My claim was remanded back to the VARO by the BVA for further development and a C&P exam. Here are the results… ICD code: 309.28 (F43.23) Mental Disorder: Adjustment Disorder with Mixed Anxiety and Depressed Mood Under #3 Occupational and social impairment [X] Occupational and soc
  19. So I'm wondering if anyone else has ever had a C&P exam that they do not have to be at?? I did this past Thursday!!! I found out about it because for the past week the ebenifits site has not been working right for me. I cannot check my status or most information that is of a personal nature. I keep getting this error code. I reported it. Talked to a tech on the phone he took all the necessary information and said they would contact me via email. Well that was over a week ago. But I keep checking to see if they have fixed the problem. But they haven't! Anyway I called again an was ta
  20. Asked this question earlier -- please excuse if it has been answered somewhere in the archives -- my brother recently had his C&P Exam. Where can I get a copy of his Examination findings ? His MyhealteVet online does not have any records whatsoever. Do they come with the VA Rating Decision ?
  21. hi everyone, if anyone has any insight on the results of my C&P exam it would be greatly appreciated. i was sexually assaulted while AD AF, my claim was quick start filed 5 months ago, i had the exams over a month ago and things seemed to be going well, it went to pending decision approval two weeks ago and then all of a sudden dropped back to gathering of evidence and a pending appointment request. my AMVETS lady never answers me and when she does she says she will get back to me... and never does. my PTSD is at an all time high not knowing what all of this means. i also have a few other
  22. Hi, I had an interesting and bewildering C&P exam with a Dr. covering three items of evaluation; lower extremity varicose veins, piriformis syndrome (left hip), and lumbar condition with herniation (for a disc bulging 5 mm to the left at L4-L5). Here is about how it went… Firstly, I had filled out the summarized history questions for each of the three items. The papers I had diligently filled out simply laid on his desk the entire exam though, and he simply asked me questions as he went through his DBQs. I was very well versed in my medical record and could tell him t
  23. So I went to the QTC office for my TWO C&P exams today. First one was at 1300 and it was my MH C&P exam for PTSD/MST and my eating disorder. Was with the doctor for about 1-1/2 hours and we went through everything thorough. Apparently the reason I had this C&P was the fact that the VA originally rated me for Anorexia Nervosa back in 2014 separately from my MH PTSD/MST/Anxiety. Looks like I should be under Bulimia rating because of my binging/purging with laxatives and the abuse of the laxatives. The discussion was good, she did not have me 'totally' relive the disgusting event
  24. My question is in regards to a recently completed C&P exam I had taken for MH. I am quite worried about the statements made by the examiner and a few other sections as well. I have tried to highlight the sections that worried me I am not sure if I had missed anything of importance. Normally I would take this issue up with my VSO but she is out sick. I do not know who else or where else to turn to for information about this. I am most worried about the statements made by the examiner in the final paragraph. I did as I was told by my VSO and others in the VA and are assisting me currently in
