  1. Hi, another one for you here. Denial of entitlement to an evaluation in excess of 0 percent for migraine headaches, Jan 2020. Reason for denial by De Novo review as follows: "We have reviewed the evidence and found it does not support you experience prostrating attacks that would warrant an evaluation in excess of 0 percent. While your testimony is credible, the probative evidence does not show your reported symptoms cause extreme exhaustion, powerlessness, debilitation or incapacitation with substantial inability to engage in ordinary activities, or result in substantial work impairment."
  2. Hi, I am currently on appeal for increase rating in excess of 50% PTSD (rated as Specified Trauma and Stressor Related Disorder) and the case was remanded by BVA back to the RO. The initial PTSD C&P was done in 2014. The original rating was not rated as PTSD, but Specified Trauma and Stressor Related Disorder. A new exam was requested and completed October of 2020 and I was awarded 100% PTSD. I contested the rating as VA denied a rating of excess of 50% prior to September 2020. The RO stated the following, "The evidence does not support a change in the prior decision. Therefore, entitlemen
  3. Hey all. Hoping you guys can help me out with what to expect. In 2010 while I was active duty I went to medical over what I thought was a potential hernia. They did an ultrasound and felt around but told me they didn't see anything and that if it continued to hurt come back. I got my honorable in January of 2011. A couple months ago, the pain occasionally still persisted so I filed a claim for a hernia/groin condition and they scheduled me within a few weeks. I just went to my appointment and the Dr. asked me if I had the hernia taken care of yet. I told him that I was never diagnose
  4. Hello all, I had my C&P virtually yesterday for my new claim of PTSD. I was just wondering what the average turn around is these days? Last year, I had a decision on increasing my ratings in four days. I'm sure it will not be that fast, but when should I go into and obsessively start hitting refresh? Thanks in advance, Dawn
  5. I was awarded 100% PT for several issues about a year ago. My code sheet (from my FOIA request and confirmed verbally by my VSO, and then by a VA phone rep) indicates that everything rating is 'static' except for my back issue(40%) and radiculopothy for both legs (20% each). Those two items are listed with a re eval scheduled for about 8 mos from now. I am confused how I am P&T but still having to do a Re eval. To make things more confusing I am 100% static for mental health stuff. Even if the reduced my back I would still be 100% for MH stuff alone. Any thoughts?
  6. Well I am at the court pro se lawyers all did see thing my way so I no my case best 25 year of fighting. Well I got the case expidate at the bva an the veteran court.

  7. My sister recently had a C&P exam done and this morning she logged in and it said that notice for request 5 closed, does anyone happen to know what that means. I've googled and looked on several other boards but I can't find anything that speaks of request 5
  8. Good morning received letter from VA I was denied my claim for cervical fusion. First I am at 20 percent Lumbar degenerative disc disease, and 10 percent for each leg Radiculopathy. I was a crew chief on CH46 helicopter with about 2000 hrs of flying and at least 500 hrs on Nvg's I has denied no service connection, even when I supplied case studies from the Army and Navy on neck pain and shoulder pain from wearing NVGs for period of time. Second I prouder two letters from two different doctors that my current problem is due to military life. C@P exam lasted only 15 mins and that person said I
  9. Hello, I got a copy of my C and P of my tinnitus exam, and the doctor listed why he thought I was service connected. Listed my MOS that I had in the Army. Ok good. I read on and then he listed and MOS I never held and stated that since I held this MOS, I should be service connected too. So my question is, will anyone ever notice this incorrect additional MOS listed on my exam and go back and remove my 10% they gave me? Thank you
  10. Can i walk into the VA Regional Office to get a copy of my C&P exam on the spot? . They do not have them at the VAMC because they were done with QTC.
  11. Good afternoon to every one, my question as follows after c@p exam completed how much long will it be to get answer will it take to get up or down? Does it usually take 6 months to get 100 percent temp disability for surgery? I had back surgery back in July and I am still waiting, yes it is service connected, Thanks Ken
  12. Hey all, Bit of an update. I have been SC for PTSD at 30% and tinnitus at 10%, denied for two other conditions and my TBI claim was "deferred". I had my TBI C&P about a month ago and in the process I've recieved two notifications on va.gov that two more exams have been scheduled. Well I called VES today after not hearing from them about any new appointments for two weeks and the rep on the phone told me that there was no new exam requested...that the VA actually just "kicked back" the C&P two times. They said they are "reworking" the exam. Anyone experience this before
  13. I have been waiting for C@P exam for a while, I called the VA and they told me to QTC. When I called QTC about scheduling my exam they told me there is only one physician with in a 100 miles of me, and they have to call them to see what is is open. Of coarse QTC had to leave message to the physician for call back, QTC asked me to call back in a week. Which I did, same thing happen, oh ya week three same thing. I call the VA and asked them if this is normal. one physician in 100 miles and I live in Boston, and the physician must not need the work because of no call backs. Has any one had this
  14. After making a written request for a copy of my C@P exam, usually how long does it take to receive a copy. Thanks Ken
  15. After higher level review, VA is correcting 3 errors. Letter states that VA is developing for a examination to consolidate conflicting information about my mental health condition. I have a C&P Friday. What should I expect in this one?
  16. Hi Everyone I filed a claim for SSD related to my back rating, I filed it on the 12th of August and I was contacted by a company called VES on Friday. They told me that the VA contacted them because they want to expedite my claim. I wanted to know has anyone had this done before and why would they want to expedite the claim, not that I'm complaining because that's a good thing it's just I've never heard of that before.
  17. I had a higher level review, and new C&P yesterday. How long before I know something, since this is a higher level review process?
  18. I had a higher level review, and new C&P yesterday, and went to ebenefits this morning, and disabilities and payment history, and letters unavailable this morning. Is that a good or bad thing or is the site just down
  19. While I wait for an appeal on some other matters I am starting a bilateral sciatica claim secondary to arthritis in the lower back (just got service connected for the back). I have to get some documentation together, but I am wondering what to expect in a c&p for sciatica. It is pretty unpredictable when the worst of it will happen so I’m not sure how the exam will go, or what the doc will look for.
  20. Higher level review letter states that VA returning 3 different mental conditions for correction of a duty to assist error in the prior decision. States Va failed to get an examination(s) and/or medical opinion(s). One of them states VA is developing exam to consolidate conflicting information. I told review I had a bad C&P, and that the person doing exam, had been reported by VSO's . I have new C&P tomorrow. Video C&P. What should I expect?
  21. I am scheduled to be reevaluated for my combined disabilities of Major Depressive Disorder/Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Overall, anxiety is my #1 problem, with depression being #2, in my life but for the past month or so, I have been overwhelmingly depressed. I'm afraid of looking stupid trying to explain how anxiety is ruining my life while presenting as a depressed person. I still have a lot of anxiety right now but depression is my current elephant in my room. Do I have anything to worry about in this respect? I'm currently rated 50% and this is a routine future examination.
  22. I was rated 50% for mental health and placed on the TDRL in 2014. In 2016, I was placed on the PDRL. Fast forward to 2020, the VA is reevaluating me. I heard that the VA shouldn't be doing this because they usually take a PEB's opinion on stability into consideration. Is that true? Should I upload the 2016 PEB decision as evidence in my favor or bring it to my C&P exam? Please advise. Thanks.
  23. I recently received a re-exam for my anxiety disorder that I have a 70% rating for. They sent me a packet explaining they want to lower the rating to 30% because of "improvements made". When i told my treating physician about this, he disagreed that any improvements have been made and agrees to write a statement for me to send in as evidence. I'm just curious how much ground his statement can hold against their examiners and if it is likely that they will reduce my rating or leave it as is. Has anyone else submitted doctors statements and had the VA rule in their favor? Is it common?
  24. Hey all, First off, love this page it has been extremely helpful! Background: currently at 90% / 70-ptsd, 50-migraines, 10-iritis, 10-tinnitus, and I’m in the running for 100 at the moment. Current day: Was content at 90 but after all these years I have finally come out about my MST when I was in the infantry. Still working stuff out on that end as this is still fresh... Anyway, I submitted a claim for sleep apnea because of the MST. I submitted the following: picture of CPAP machine I use in my house, nexus statement from issuing doctor, Nexus statement from other doctor
  25. I'm curious as to what, if any responsibility the VA may have for followup on conditions found during C&P that were not specifically on the original claim. Example: Claim for low back syndrome is approved at 20%, during the C&P exam, examiner notes radiculopathy down legs. Does the VA have any requirement to help "fully develop" the claim knowing that the radiculopathy is being caused by the original claimed condition. Thanks in advance, Randy
