  1. Hello, I have C&P exams all in one day in January. Any advice on what to expect? Here's a synopsis on what I'm up against/working with. - PTSD increase is based off several years of VA mental health treatment and a Nexus letter written by my mental health doctor, which named PTSD, Depression, Chronic Pain Syndrome with depression, Panic D/O with Agoraphobia and survivor's guilt as a diagnosis (last 3 are recently added to records). - Knee pain- VA issued me a big knee brace and my primary care (tricare) orthopedics specialist just put me an Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) brace b
  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. I have 4 C&P exams this Friday. All for increases. (Migraine, PTSD/depression/anxiety/chronic pain/agoraphobia, bilateral foot pain and knee pain increase [including VA issued knee brace and civilian issued AFO foot brace]). Should I have my wife ad adult kids who both witness and suffer from my mood swings, depression, anxiety and antisocial like living on a daily basis? They can also talk about my constant leg pain and migraines. I also want my supervisor to do one regarding my migraines that have me leaving work early, alot. But that is a touchy subject, because I don't want m
  4. 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.
  5. Hello, new here, and wondering what you might think of results. I feel i fall into the 70 category, but unsure, especially how it seems marked at the 50%. Only thing I had was depression/ptsd and anger got worse filing for increase. Now the CP exam marked me with OCD, which is new for me. But said it may be worse then my PTSD, or enhances it. Any ides or similar experiences. I dont quite know what or how it will be rates as it has quite a bit of the 70% verbage. Is this DBQ being completed in conjunction with a VA 21-2507, C&P Examination Req
  6. I'm currently rated at 50%for ptsd but with a total of 80% which was given back dec 2010. I filed an NOD right away and just now had a c&p exam on 10/25/2013 and then checked ebennies last night and it had already showed a SOC has been sent. Pretty quick turn around so I'm guessing bad news. Tell me what you think please. 1.Diagnostic summary Has the veteran been diagnosed with PTSD (yes) 2.Current Diagnosis #1: PTSD with depression (X) axis I 3.Axis III -medical diagnosis (to include TBI) Acromioclavicular , sprain Axis IV -unemployed ,social environment , prim
  7. Ok so my PTSD claim was Denied and now I am working on finding some of my brothers that served with me so I can get them to hopefully write letters for me. As it stands right now I have my mother and my brother and the only two friends I have from before and after service that I still keep in contact with writing letters. Can anyone tell me the best way to fourm the letter. As it stands all I can think to tell them is to start with to whom it may concern... Does the VA contact them to confirm the letter or set them up with a deposition hearing or anything like that to put them on record? Anyt
