Good morning CG...

You wrote: "was told to go with PTSD before, didnt work, was thinknig MST w/PTSD. I listed this issue on original claim, shows up clearly in SMRs"

I have a question have you've been diagoised with PTSD?...the reason why I am asking is because if you are already S/C for Major Depression and your symptoms have increased in serverity you can ask for an increase due to the advancement of the desiease and how it has effected your daily living and your ability to maintain substantial employment. You will need to show how MD has increased your doctor can help you by writing in the strongest lanquage (medical terms) on he/r evaluation of your current condition and if it prevents you from working, plus letter of support statements from your loved one's on how your condition has deteriated as far as your quailty of living or functioning in both private and social settings...along with how your Condition prevents you from working...people living with individuals with MD disorders...themselves become effected by the effects of the person who has MD...at this time when your love one's write out letters of support it would not hurt for them to also tell how your disorder has effected there lives examples would be "due to your MD disorder I no longer attend parties because my wife no longer can attend". MD disorder is a diease like any other be it physical or mental...you will have both good and bad days...and dealing with MD is a everyday struggle...and I can only imagin your frustration with the working of the VA. I hope this post helps

CG are you going to file for PTSD secondary to a personal assualt? If so then you would have to file this form. You are already MD @ 60 is this for the same personal assualt? If so then claiming PTSD is a mute point for compensation for a mental rating is a mental rating and you will not receive a rating for both. Just wondering

For now MD major depression rating is 30%, associated VA statement summary mentions the 'assault'. Just wasnt sure if MST w/PTSD should be recognized as a seperate, specific care issue or part of mental health/MD. Senseless life altering event, thats all. cg

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
