to me that would be a good thing, if there were still doubts about the PTSD then they would want their doc to review you to resolve any discrepancies I would take this as a positive sign

Wayne we have all been there a lot of lows before we see happiness but if there is a doubt about your PTSD then they HAVE to examine you and with PTSD if you have been diagnosed by the VA SSA usually accepts the records what percentage are you for PTSD if it's SC? There have been rumors for a few months that the VA and SS are supposed to ACCEPT each others disability determinations even the new report from the VDBC on Oct 3 states that one of the biggest problems is the disputes on disability between the 2 agencies and if one finds you disabled the other should accept the ruling and find in your favor also. Maybe they are finally stopping the games they play on vets between the 2 agencies, we can all hope it's about time

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
