Ptsd Eval


clw4514

Question

I've only recently within the last 7-8 months sought counseling with the VA. I was doing individual and just started group last week. the group leader said that i certainly have ptsd due to mst but she wants to eval me. i havent yet filed my scd claim for it bcuz i am still waiting on my records from st. louis. should i go ahead and do the eval with her? will it make the claim easier/quicker? or should i hold off till i file the claim?

thx,

christy

Go for the exam, anytime the va scheduals an exam you need to follow up on it. This becomes part of you part of your medical records and will become a part in your claim if you file one. The va will get your records and probably faster than you will. While at the va go ahead and file your claim, this is a start but we all had to make the frist move. The va don't give you what you you are due unless you ask for it. Don't ever give up. Remember, when one door closes anothe one opens and you have more knowledge. Ues it to you advantage. The people on hadit are a great source of info and will walk you thru the va system. BTW thanks for your service, and welcome home. I hope you have a good day.

Christy,

Welcome to Hadit. By all means go for any and all examinations.

You will need all the medical evidence you can get your hands on when

you file your claim.

I have been there and the journey was a long one for me until I

came to Hadit for help.

We did it and for me it was a grant of benefits 44 years after my discharge.

Always,

Betty

U are so right! when one door closes, another opens. it took 3 doors closing before i found my way to the VA. i happen to meet the right people and now its all falling in place. i hope this momentum continues for me! thanks for the advice!
