Parkinson's &c&p Exam


blackbird

Question

I'm currently waiting on remand ordered C&P exam to hopefully establish service connection for injury sustained in 1995 while in the USAF. My initial claim was filed in 2004. In 2007 I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. The only symptom I have is tremor, which at this point is controlled effectively with meds. My question; if an examiner can't look at me and see that I have this disease, am I under any obligation to tell them during the upcoming exam? I can't help but wonder how this knowledge could be used against my case or ratings. I haven't read anything about this on Hadit, maybe someone else has. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No, they are not examining you for the Parkinson's and they are not providing

medical service's or treatment to you for the Parkinson's.

This C&P should only deal with whatever issues your claim is for.

Anyway they can use it against you - they will.
