    employment 2.jpeg

    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

C&p Results From Va Doc

Question

I got my latest results from a c&p exam that was conducted on the 16 june but I cant figure out if it is a good c&p or bad or neutral, anyone please help me with his wording, and any idea what a rater would think of the way it is stated.

OPINION: In my medical opinion, sleep apena, headaches, arthromyalgia, and shortness of breath are as likely as not (50/50) related to his period of service.

Rationale for opionion given: SMR reveal some of the symptoms of complex arising in service. Congitive testing by BH will be required to form an opionion on memory loss.

Other comment: The veteran's panalopy of conditions: sleep apena, headaches, fibermyalgia, respiratory problems, and clamed cognitive deficits are consistent the GWS. However, his service aboard ship and pre-symptomatic exposeure to environmental agents are not consistent with the usual precedent conditions for GWS.

I sent this post 09:32 but don't know where it went... so here goes again... with at least as likely as not 50/50 it seems pretty good in your favor...Have you been working all this time? I noticed you are 80% if not able to work have you applied for TDIU? Vo Edu benefits? SSDI? The GWS seems debatable as were you on a ship in the gulf? Did you go on land during the war? Well you may present with GWS and also have other environmental exposure dependent on the ship you were on too. Check out and look up your ship on google and see what the specifics are concerning it too.

Looks good for the S/C opinion standpoint. That's all you need as in "as likely as not."

Halos2,

I quit work in april as my panic attacks became to severe and for my job description its a miracle i havent went over the deep end before now, but april was when i worked last, I did apply for ssdi but was denied, so since i have hired an attorney to help on that part, i also filed a claim for iu i should know hopefully with a month what my answer is on that. I did get off ship when we was in the gulf in saudi arabia and was caught in a sand storm that lasted 3 days, we were also involved in operation resorte hope off the coast of somolaia where civilians were brought on board plus my ship had went through a Self Life Extension Program(SLEP) before we deployed to the gulf so i think i was exposed to contaminates going thru thatbut that will come at a later date.

thanks for the reply i was hopeing others would see it in a good light as i did but the more i looked the more i doubted myself and what was written

thanks wholesale for your comment also :angry:

What are you claiming, are you claiming these conditions as undiagnosed illnesses/medically unexplained chronic multi-symptom illnesses or do you have specific diagnosis like fibromyalgia, migraines, and gastrointestinal disorder. Reason I ask is because VA will not grant your award if you have specific diagnosis. You must claim them as they are diagnosed. I know this sounds crazy but I had two doctor's state I had GWS due to my military job but VA denied my claim because I did not deploy but I had/have ten of the conditions diagnosed so I started filing separate claims and they have been awarded due to the information in my medical records and medical opinion that my conditions are 50/50 related to service

It depends on how the rater is thinking on one hand the doctor gives the opinion of 50/50 related to your period of service but on the other hand he states that your conditions are not consistent to the current and normal explanation of GWS. I hope this makes sense

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
