    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

Question

The big day that I was waiting for is finally over. The exam lasted around 45 min and it was not what I expected. He didn't ask any of the things that I have read on the internet.

This was an old time doctor and he was a prick. I requested a copy of my exam to be sent to me and he played dumb. He claimed that didn't know how that worked. I wanted to beat the sh-- out of him but I said thank you and I left. I don't think I did very well but time will tell,you never know.

Yep if there is one thing I have learned is that you never know about a C&P till you see it and get a rating.

Oh that was two things

Bill,

If the exam was done at a VAMC just go there in a few days to

Release of Information and request a copy.

The examiner has nothing to do with you getting a copy.

Maybe it went better than you think :)

Bill. The Doc may be correct in that he really didn't know how you got a copy of the exam. To get a copy you need to request it with an FOIA release form. I know that I can go to my Branch Clinic and they have the forms right there. I have had them give me the information right then and there if it is just for one visit. Since I am usually asking for six months worth of visits to keep my C-file up to date, they will mail it to me.
