    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.
    • 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?”

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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

Va Using "powerful Scans" To Track Changes In Vets With Ptsd, Brain Injuries.

VA Using "Powerful Scans" To Track Changes In Vets With PTSD, Brain Injuries.

The AP (11/10, Neergaard) reports, "Powerful scans are letting doctors watch just how the brain changes in veterans" with PTSD and "concussion-like brain injuries - signature damage of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. It's work that one day may allow far easier diagnosis for patients - civilian or military - who today struggle to get help for these largely invisible disorders. For now," however, such work "brings a powerful message: Problems too often shrugged off as 'just in your head' in fact do have physical signs, now that scientists are learning where and how to look for them. 'There's something different in your brain,' explains Dr. Jasmeet Pannu Hayes of Boston University, who is helping to lead

that research at the Veterans Affairs' National Center for PTSD. 'Just putting a real physical marker there, saying that this is a real thing,' encourages more people to seek care."

This is important. I know that when I was first hurt, I felt like everyone was thinking I was faking etc. When the MRI, and myleogram showed just how much damaged had occured and then the EMG backed up everything, well I felt a huge sense of relief. I wasn't crazy (well my wife says I still am but your only paranoid if there really isnt anyone watching you).

This should be posted in every paper and handed the EVERY vet who could have PTSD. Its real, its there, and heres the PROOF. They should shove this down every Army commanders throat, or at least make them eat the article. I have personally seen so many try to even deny a soldier was suffering.

Thank you allan.
