Got A Cnp Exam In 2 Weeks...

Question

Hello all. I have a claim pending here in hawaii for PTSD. i submited it nov09. I served in iraq during oif II. i did everyday route clrearing, raids, presence patrols, 10 min qrf, escourts, everyday infantry stuff. i was in the battel for samarra in the begining of october. i pulled a buddy out of a m2a3 bfv after a mortor rocked up while rolling out on a big mission. our forward operating base was under constant mortor and rocket attack. ive tried to get help from the va, and im getting treatment for a mild tbi from the mortor attack. when i was sent to mh, i was interview by 2 ppl who reccomended me for ferther care. i was then seen by a dr that wasent even from my state she then said there was no evidenc of ptsd although i was suffering. my neurologest suggested that i go back. will the fact that i didnt get a diagnosis for ptsd gonna hurt my claim? im on meds for headachs and anxity. my cnp exam is 4may10.....mahalo....aloha nui

I recently went threw a C&P for PTSD in Hawaii. All went well for me but I had a diagnosis of PTSD when I was active. My claim went threw really fast atleast i think so. Started it in Jan and in April got the results. I would think you have a CAB or CIB? Those things will help. I am new to all this stuff I hope someone with more knowledge will chime in. You need to be going to the VA and telling and showing them you have problems!!!

Good luck with you C&P.

If the RO sent you forms to describe stressors, be sure you fill them out and get them back to the VA. Try to be as detailed as possible, even if it is difficult. If you have to stop and start over, don't throw the old copies out. Be sure to explain the difficulty you had in filling out the forms...

Welcome to Hadit.

Have you also filed a claim for the issue of TBI (DC 8045) ?

If yes, has it been adjudicated and what was the outcome ?

hay all thanks for the reply. yes i do have a cib. there was a problem with some of our orders in iraq, but our whole unit got them i can go through my old CO, whos now a major, assist me with that if theres a problem...i try to go to the va as much as i cani go every month for a check up and bi monthly to see the neruolgest. i dont drive due to 2 dui's, and i gotta ride the bus. and i work.... i will talk with my neurologest when i see him 30april10 about fililng a claim for tbi. maby ill ask the vfw for help with the tbi claim. back in january they sent me a packet that i had to fill out, listing my stressors. i just listed the ones that stood out. i got plenty more if they wanna interview and investigate. they asked the first names of the guys in the bradly crew that got blased 5 meters in from of me. i was able to track down all there names from social networking sites like myspace and facebook. im just nervous that there gonna look at my file and see no dx and dismiss me. i have already seen a adiologist thats was contracted by the va and said "you definatly had tinnitis" so maby i will at least get 10%.....mahalo.....aloha nui

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
