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

Aloha, and welcome aboard, 'drqonxo'... Good luck with your upcoming C&P exam. We have many helpful HADIT members that can help you prevail with your PTSD claim. Do you have copies of your DD214?

Here is a link that will help you get a DD214 copy if you need one.

My most positive thoughts are with you.

    • 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...
