Question

I haven't seen very many posts from combat soldiers. I submitted the VA PTSD form with two stressors; incident reports depicting the firefights, Bronze Star Valor with narrative description of actions on the objective and the Purple Heart. I have a CIB from previous action. Is this what the VA needs to validate a claim? Any idea of what I should expect from here going forward?

It sounds like your stressor requirement has been met, so now it's just how much your PTSD creates problems in your daily life. Some folks think the more severe the stressor (ie; combat) the higher the rating but that really has nothing to do w/it.

If you have to go to a civilian doctor to get the PTSD DX then do it. Tell the doctor what you are trying to accomplish. I have done this often in the past where the VA refused to make credible ratings. A combat vet who has insomnia sounds like someone who is suffering stress and anxiety. This is a no brainer. Insomnia and hypervigilence go together and that is PTSD along with flashbacks. The VA may be trying to avoid the DX because they know it will cost them.

Although funded by the VA I suggest you go to a VET Center, for an honest diagnosis. For the most part they are honest and favor the vet. jmo

Greetings 'HumbleC'....Did you submit a VA Form 21-4138? You should expect a C&P exam for PTSD and TBI. Then you should expect at least a 90 day wait, if your lucky.

Did you receive a medical disability rating from the military before you got out?

Are you receiving help now?

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
