Welcome to Hadit.com.

It is actually quite normal to have more than 1 C&P scheduled on the same day.

Below are some links you might want to research.

C&P's Do's and Dont's :

38 CFR - Part 4 - Schedule for Rating Disability's :

Example - 38 CFR - Schedule for Rating Disability's

Tinnitus :

6260 Tinnitus, recurrent........................................ 10 Note (1): A separate evaluation for tinnitus may be combined with an evaluation under diagnostic codes 6100, 6200, 6204, or other diagnostic code, except when tinnitus supports an evaluation under one of those diagnostic codes. Note (2): Assign only a single evaluation for recurrent tinnitus, whether the sound is perceived in one ear, both ears, or in the head. Note (3): Do not evaluate objective tinnitus (in which the sound is audible to other people and has a definable cause that may or may not be pathologic) under this diagnostic code, but evaluate it as part of any underlying condition causing it.

I'm going to tell you what the examiner is going to be looking for as far as your PTSD exam is concerned.

1. You must have been somewhere where you would have, or could have been exposed to a stressful event.

2. This stressful event must have been because you were frightened or terrified of being injured or killed due to enemy or terrorist activity.

3. You must get these feelings and facts across to your examiner, for they are THE ONLY ONES now qualified to make the decision about whether or not you do, indeed, have the VA's version of PTSD.

If you, in fact, are diagnosed as having PTSD due to your service, then you may wish to make your claim, including your C&P medical notes indicating your PTSD diagnosis, on a VA form #21-526EZ "Fully Developed Claim Form".

Then, if you also have, say for example, a DD214 showing a CAR/CAB or an MOS in one of the "combat arms", or an actual notation on your DD214 of "combat", or, for example, a Bronze/Silver star, or commendation medals, etc., you want to make darn sure and send them copies of these things.

DO NOT EVER "ASSUME" THAT THE VA HAS OR WILL GET ANY OF THESE THINGS, up to and including your SMR's (SERVICE MEDICAL RECORDS), recent copies of VA medical treatment or progress notes, Service Medical Treatment Records (yes, there is a difference in these records and your SMR's). And, of course, any records that you might have concerning PRIVATE MEDICAL TREATMENT concerning your disability(s). BUT, be VEDDY, VEDDY CAREFUL that any private medical records do NOT lead the VA down the path allowing them to DENY what you might be claiming as opposed to some other treatments that you may have been receiving, not connected to your hopefully service-connected claims.

You can, if you wish, run any of the above by some of the more illustrious and more knowledgable veterans here on the hadit board, BEFORE sending the items in to the local VA Regional Office.

just sayin'..................

I have been seen by a private Psy doctor and my Combat Expsure Scale

have also a Bi Polar Disorder secondary to my PTSD.

His GAF score was 39, 2010.... I have been have been attending 2 PTSD

classes a Medic PTSD class and a regular PTSD class twice a week.

I'm taking mood med's 3 time a day for depression, mood and BI Polar disorder.

No hearing in right ear at all & tinnitus right side only

I have the 3 C&P exams a week from Friday so I will try and prepare myself.

I have read its not good to look at the examier is this true.

Be nervous and dont give any info unless asked for it.

There should be a forum just for how to be in a C&P exam....

I havent given my self letter to the VA yet I was thinking about giving it

so the C&P doctor can read it & bring along all my medical info and

military info also.

I wont have any problems with stating my issues, SSDI awarded,

DDD an and other issues, Depression, and anxiety and anger problems

PTSD. being alone, not keeping a job more then 3 year all my life

missing 10 year out of my life no work...being homeless..

i guess i just have to let my worse day show and see all. is there any

test or exam they ask you to take ?

just trying to cope the best i can

    • 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...
