Question

I forgot to tell the doctor some of my side effects while I was having my exam last week. IS there a form or addendum I can send in to be considered with the exam.

I was a bit rattled when I went in as well as the fact that I didn't have my side effects written down to present.

Considering one of my side effects is short term memory loss is one of the main one's, you would think I would have made a list to take with me.

Thanks! Juan

Juan,

You can add that to your records; I'd use the form 21-4138.

But- I've been told by a VARO that submitting additional evidence starts the claim clock over, so others may have better advice on how to proceed.

I've sent in a bunch of stuff after my C&P. Not sure if the clock starts over or not, but I'm going to see my VSO tomorrow so I'll ask him. I don't think that it does as long as your claim is still in the development phase.

You can add information at anytime. As long as the information do not constitute a new claim there is no reason for your claim to be delayed.

I was told the other day from a friend who used to work at the DAV doing claims. He would have done ours if he was still there.

He said that whenever you add new information always use form 21-4138.

The main thing that you have to remember is:

AMENDMENT AMENDMENT AMENDMENT

If this is not on the form, it will basically sent it back into the pile. If you have THIS IS AN AMENDMENT on it- it will not slow it down.

Any input on this or has anyone heard this?

Carlie, Thanks. You hear all sorts of things and you sometimes do not know which ones are correct. I am writing this for my hisband and I hope that this is okay with you. Since starting the PTSD individual therapy, you really do not want to mention the word "VA" to him. He is having a very difficult time with all of his Vietnam deamons. We have been married for 24 years and he has kept all the stuff in the closet.

I just try and keep him calm and have faith.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
