Va Training Manuals


My claim for Raynauds disease secondary to discord Lupus erythematosus was turned down by the VA. The C&P doctor stated that in my opionion is that it is not secondary to DLE. Raynauds phenomenon may be associated with Lupus but it is not caused by it. IN the VA training manual it states,( In Raynaulds disease there is no underlying cause. This is the milder form, And it usually affects both hands and feet. In raynauds Phenomenon. Altjough the signs and symptoms are the same an underlying cause is known. one of the causes include LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS). I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS. ( ANY SUGESTIONS).

HELLO, CARLIE AND ALL THE WONDERFUL VETS OUT THERE, As far as the reason for denial of my claim for RAYNAUD'S PHENOMENON I had a bad C&P examiner, There were no test done, the va examiner just looked at my records ask me a few questions, And did not put what I said on paper during the exam, Some of the questions that was ask were. Are there effects of the problem on the following daily activities? NO (i said yes) Is exercise or exertion precluded by the condiction? NO, (I said yes) ECT ECT ECT BS. ALSO the examiner stated, IN MY OPINION IS THAT IT IS NOT SECONDARY TO HIS DLE. RAYNAUD'S PHENOMENON MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH LUPUS BUT IS NOT CAUSED BY IT. MY NEW EVEIDENCE OF SUPPORT, Will be what I pull off the internate, Like the va training letters, and the research done by National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, ECT ECT ECT. (THANKS FOR THE HELP EVERONE). ALSO a copy of a letter that my VA doctor gave me in support of my claim, That states Discord Lupus is but one category of skin lessions that can occur in patient with lupus. There is some overlap. Patients with Discord lupus have a predominance of symptoms that do not involve internal organs. Discord Lupus can be a slowly progressive diease with joint sysptoms such as pain, stiffness and swelling. Raynaud's phenomenon is also in patients with lupus. IT IS AS LIKELY AS NOT THAT RAYNAULD'S PHENOMENON AND HIS JOINT PAIN TENDERNESS ECT ECT ECT ARE DUE TO HIS SERVICE CONNECTED CONDICTION OF DISCORD LUPUS. HIS DISABILITY SCORES OF 1.0/10-3.67/10 ARE RELATED TO HIS ARTHRITIS. (THE SCORES I DONT NO WHAT THEY MEAN). TITLE (MD MS RHEUMATOLOGY SECTION). I submited this to my VA rep today, He said that a reconsideration will be the next move and also we will watch for the NOD date, He also stated that the doctor did a DAMM GOOD JOB. ( I HOPE THAT THIS NIGHTMARE WILL SOON BE OVER). PS I HOPE THIS HELPS SOME OTHER VETERAN.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
