Question

Hello all, Im new to this forum but have been reading some post and getting great information. Thank you to everyone who is actively spreading information.

My question which i cant seem to get an answer to from my peblo, or va case manager. In my medical records it clearly states that i sustained two concussions while i was deployed...upon return from deployment i was seen by tbi and diagnosed with two tbi. the other day i went to qtc to see some docs about tbi/ptsd. the doc told me that he beleives ive recovered from my tbi, and because of that he was not going to put it in his notes to the va for a claim...can this happen? i am still currently seeing a doc at tbi, and am being told im still suffering from memory problems, and that my sleep problems and migraines are from the tbi, but this guy at qtc says otherwise...what are my options here???

thanks again for your time.

"the other day i went to qtc to see some docs about tbi/ptsd."

Do you this was a C &P exam for TBI?

Have they scheduled you for a PTSD C & P yet? (these are 2 distinctly separate disabilities)

Have you requested a copy of the actual results of the exams?

"i am still currently seeing a doc at tbi, and am being told im still suffering from memory problems, and that my sleep problems and migraines are from the tbi, but this guy at qtc says otherwise...what are my options here???"

Are all of these conditions stated in your TBI claim as residuals of TBI?

Have you also formally claimed PTSD?

Are they (these conditions as to the migraines etc)documented in your VA med recs or is this doctor a private doctor?

If he/she is a private doctor would they be willing to prepare an IMO if you need one?

Did the QTC doctor suggest some of these conditions were due to your PTSD?

Do you have a diagnosis of PTSD from a VA mental health care provider?

"va case manager" ? I dont understand what you mean there.

Have you given your POA to any rep from any major vet org to help with your claim?

What type of "doctor" was the QTC doctor?

GRADUATE ! Nov 2nd 2007 American Military University !

When thousands of Americans faced annihilation in the 1800s Chief

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

Mojo, if all possible you should ask to be seen by another doc. I also had a few concussions while deployed (IED Blast) ans suffer from all the things you suffer from. I have been going back and forth trying to fix these problems, however I have come up short on just about everything. I think the memory problems are the worst. You should definlty try and claim for PTSD and TBI...If you had medical records stating what happened then you should be fine, I can't say for sure because I am still waiting for my claim but it can't hurt to try.

Yes i did C&P and ptsd, all conditions im claiming are documented by the army, i have the actual med documents from the army i requested them when i first started my meb. im not claiming anything that isnt something legit. i know a lot of ppl try and milk the system and claim a "stubbed toe" or something of the sort. im not. all im claiming are things that actually affect my life. everything has been diagnosed by army and va, but qtc doc(hes a neurophyscologist) denied tbi claim, even though in his own words he said he sees in my records where ive been diagnosed with (2)tbi. he said my ptsd conditions were completly different from tbi in his opinion. since im still active duty, i have a peblo(army side), and va case manager. nothing is from private doc, all is from army/va, ptsd, migraines, memory loss, insomnia...etc. i did ask to see another doc, but was told he was the only neuro doc at qtc, we actually got into a heated argument over it. i was just under the impression that any injury documented in my med records that has an impact on my daily life would entitle me to claim it for compensation.
