Thats bad news. You may want to get an Independant medical opinion outside the VA.

HLD is often called Hyperlipidema and the HTN is hypertansion.

Hypertension is rateable if it was evident in service or within the fiorst post service year.

It doesnt have to be diagnosed, just the majority of the readings must be high.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.

Did they mention anything about Major Depression? Any other possible problems....do you have a rating at all yet?

Hello all,

Name here is William and I found this forum the other day and have already found a great amount of useful info. I placed an initial claim for compensation back in August of 2010. I saw the link today on how one can get a copy of their C&P Exam Results and by the looks of things thus far I would guess that getting visibly ticked off and having words with your QTC Examiner for PTSD was not a good idea.

I am truly amazed at the amount of inaccuracies in the report and, well just to be honest, lies. I thought these people were professionals and could understand that uncontroled outbursts of anger and such were actually things that we can't help when we get aggravated. So when I originally finished the C&P Exam I was advised on another forum that you probably did not hurt yourself..... Yes I did.

After the first Gulf War I did excellent for 6 month or a year. I mean Honor Graduate in schools, 299 out of possible 300 on the E-5 Promotion Board, etc... but after that I started getting depressed, drinking, getting into fights and trouble in the service and was eventually allowed to just go home Honorably. I tried to get my life back together and got my drinking under control for the most part. All this was explained in my claims and in person to the examiner but in the end she listed:

Axis I: Alcohol Abuse

Axis II: Diagnosis Deferred

Axis III: HLD; HTN (What ever that is?)

Axis IV: Unemployed: Financial Stress

Axis V: GAF Score 72

:The diagnosis of PTSD was not made.

So advise to all. Make sure and keep your anger issues under control when going in to a QTC Exam for PTSD.

Well I have been seeing the psychiatrist at the local VA Clinic since I first filed and he has been treating me with medication and such for Anxiety for sure and I don't know what else. They only give me 30 minutes with the guy every 6 to 8 weeks.

I think what aggravates me the most about what she put on that report was that is was Alcohol Abuse. She said that since my Mom was an alcoholic then I was. I have only ever had 3 to 4 episodes of 'Binge Drinking" in the past 15 or more years and they ended up in me in jail for domestic violence. She said I was still drinking in the report. I specifically told her that it had been more than a year I know since I had even had a craving for a beer or drank any alcohol at all. I'm not in AA or anything. I just didn't feel like having a beer.

She states in one area of the report on the problems with family, domestic violence, and friend and family alienation ....I told her I haven't spoken to my Brother or Sister in over 10 years ..... However she summarizes at the end :

"Currently he is able to maintain effective family role functioning.

I told her I have Prostate Cancer .... She summarizes with : "Currently he has no difficulty with physical health."

She and I had words, as I previously stated, and I got so upset that I could not look at her anymore and simply turned away and answered either YES or NO..... In the report she stated: "Behavior is appropriate. Maintains good eye contact during the exam. Affect and Mood are normal. Communication is within normal limits ..ect....."

I mean no mention of any outburst....nothing.

I am just so upset because there is simply nothing I can do about it directly I think at this time. Because of her unprofessional and unethical ways she probably cost me years on a legitimate claim.... I just wonder if the review people will catch this fraudulent woman based on other supporting evidence?

Btother, you have a real winner in this DOC. I would ask for another one.

Is she treating you or was it a C and P exam?
