Tell them everything , don't hold back and be the tough guy. That will only hurt your claim . This is the time to let it all hang out . You may be okay today , but what about last week or 6 months ago when you were all jacked up. Is this for a PTSD c&p ?

i agree with sandman. hopefully, you will get a good examiner who will listen to you and document what you say in the report. too many examiners only write what they wan and not what you tell them. good luck.

Whatever disability your exam is going to be on I suggest you take a look at the forem here on hadit that shows everything that pertains to your disability exam, and it'll show what normally the examiners are looking for during the exam. One thumb of rule is, don't go in and tell the Dr your doing fine if he ask's how are you today. Go in there like its one of the worst days you ever had. Remember they write everything down.

Been through two C&P exams for PTSD, and every time they have ask the same old question the very first time: How are you feeling today? My reply has always been, terrible! If I was feeling fine, I would not be here talking to you. Always tell them you had a wonderful, stable childhood. If, you tell them anything differently, they could use it against you.

Good Luck

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
