C&p Results Back, Confused

Question

Hello fellow veterans, I am a twenty year Army vet, and served in the first Gulf War. I have been expirencing these problems for years and finally decided to get help for my Anxiety and depression problems. I am currently under VA care for anxiety and depression. I also have severe sleep Apnea, with a CPAP machine from the VA. I visited the VA center in Brooksville, FL and seen a psychratrist about possible PTSD. She gave me a GAF score of 60.

I sent my packet out in April, recieved C&P exam in August 2011 for PTSD.

I just received my C&P results in the mail today two months after examination. The exam was for PTSD and sleep Apnea

Based on the report the doctors does say I have PTSD and listed a ICD Code of 308.1. Under her diagnosis she put

Axis 1: PTSD related to veteran's fear of hostile or terrist activity, GAD, and Major depression, recurrent

Axis 2: None

Axis 3: Insomnia (Medical records)

Axis 4: problems with primary support and problems related to social enviroment

Axis 5. GAF 55

Comments: Veteran has severe anxiety result from past and current relationships failures/problems and current stressors as well as medical problems/pain PTSD sx stated wheile deployed to the Gulf War (1) and have continued without remission, vet was tearful and appeared overwhelmed by current situation.

Under functional impact: Occupational ad social impairment with reduced reiability and productivity

Under Competency: she put Opionion: Veterans PTSD,Anxiety, and depression are as likely as not related to fear of terrorist activity/combat and S/C medical disorders.

Yet, she starts out checking all the boxes for PTSD, and closes with this confusing statement.

My medical records have sleep issues and a refereal to mental health for Gulf War Syndrome in 1998. (Don't ask me where are the results)

My question is do I qualify still for compensation or do I have a fight ahead.

Thanks,

Joker

Looks good - but there should be MUCH more such as a narrative on how your

PTSD effects your daily life - especially in relationship to Occupation and Social

Functioning.

Carlie, there is. I abbreviated alot that was mentioned. How about I scan the C&P exam, blot out the name and social so you can view.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
