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.

    • 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:
