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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
