Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery”instead of ‘I have a question.
Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
Post straightforward questions and then post background information.
Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?

Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons …Continue reading
Hello everyone, just wanted to share something I learn about Dr Bash today i got a call from him about I need an medical
opinion to help establish an early effective date of IU and that he can help with this for a lot less than the what the attorney
is charging if we win about 45 grand different. He even said he & his assistant would represent me at hearing & BVA if necessary no
extra charge. He is really a nice guy my first time speaking with him took about an hour. He says I don't need a lawyer he will help me

Cooter is right- It depends n the fee agreement. As to Dr. Bash- I am very well satisfied with 2 IMOs he did for me years ago. I sent him a brief email in 2005 as to what I wanted and mentio
How much does an IMO usually run? Not trying to be nosey. Its just my husband is on SSDI and there isnt alot rolling in with 3 teenagers....
