    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost 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?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    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?”

    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

Requested C&p Results...



We received my husbands C&P results today from the VA and we are very perplexed as to the examiner's diagnosis.

The GAF was 65, she goes on to state he failed to "endorse sufficient hyperarousal symptoms to meet DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for PTSD. Yet on Criterion D of increased arousal.

Difficulty falling or staying asleep (X)

Irritability or outbursts of anger (X)

Difficulty concentrating (X)

Hypervigilance (X)

May be pre-military, military, or post military.

Does the veteran have a diagnosis of PTSD that conforms to DSM-IV criteria basone on today's evaluation?


Yet he does in fact have a diagnosis of PTSD through VA mental health clinic.

We haven't received out letter from RO as of yet, it is still in the Decision Phase.

It will be very interesting to see how this goes.

Stay tuned for more Looney Tunes.

Thanks for your service,

Are you positive that the VARO has gotten copies of the following ?

"Yet he does in fact have a diagnosis of PTSD through VA mental health clinic."

The VBA decision maker is supposed to factor in ALL the evidence of record and

the above sure needs to be there.

Do you have a rep you can go see?

Yes we have a rep in Indianapolis which is about 1 1/2 hr. drive. I had messaged him several wks. ago (can't get him by phone) and ask him to inquire of the claim. His reply was, "Not sure what the hold up is but, it's your PTSD claim". Oh really!!!

It said in the C&P results that his C-file was on hand, the documentation of his PTSD from VA MH clinic would had to been in there for her to know he did has a diagnosis of PTSD, (I assume)???

We are awaiting a decision from Indy RO. on this claim. On Ebennes it did say they, "need additional time

to review the claim" Not sure if that is a stall tactic of there's, I'm hoping they see the inconsistencies of her report and the VA pysch.

Thanks so much for your help!
