    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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

C&p Results From Claim Re-Opened By The Va


Papa

Question

This is the first time in a long time that I have tried to attach anything, so please excuse my brain at 2:00AM.

I would appreciate it if you all will exam this C&P for me, and tell me what you think. The ROM gets me confused, and so does the flexion scale. Is there a slight chance that I could get rated on this? I believe the first time that I put in a claim for this was 1973 in Indiana, but can not locate the paperwork. The earliest that I can find is from an appeal decision on Aug 7, 1975. This decision basically said "impression of Back Sprain" , now there is nothing in my military medical files that says "Sprain". I did not no you could "Sprain" your Back. Through the years I put in claims and got turned down, but out of the clear blue skies, the VA informs me that they now see that I did get injured, and they want to see what my current condition is. BTW, I never received a C&P back in the 1970s. The VSO that I was using was the American Legion, they were useless. Appreciate any feedback.

Papa, don' do this alone. I think I see something here that may be huge,

You need to discuss this with someone at Bergmann and Moore.

Be prepared to send the evidence to them and let them tell yuou what they think.

i went through this with the v.a explaining i had been seen numerous times for hay fever in service and after service. Until i got educated and was told by a DAV officer that there is no hay fever it is either Rhinitis or sinusitis or both and you must identify it as such. then i got the ball rolling. shame on me.

Thank you. I already have a Law Firm to help me. Would you have even a guess what this would be rated? BTW, I like the word Huge, and I will not do this alone.
