    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?”

C&p Exam Held Yesterday


Bound4heaven

Question

Greetings to all,

My wife and I took the veteran in question to his C&p exam for Right Median nerve damage.(EMG).

Let me back up a ltlle here. The veteran in question went to his Chiropractor last week,. This guy informed him that his symptoms do not line up with left median nerve damage, in which is currently rated at 20% This veteran informed me he wasn't going to accept a dignosed he was never given so that if it ment he would loose his 20% thats ok with him. He sent this information to the VARO. We went through his entire medical file which included 3 C&P exams given to veteran 6 months ago by Nuroligists that never mentioned "Right median nerve damge" but said that his current left side issues were due to myofacial strain and possible spinal issues and caused him to be feeling numbness and tingling in his right fingers and arm.

He wrote a letter for the VARO and the C&P doctor and told them that he didn't have "Median nerve damge" and that no where in his medical file is it ever mentioned, even the results of his last C&P exams gave other reasons why he is having these symptoms. He walks with a cane and has terrible gait because of his bi-lateral foor issues which he is rated at 100%. It is only mentioned in his award letter that the VARO gave him 20%.

At the C&P exam the results were normal/boarderline. The 2 doctors who gave him the EMG said that it was possible that due to his gait and how he walks and the cane that it could be pinching a nerve causing his forearm and fingers numbness and tingling. He informed me this moring he sent letters to the VARO telling them of this new information and also told me he sent a letter to the doctor who did the exam asking for his written opinion that this could be possible in regards to an impengement on the median nerve even though the test was normal/boarderline.

Does anyone have any advice or input on how the VARO will handle this issue and how this veteran should handle this issue? he is 74 years old and rated at 100% +SMC. Thank you all. God bless.
