    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?”

I can only tell you what some of it means.

Inspection : Hypermobility Lumbar Area = the area of the spine that was looked at.

Gluts 3/5, LA 4/5 = this is the stength of the muscles in your rear end. 3/5 means a stength of 3 out of 5 with 5 being normal. Same with 4/5 with the actual stength being evaluated at 4 out of a possible 5. Generally, between 3-5 is considered adaquate where as 0 and 1 are non existant or no strength.

Side Inc pain Left and right with greater range Right, Forward most pain bending = the ROM of bending to the side and most of the pain experienced is when you bend forward.

Stance: Single Leg Stance unable to do on Left due to pain = standing on the left side is not possbile because of the pain.

Heel Toe;Intact = means you can walk on your heelsand toes. This test is normally done to see if you have "drop foot."

Range of Motion: LE wf1 and Strenght LE WFL = Generally WNL means "within normal limits," so obvisiouly there is something not normal with your left side rang of motion.

Hope this helps!
