Doc Statement In C&p

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




On the notes by the doctor from my PTSD C&P the doc wrote that my symptoms worsened when my son left for the Air Force.

That is not what I said. I told her that since (because) my son had left for the AF, and I only have 1 more kid at home, I can come back to the VA and start getting this stuff (my medical and mental issue) worked on/taken care of.

That statement of my symptoms getting worse is not correct and, I think, will mess with plans to back date to prior claim.

I believe I read on here that something can be done to correct that but I can't find it.

Any suggestions and help, as always, is truly appreciated.

This forum and the people who help and contribute, even if just saying welcome and/or good luck, are awesome!

Someone here recently had success with a faulty C & P by going to their VAMC's patient advocate.

This may not have much, if any, affect on your rating if everything else in the C and P is okay. Focus on what is most important and relevant. Do you think this will harm your rating? In what way?

Remember, you need 3 things for SC compensation:

1. A current diagnosis

2. An in service event or aggravation.

3. A nexus between the two.

Of course the symptoms go into the disability percentages and you should be sure all your relevant symptoms are reported and in your C and P exam.

"Worsening symptoms" may be grounds for an increase. Once you are service connected, you dont have to "re service connect" over and over.

Thanks to each of you for replying. The reason I'm concerned is that I put in a claim in '94 when I was experiencing the same issues that I currently have, with the same severity. I was told then that they couldn't find anything and I got several things denied, a couple of things SC, but all at 0%.

PTSD (...depression and anxiety) is the first thing that I've claimed since I came back to the VA, only because that is the only thing I've received an actual diagnosis for. The gastro issues are still being tested, as is the chronic pain. I believe I will be done with Chronic pain, getting a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia or polymyositis, in the next few weeks, I will claim that then.

Eventually, since what I claimed back then and was denied are all presumptives for Gulf War now, I will attempt to get them back date to '94.

So, her stating "the symptoms worsened" which they did not, puts a hole in the plan. Does any of this make sense?

Again, any input is appreciated...

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
