    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 For Hearing


JohnM

Question

John had his C&P for hearing yesterday,

Said he was border line for hearing aid, but not as yet but if he gets a rating she could give him an amphilier for television.

What bothers me and maybe someone could help me understand: When we filed for hearing loss we also filed for Menier's because of his tinninus, dizziness, and vertigo, but they did not examine him for this, we had sent in Dr.'s statements on all of this and I know that they read it all, because of making statements from the reports.What bothers me is because they never checked for vertigo and our audiologist specialist that we went to ( outside of VA) did all the checking. Will they ignore the claim for menier's? It is on service records for his hearing loss, so that is not going to be a problem for him on that claim.

He also had his C&P for eye exam because of his catracts but before they scheduled these appointments he had catract surgery on both eyes,it was suggested to have it done becuase of his dizziness and possibly falling. Anyways The Dr. was very nice, checked his sugar count that he had done last Friday and with medicine and diet he is at 6.1 but because of his recent surgery on his eyes he could not tell much. Will they still give John a rating for this claim even thou he had the surgery?

We also went down and signed a release form for him to get the records, once they are recorded.

It would be beter if you wait until you get the report from the C@P and react accordingly. Some examiners may surprise you. The report should be avaible in a matter of days. You should consider an IMO from another doctor. If you need to find one, If you used a SSA attorney, call the office and ask them who they use for SSA claims. You can contact them and they most likely will look at the records and make a opinion based ont he exam and records. Copy the regulations for Independant Medical opinions and make sure the IMO doc understands how to record the opinion.
