everything I do I try to help the next person or make it easier in claims process or

getting the proper treatment for pain. I have the negative opinion to offer just to make you

get what's needed to get your claim approve. I only tell what's been told to me about this

new pain management treatment. They are just beginning to start this .I hope it could help you the Vets

From what I was told they offer Mental, physical therapy, relaxation therapy that might help narcotic

It's good to see the VA trying new things. For ages, they were dead set against chiropractic or accupuncture treatment. I guess with the VA becoming anal retentive about opiates or advanced pain management, they had no choice but to try to embrace new age solutions.

Knowing this program is out there, I am going to contact my PCP and see if there is one at my VAMC. The last time I was referred to pain management, they literally ignored me, cancelled my appointment, and left me sitting in the waiting room until the clinic closed. I hope I get results this time.

Vync, from what I been told they have everything social workers, mental , chaplain , pharmacy

a complete team of doctors mental, physical, sleep doctors, that is suppose to help with chronic pain

and dealing with it to have a better quality of life. It just this one in Atlanta is in the C&P compensation clinic on FT MCPEARSON

Breathe 2 relax and CBT i coach are smart phone apps that VA has made to help with sleep disturbance.

After talking to a few in the Jan class they seem to like it and it seem to be helping with chronic pain and enjoying life better

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
