    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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 And P Exam Last Friday



I had a combination of a GW exam and C&P for my Scars, Sinus and intestinal conditions. The GW was the brief exam. Told the provider all the immunizations that I took, burning oil fields exposed to and nightmares and fatigue. at this point I'm not sure what to expect from the GW exam

One item i want to point out is the Intestinal condition exam. she looked at the several Gastroenteritis treatments during and after service( to included a DX of Hemorroids during and after service). The provider made a comment that i "should receive disabiltity for my IBS" and it looks like the provider documented a dx of IBS. I also i noticed that in 2012 i was dx with Ulceration of the Terminal Ileum, which the provider also mentioned .

In the remarks the provider stated that " Symptoms today are consistant with dx of IBS. I have encouraged veteran to discuss with his PCP

IBS would be considered a medically unexplained chronic multisymtom illness of unknown or partially known etiology related to service in the gulf

the provider also mentioned the dx with Ulceration of the Terminal Ileum that "at least as likely that not as a result of NSAIDS taken for service connected back pain. I do not think that this condition is contributing to current symptoms. He has not had a repeat colonoscopy"

aside for getting better, does this dx of IBS lead to a rating for IBS? what about the dx of Ulceration of the Terminal Ileum that "at least as likely that not as a result of NSAIDS taken for service connected back pain.

I went thru a GWE last wed for joint pains and memory loss that i have been cliaming since 1995. Finally got C&P for these and was denied on the joint pains since i had not been seeking treatment for such but was granted 50% chronic depressoin with memory loss on that one. Apparently i had seen docs while i was in the army for depression but before and after the gulf war. The c&p for joint pains was for neck and hip and elbows all denied.
