Question

Hi all, I have the following contentions:

Ptsd

Sleep apnea w/clap

Eczema secondary ptsd

dmii/ secondary ptsd

Sinusitis

Rhinisitis

Flat feet

Mastectomy (male), commonly called gynocamastia with scarring

Tenitus

Hearing loss

I finally have 2 C and P exams this week, tomorrow for hearing and Thursday for pulmonary and scars. I have nasal surgery prior to my cp exam (2 days before) for polyps. My polyps will be removed and my septum corrected. The examiner won't see polyps because they will be removed. The va has proof on cat scan.

I have no exam for PTSD, sleep apnea and flat feet. Does this mean that they are going to deny these and try to get enough ammo at c and p to deny the rest?

I have done everything by the books. spent over $1500 on IMO s from several doctors linking with nexus and had all Dbq's filled out. I was told if you have Dbq's, no C and p to save time. This anxiety is driving me nuts.

The VA does not always schedule all C & Ps at the same time. You could be scheduled for more C & Ps on a later date. Also, submitting DBQs does not necessarily mean there will no C & Ps. Sometimes they still order C & Ps and sometimes they don't. Sometimes they may order C & Ps for one condition and they may let the DBQ suffice for another. You never know.

The anxiety is normal. Think positive. If you submitted good evidence for each of your conditions showing diagnosis and a nexus to your military service, you should be fine.

Good luck to you and thank you for your service.

If they do not use your DBQs in the actual decisions and you have proof that you sent them to the VA, they have committed a CUE.

But that rarely happens

georgiapapa is right on the mark.

I agree with Georgia bud, as I myself have had multiple C&Ps this past week at 2 different VAs, and a few more to go in a few weeks from now, and I just found out about those yesterday. I myself have had over 30 C&Ps in the last 2 years, even though I submitted over 10 DBQs. I just had a C&P this past week because the VA claimed that my DBQ for Migraines/TBI was lost the last 2 FDC claims, yeah right. Submitting DBQs does not guarantee no C&P exams, in fact I have had exams for just about every DBQ that I ever submitted. VA likes to use what I believe will most likely work in their favor. What is the point of us Vets doing all the leg work, spending money on IMOs, begging VA Docs to fill out DBQs, when in the end the VA along with the Rater will use whatever evidence they want. Good luck, God Bless and keep us posted bud.

I would believe that when there is equitable evidence both for and against the claim, they are supposed to rule in the veterans favor.

AR,

You are so right, only if the VA Claims world worked like your great words sound.

  • 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.
    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
