    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 Yesterday For Increase!


jefmil50

Question

Well had my C&P yesterday for an increase. Not sure how it went but I see on e-bennies it went from gathering of evidense to prep for decision. I am rated now at M + K for lou of 3 extremities plus my right hand. That rating was awarded back in 2007.

I submitted for an increase because my condition of Multiple Sclerosis has deteriorated since then. I have been hospitalized 6 times in the last year and now have lou of bladder function. This new lou of bladder function has required me to use a suprapubic catheter so that I can empty my bladder and reduce the chances of uti's.

Just trying to get any thoughts on this matter? I know I am preparing for the next step if I have to appeal this outcome, hopefully not but I did not get good vibes from this examiner. Even the front desk clerk said he can not wait for him to retire. Thanks!

If you have a premium account in Myhealthevet, you can look up the Examiners notes in BLUE BUTTON. If I remember right, there is a 3 day wait for that info unfortunately.

Good Luck on your Increase

Hi Jefmil50, it is a few years late to respond to your post but I was researching LOU---I too have MS, or as my husband says:we haveMS'...he is very supportive.

As the disease goes, mine has gotten worse...just had (and still have not gotten back to where I was before the ER visit and all the steroid pills and the 3 day solu-medrol treatment), I have a new problem---tremors in left hand and even more intense LOU in left hand along with all the other issues.

It is a scary disease.

 

Hang in.
