    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

John applied for SSD last Nov. for his back, The day before he had surgery ( 6 months later ) he got the news that they excepted him.

we filed claim for his back, and did let them know that he is recieving SSD, they got his records from social security, and after C&P the dr. wrote down at least as likely for his back, shoulder, pn, & diabetes. I thought for sure they would deny for back and that was the one that would be the hardest to prove, but instead the C & P hearing dr. deny sc for hearing which is on discharge papers, this I don't understand.

By the way when John filed for SSD, he had lost his job because he was off more than 12 wks, and at his age they probably thought he can not be retrainable. Nobody wants to hire someone with back problems, and John can not sit, stand, walk, bend, for any length of time. I do know that the Pain clinic that he was sent to said that this has been a problem for a long time, ( which it has) he suffered for years and finally the back said no more. Again, he fell off of two helicopters in Viet Nam while working on them.

Yes- this is great evidence- and I forgot he received SSD----

You are right that often back problems are very difficult to service connect but it sounds like his claim is certainly moving along well and you have very good evidence.

Actually it seems his claim is moving faster than what we usually see here. This is good and I hope you both don't have to wait much longer for a good decision.
