    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?”

I hope they are going to help. As inconvenient as it may be to sleep with a machine, still worse not to be able to sleep.

My Vet Ctr. Counselor says he has requested a sleep study for me from my VA Dr., but no sign yet.

My first response was that it'd be nice to take a day off work just to go and lay around and try to catch up on sleep.

He laughed. Said it's not so restful.

Maybe you or someone with a little time could fill me in.

I have Ambien now from the VA, and take one whenever I have enough hours to devote. They work pretty good - considering I still don't get a full uninterrupted sleep, I guess my expectations are low!

If mine got bumped another 50% I think that'd give me 100% schedular - GOODBYE POST OFFICE! Well, I can dream - daydream anyway.

It took me a long time to use my CPAP Machine that I got from my Medicare Insurance. Mine has heated air and I use a half cup of distilled water for moisture. I have learned that my macjhine keeps my allergies pretty much in check, I wake up with a pleasant taste in mouth and I sleep much better than I can remember. I also don't snore when I use it which Mrs Pete appreciates.

I also am not restless when I sleep with it. I recommend it highly for anyone who has problems sleeping.

It took me awhile to get used to the straps the C&P doctor told me it usually takes up to a year to fully get used to it. I think im doing pretty well so far with it. I definitely recomend it to anyone who has sleep apnea also. Pete is definitely correct!!!

FLHRCI,

Good deal. I had my sleep study last week and next week I go for my results. I guess any medical condition can cause sleep apnea but I was looking around today and found that "cervical spondylosis" commonly does cause sleep apnea. So is that about where they rate you is 50 percent for sleep apnea?

FLHRCI,

I did see that while looking online yesterday. Obviously, I did not book mark it like I was thinking of doing. I will do some research and see what I can find for ya.

I'm hoping I don't have to but I'm sure I will have to wear the CPAP but I will find out on the 15th. How is SSDI with filing for Sleep Apnea?
