    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?”

    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

Are you going to a C/P exam? If so just show the doctor how you are at your worst. don't go jumping up on any tables, and when the doctor ask you to bend, make sure you stop bending if you hurt, and tell him you hurt, or grimace, or say ouch. If he ask you how your are.. tell him your in pain, and how much and what how serious. Don't say ok, or fine or anything like that. Be careful they write down everything.

If you have siatica pain (pain from butt to leg, to feet) tell him. If you have lost strength in knee or feet tell him and don't forget the worse painis 10 (or above).

Best of luck

Not C&P but followup for ongoing honest Ouch stuff, lumbar, feet etc. I heard its important for VA medical records reflect more recent increased conditions of my disabilities. Just want to make sure I clarify the correct terminology this time at VA and will continue follwup with IMO for increased pension request. Step 1 and 2, if you know what I mean; not medical term perfectionist here. Thanks
