  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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 Results Ankylosing Spondylitis

Question

Hi all. Finally went to the regional office today and got my results to share for some good old feed back. of course in my opinion another shitty exam but starting to get use to them now and I will be an appeals expert one of these days. Sorry I had to attach the results but I got them on paper and I had to scan them as a pdf file because I can not use windows 10 worth a shit. The files open up in the Microsoft edge thing and it will not let me copy and paste them or give me the option to save as a word document. Anyways as usual it says onw thing then another and the doctor says its not service connected in his opinion but he was googling the disease because he did not know what it is. also he only wanted to look at my back only but the disease is complicated and has been caught early enough I do not have much x-ray evidence and it effects my joints more than my back and neck. I look forward to some feedback and computer help if someone knows how I can copy and paste the results in the body of this message. Appreciate you all and thanks again!

Update.( Need Help), Just checked e-benefits and status has changed to pending decision approval for 7/12-7/14 up from estimated sept date. Here is the problem I have.. I go to the rheumatologist on 7/13 and I am going to stat my Enbrel or Humeria treatment and  I was going to get a Nexxus letter and help on this claim. Is there any way to get this stalled like trying to talk to who has my claim file and talk to them??? As you know it takes 3 days to get access to medical record notes on myhealthvet and I want to get this medical evidence submitted for this claim because I do note want to go through appeal # 3. I just finally got the paperwork on my first appeal and have 60 days to respond so a trip to the VSO is planned for this week. I just have a bad feeling since a 2 month time period just jumped on this claim and as you see the idiot C&P doc did not give me a good exam so I am expecting the worse and a denial decision that  would like to avoid. Plus the exam they just looked at the AS and I have other issues on this claim such as: Disabilities Claimed: ankylosing spondylitis (New), inflammatory arthritis secondary to ankylosing spondylitis (Secondary), BL HEARING LOSS (ACOUSTIC TRAUMA) (New), DJD LUMBAR SPINE (New), DJD CERVICAL SPINE (New). in which I have no had an exam for these other issues Hope someone sees this since I posted under my original topic cause I could use some advise. Thank you all again.

Did your status change on a Saturday or did you not check your status on Friday? The VA working on Saturdays to clear up the backlog would certainly be encouraging.

Funny you ask, yesterday when I checked the estimated completion date was 7-14 to 7-18 and when I checked just before my post on here I noticed it had now changed to 7-12 to 7-14. the status changed from preparation for decision yesterday and now today it is showing preparing for notification. So you might be right and they are working Saturdays because this has changed since I looked at it yesterday, looks like appeal # 3. On my first appeal I filed it in January and just Thursday I got the statement of case and VA form 9 to fill out so my appeal will move forward, so hope that means even the appeals process is improving.

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, mine seems to never change. I wouldn't mind a sticky note saying " Don't fret Jim, I opened your file today. Hang in there."

Oh man have I been in that situation before. This is the first time ever I actually want them to slow down with my claim. The last two I wanted them to hurry up and I can not believe I want the opposite. A doctor at the VA told me yesterday on average it takes 2 appeals to get your ratings right and it looks like I am in track for 3. Hang in there Jim!!

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
