this is crazy help


well talk about being confused ?

i just had a nice visit with my primary care physican,i have had her for about a year.

long story short,,,

i ask why my recent x-ray report stated my back condition did not show any amonalys 

((  defects )) noted. 

she said its because you dont have any >>>> hu ,, i said but i have a congenital vertebrae

she said no you dont,and the records (x-rays ) proves it . well i told her the va said i did

and denied my back claim due to the law , she said i dont know any thing about va law i;am 

a doctor and you dont have a defect in you vertebrae,

so now what ? i cant file a cue on a misdiagnosis,which was first diagnosied in 1984.

and guess what '''' her nurse got on the computer and down loaded a dbq and she had me do some test , and said good by for now. here nurse said she would call me when the doctor finished the paper work, so i left.

what do yall think ?? is it to early to start dreaming again.          


thanks all

How about posting redacted copies of your C & P DBQ.

You need to go to the VMC Radiology Dept for for the Radiologist Expert opinion regarding any xrays of your spine. Radiology Notes don't show up on your MHV or for that matter in your VMC Med File, you have to get them from the Radiology Dept. May have changed, but that is how it was back in 15.

Most VA PCP and Specialist Drs, shy away from discussing anything regarding SC Claims. I think their afraid of damaging their patient Dr relationship, very understandable, considering the volatility of some Vets.

Doesn't sound like your PCP is a good choice for a supportive DBQ.

As an update, I had my meeting with the Voc Rehab folks yesterday, and as you predicted, they basically said there is nothing they can do for me.

Should have my "rejection" letter in a few days, will file it with my Fully Developed claim, as well as TDIU, and see how it goes.

Thanks for your advice!

Allan, get educated on the VA IL (Independent Living) Program. It's run out of the VA VR Dept, chances are, your VR Councilor is also an IL program Councilor.

Was any mention of the IL program and your eligibility for it, made by your VR Councilor?

Give AskNod's posts, regarding the IL program, a couple of good reads, very informative.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
