ok, so I went to 1st mental health appointment with psychiatrist yesterday. He also said symptoms of PTSD but not full criteria. Don;t see his notes on HealthVet yet. He also wants to study mt sleep habits and feel like I may have sleep disorder. Gave me sleep diary to do for 2 weeks. Will decide on my next visit in a month if I need to do sleep study. I sent in ROI for QTC exams, I was told it could take up to 30 days to get them and claim maybe already decided by the time I get them.

Oldtimer,

where did you send ROI for your exam to? And did you use a specific template or just a generic FOIA letter? I am needing mine as well and cannot seem to get a straight answer from any of the involved parties (Dr office, QTC, VA, DAV). Each one states I need to ask the other how to get the results. Any help would be appreciated.

I went online and googled the VA ROI form and faxed it to the intake center. It will give you the fax number to send it to. Hope this helps.

UPDATE: This is what the status of my claim changed to as of this morning. 

I submitted SMR, lay statements and VA clinic medical records, also had a C&P exam thru QTC for anixety and PTSD. Now they are wanting this, what gives? Are they trying to help me or give more reason to deny claim.

 

We need specific details of the stressful incident(s) in service that resulted in post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is important that you read the following information and respond to our request within 30 days from the date of this letter. If you do not respond, VA may deny your claim. 

* Complete and return the enclosed questionnaire. If you are not able to provide the exact date of the incident, please indicate the location and approximate time (a 2-month specific date range) of the stressful event(s) in question. 
* Provide reports of private physicians, if any, who have treated you for this condition since discharge. The reports should include clinical findings and diagnosis. 
* If you have been treated for this condition at a VA medical facility, furnish the date(s) and place(s). We will obtain the report(s).

They may not have got your records or just not reading them,?? sounds like they want your dates and places  your stressors occured, if you sent them all this  resend it and hi-lite the parts for your dates and place of your stressors, let them know what VAMC treated you for this  CONDITION  and if you were treated for your streeors let them know the location send those medical records too....you need to send documentation about your stressor's that cause  what your claiming (PTSD) dates /and places they occurred.

Buck is right. They probably will need to have the stressor(s)verified by JSRRC unless there is significant evidence in your military records.

JSRRC ( Joint Services Records Research Center) needs as many details as possible on the stressors.

Have you attempted to get some buddy statements as well?

I found this in one of your past posts:

Thank you both. The exam was for both claims. I do have current diagnosis from Va mental health psychologist of generalized anxiety disorder which also includes depression diagnosis. He has also referred me to see psychiatrists to get correct medicine. Both stressors have to do with near death event while an active duty and the psychologist is the one that really pointed out to me that I keep living in the past and can't get past it and the trigger was the death or my sister(my best friend) and then her husband 2 months later and coping with that because we live right across the street from one another."

You will need proof of the "near death event while on active duty" if this is not documented in your SMRs or personnel file.
