Stress and Insomnia exam

Good evening everyone, I've been lurking around this site for a while and haven't been able to find an answer so I figured I would just post it.

When I went to talk to the VA rep on Camp Lejeune I told him I had anxiety insomnia stress and depression. He wrote down only insomnia and stress and said depression and anxiety would fall under stress. 

Now today I had my mental exam with the mental evaluation doctor and he said I had anxiety for sure as well as depression and stress. So I was wondering since on ebenefits it only has stress and insomnia listed under what I claimed, so do I need to claim depression and anxiety separately? Even if the mental evaluation doctor said I had it and wrote it down? Thank you very much for your help

I believe you will be ok, they roll all that together anyway and  they only give one rating for a mental condition  rather its anxiety stress depression, you may request a PTSD evaluation   and that too is a mental condition and only get one rating and they rate the % on how bad your symptoms  are.

Thanks for the reply, I was hoping that would be the case seeing as discussed all those things at once.

The doctor opinioned diagnosis will be all that matters and this is a guess but it might say something along the lines that due to your sleeping disturbances/ insomnia it's cause you depression and anxiety residuals and lump it all together.

Ok, yeah I hope that's how it works because for some reason the VA rep didn't write down anxiety and depression seperate
