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.
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.
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.
Post 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?”

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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
So my Primary doctor said since they can't help me or have failed along with my service department in evaluation of my TBI on the severity he wants to send me to the George Bush Center on TBI research.
He said he is speaking with Dr. Kelly this week so I think I may finally be properly evaluated and treated for all my injuries invisible as some are and being able to finally figure out my black out problem. I have found a VA doctor who cares about my issues and is trying to get the 1. The Va to pay for it or 2. Have the Bush center do it for free for aid in researching for them. I have yet to see a research project involving PTSD and sTBI with Post traumatic amnesia and isn't disgruntled with his system he is actually one of many in the Wilmington Delaware hospital. So if you have a choice where to be seen and are as close to philly as Delaware pick Wilmington VA. Fingers are crossed said I was a very good candidate for this project. I don't care if it's not a guarantee to be my old self but a step in the right direction.
i am so glad I left Philadelphias area where I was a dime a dozen in Delaware I can walk in at any moment if needed and be seen. I understand it's a smaller area and not a huge city. But if I were Philadelphia I'd be broken down into four sections And have a different VA facility to ensure all are helped for each section I'd break it down North South East West of the city and for the surrounding whichever region they are closer too.

I know what you mean. Our VAMC does not have a chiropractor, so I am considering using the choice program to pay for the one I use outside of the VA. Do you think your VAMC will cover this for you via
