    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. 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.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

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

    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

Question

Last week I posted the following:

They sent me 5 questionaires

Heart and Hypertension

Respiratory

Diabetes

Genitourinary

Neurologic Conditions

I plan to answer as few as possible questions on each questionaire and have written see back. I plan to type up my history and everything I can and print it on the back of these forms.

I had my C&P's yesterday..........

They doctor came out and introduced herself and said did you complete the questionaires and I said yes. I gave them to her. She said ok sit her it will be a half hour before I talk to you (this was a two hour scheduled appt). She came out and sent me here and there about the hospital, back to the lab three times, up for a pulmonary function test and plus I had two other appointments that I missed because of the pulmonary function test that I didnt know I was getting. Anyway 4 hours later I am sitting out side her office and she hands me the C&P report and says proof read this. It was nine pages long, I found two mistakes. The report was fukcing awesome! I couldnt of hoped for a better report unless I wrote it my self.

Diagnosis

Vetitbular disequilibrium

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

ED

Hypertension

Coronary Artery Disease

Nephrolithiasis

Chronic prostatitis

Sleep apnea

Deviated septum

Right upper extremity incoordination

Still being evaluated for asbestosis, copd and hearing loss next week.

I had my PTSD C&P as well it was only a hour long, I could tell the doctor had read my complete mental health record as she was aware of both stays in the pysch ward and other items. She said she would type up her report and then it would be up to the raters.

The doctor did not ask me one question! She took everything off what was printed on the back of the questionaires.....................sure made it easy B) She even put in there I was unemployable by VRE standards

I believe you mentioned you go to the Detroit VAMC. If so, ride back down there asap and go downstairs and sign a request for a copy of the c & p`s to be sent to you. You will get them in 2 weeks or less. The PTSD c & p will pretty much tell you what it will most likely be rated at. Seems to me the Detroit office always goes 1 level below what your report matches up with. I wish I would have filed for IU on my original claim.

Cavman they will send him everything but the PTSD C&P that has to be released by the VARO, they started that about a year ago they release it about the day they rate it but he can get the rest of them right away

I went down last summer to the VAMC a week after my PTSD c&p and it wasn`t completed by the doctor yet. I signed a release to mail a copy to me when the diagnosis was completed by the doctor. I got it in about 10 days.
