Flare ups for increase ? Great Deluca argument?

Question

according to  38 C.F.R. §§ 4.40 and 4.45 

i believe i should be increased from 10% to 20% 

please look at these codes then

look at the DBQ from Dr  i provided you will see the flare up measurements.

Code 5252: If the hip is limited in how far forward (flexion) it can move the leg, then it is rated under this code. If it cannot move the leg more than 10°, it is rated 40%. If it cannot raise the leg more than 20°, it is rated 30%. No more than 30° is rated 20%, and no more than 45° is rated 10%.

Code 5253: All other limitations of hip motion are rated under this code. If the hip cannot swing the leg out to the side (abduction) more than 10°, it is rated 20%. If it cannot move the leg inward across the other leg (adduction), it is rated 10%. If it cannot rotate the leg outward (toes point off to the sides) more than 15°, then it is rated 10%

Here is the deal:  "Most" Veteran's advocates recommend a Veteran, when attending a C and P exam, tell the doctor about the WORST DAY, not the VEts "BEST DAY".  

When you go into a c and p exam, and the doc asks, "How are you?" 

Then you respond, "Fine".  So why are you suprised when your C and P exam does not document your worst day??

Better:  C and P doc:  "How are you today?"

Vets answer:  "Much better than Thursday...here is what happened on Thursday.  I got in a fight with my wife, and was arrested and thrown in jail for domestic disturbance.  Now I have a restraining order and can not even go to my own home."  

That is a much better answer than "Fine".  Just tell what happened on your worst day.  If you had a flare up last week, tell the doc about it.  Dont expect the doc to be a mind reader and know that you had to lay in bed all day because of the pain, without mentioning that.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
