PTSD C & P exam

Question

 

i looked up my C &. P exam for PTSD.  One section states

Occupational and social impairment due to mild or transient symptoms which decrease work efficiency and ability to perform occupational tasks only during periods of significant stress, or symptoms controlled by continuos medication

does this sentence make it an automatic 10% or could the listed symptoms make the rating higher?

symptoms listed are anxiety, suspiciousness, chronic sleep impairment, difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships, and difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances (including work or a worklike setting

 

thoughts?  Thanks in advance!

if one of your symptoms is sleep impairment   you might ask your MH Dr For a Referral to the  VA sleep clinic...if you get diagnose for sleep apnea/& prescribe a C-Pap  Machine medically necessary to use you can file a secondary claim  to FOR SLEEP Apnea  DUE TO YOUR S.C. PTSD

A 10% isn't always a bad thing, you can work on building on medical evidence to get an increase. It takes time, but it's well worth it.

Get onboard with PTSD 101, Individual or Group Therapy through the VA. If you would rather not get seen at the VA, you can go to a Vet Center or a private therapist. The key is building at a minimum one year's worth of medical evidence to solidify an increase.

I agree with Buck52. Since you have a chronic sleep impairment, you need to consider getting referred to a sleep specialist/pulmonologist and get a sleep study. If the sleep study shows you have sleep apnea. The sleep study or the dr. note is required to say "medically necessary CPAP" for a ratings scheduler to grant it.

You can put in a claim for sleep apnea, as secondary to PTSD.

The more symptoms  you have for PTSD usually means a higher rating  and the severity of the symptoms, from what you mention above anywhere form 10% to around 50%

let us know what you get?

I received a combined rating of 60%-10 for tinnitus and 50 for PTSD.  I had a few things deferred.  I am a bit of shock right now and thankful.  I appreciate everyone that took the time to help!  Hope you get this update

Thanks for letting us know, 50%is what I thought they may give you  but the 10% for tinnitus is  nice too.

Remember if you get any worse be sure to apply for increase.

It appears he wrote you up for ten percent then started to write something that might lead to thirty percent.  Can you post a redacted copy of the exam so we could better understand?

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
