  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Yes you will find it is.  The VA is not your friend, it will deny you due to sloppy record keeping or just sloppy rating actions.  It looks like it is time for you to go to the BVA.  When you get your SSOC please redact and post it here so people can advise you on the path most beneficial to you.

Roger that ! I have been scanning other Veterans sites and this site by far is the most informative. I enjoy reading the post and usually find a post that peaks my interest. So we see what happens.

When I first filed for SC I had no idea what I was doing but of course just like everyone else I expected I had all the info I needed to prove something. I had put my flat feet as a primary and all other disabilities (knees, back, hips, and a couple others ) secondary to flat feet not knowing that definitely does not fly. So I appealed and and through the process (opting into Ramp and other things) I realized that I had no Nexus and when I finally had a C&P exam Aug 2018, which was very questionable to say the least. I said I have to do something different. So I went to a Dr. Orthopedic Surgeon with the medical opinion in tow (Aug 2018), STRs, post service medical records and medical opinion and asked her to please help me. The Dr helped me she was or still is actually a medical examiner, she did an examination,  medical opinion/Nexus (knees and feet) and she said to me that all your evidence is here why didn't they look.  I said I don't know. She said the only rationale she can come up with is the questionable,  and the only C&P exam in regards to these disabilities was not in my favor. She expressed that it was her job to tear the medical opinion and questionable C&P exam apart and she did with ease because I don't want anything that is not owed to me nothing.

Have a question.?

The Dr performed my goniometer measurements while I was sitting on the examination table (feet swinging-sedentary position) due to back condition,  so of course measurements start at 90 degrees.

the results were 78 degrees flexion -12 degrees extension (passive ROM 0-86 degrees) how does VA figure this. Any help

So my supplemental claim is in the "Preparation for Decision" and VA.Gov still says Recieved June 11 ridiculous. I have to call the 1-800 to get a status and that how I knew it was in that stage. Interestingly enough I called ebenefits and inquired about why has't my status been updated. The guy on the phone said that VA.gov does have any tech support staff to updates to the system. So I said to him let me get this straight you can file a claim through ebenefits but to check the status you have to go to VA.gov where it may or may not show anything. He said that is correct. I said to him the first thing that comes to mind "that is the most ridiculous rthing I have ever heard in my entire life. he laughed.

      I have a question and I hope someone chimes in. After talking with DAV yesterday something rung in my ear and I chewed on it for a while actually it kept me up last night (which leads me to this question). The VSO stated that VA gave more probative weight to evidence received from one doctor's office (American Medical Center not a VARO or  government entity) over another because the one in question had access to my C_File and Virtual (VA Records). I know this to be a clear error because this doctor's office is a German doctor's office with English speaking receptionist and doctors, and pay local German taxes. The doctor's office is in business to cater to Americans living and working overseas in Germany and they process the German bills through the patients health insurance not VA. They do not have access to Veterans c-file (sometimes not even then) unless they have a VA initiated C&P exam. I have been to this doctor's office and the service is so lala, I used the medical files(with my personal STRs) from this office in my evidence when I went to the Orthopedic Surgeon and ask her if it was possible for her to perform a thorough exam of my feet and knees. So I believe that this was error in assumption because the name of the doctor's office rendered a out for a possible denial. Is this grounds for a CUE, I am really interested in you guys thoughts.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.

    • Thanks everyone for their answers and advise and yes Ido have a VSO American legion but unfortunately I still have to manage to work and call times are mornings only almost impossible to talk with him.

       I am gonna try to get ahold of him tomorrow but u have to call right at 0730 eastern OR call list fills and never get on his list sucks!

      The worst thing I’m going through is that I’m stuck in limbo I can’t file on my other things I can’t add nothing I can’t do anything basically my hands are tied, this is complete wearing on me mentally Not to mention I’ve been out of the service since 95 was six service-connected disabilities and then thrown to the wayside as a young adult with no knowledge of how what or when by the VA  now that I’m middle-aged my service-connected disabilities Have gotten so severe that I have multiple secondaries until I came across by chance a VSO in my county that helped me out back in 15 I’d still be at a loss and left at the wayside forgotten about now that I’ve been back in the system And have a 80% rating the VA now is trying to drop two of my ratings because I feel that this DRO rview is going to put me at 100% or really close  in a way to just keep us down and out and causing worse injuries by forcing ourselves to do what we have to as humans to survive in the workforce that you can’t really physically do anymore sucks all the way around!
