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?”

Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

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

Is it ok to number the medical pages that already have # on them to minimized the reading because of thousands and thousands of medical record pages./Reports ect,,,,ect,,,,,,
Example would be this
If there are # on these medical records that pertain to a certain procedure they maybe duplicate #-s on these records that may be from another Dr with a total different procedure .
So to minimize this is it ok that we go through these medical records and find the major disability's where the Dr's did surgery's and procedures ......> that with any one with common sense would realize this is certainly what makes her totally disabled and in need of assistance from another person.
Ok if these medical records already have # 's on them is it ok to just number these pages that we pick out of thousands and thousands of medical records and # them to make it easier to read...like when we find a records that the Dr sign and gave his medical opinion say a diagnose as well as a prognosis and an explanation to the disability.
like on her Dr's letter that says she needs assistance due to her multi disability's but don;t give an explanation to why she needs assistance......> is it ok to write on them see page# 22 or page# 25 see page# 28 ect,,,ect,,,, the reports from Dr's that would render her assistance from another person.
because of so many medical records this would keep from sending in thousands of pages & of course minimized the long reading.
were going though these medical records at present.
Thanks we both appreciate your input and opnion.

Hey Buck, Per guidance from other members, I labeled my evidence pages as exhibits and used letters instead of numbers (so there is no confusion). I used Microsoft Word to type up my submission
absofrickinglutely. When I did my claims I sent a binder folder with a table of contents, an brief narrative at the beginning of the situation as I saw it, some relevant information about condition,
Buck, I have done both in the past but not at the same time. I made sure that I addressed the issues(s) on the proper form and then make sure that I would attach those documents with my claim. Yes,
