Neuro exam from VA


Question

I just took a neuro exam and the Dr. Said it was invalid due to low test scores. I have memory issues, ptsd, and was involved in a dismounted ied which rattled me. Physician stated there was no way the blast could cause a mild tbi and concluded my test scored were invalid, what does this mean.

Hi Grumpy1972 The short answer is you need some professional help. I assume "the Doc" is a VA doc, and probably during a C&P exam. In any case, his opinion is the one of record. You need to get your own medical doctor's opinion on your condition. Get evaluated by an outside doc, preferably a MH doc,  and if his eval shows that you do meet some criteria for TBI/mental health disability, you need an IMO from him saying so. If he agrees with the VA doc, then it is more likely than not that your symptoms are not bad enough currently. I assume you proved with your service records that the incident occurred. If he agrees with you, then you have a basis for an appeal. But you need the favorable diagnosis.

 It wasn't for a c and p exam. I have ptsd 70% with memory issues. The first eval was done outside of VA and stated extreme memory issues. 3 years later the VA requested another neuro exam. I stated I had been involved in an ied blast which I was with four others, two are in prison and one is in bad shape also. The last exam was a VA neuro which disputed the findings of the civilian dr. My concentration and memory, anxiety and hypervigilence never stops. I am not even claiming TBI, I was trying to figure out where my memory issues and other items are stemming from. But to call the test invalid, I do not understand because I tried.

I had a series of low scores. I've just contacted my civilian dr. To request another exam.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
