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?”

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
I filed some intents on Nov 30,2021. On Nov 29th 2022 I filed my claims. They were on
Supplement claim for tbi
migraines secondary to tbi
Supplement claim for lumbar discs
My tbi claim was combined with ptsd for an overall rating of 70%. Migraines granted at 30%. RH sciatica 10% and allergic rhinitis 0
my overall combined rating is 90% effective Jan 5 2023
On January the 2nd I mailed out my award for fers disability which I received in July 2012. I was retired over my back which was rated 10% then. I also received ssdi dated back to July 2012 which was only claimed as my service connected disabilities. I sent that as well as about 10 years of evidence from private doctors. A nexus and supported questionare and statement from my civilian doctor stating I was unable to work due to my service connected disabilities.
in March I received a letter from the va stating they received my evidence on January 6 2023 and that I needed to make a new claim based on that evidence But that claim from November was closed fast. Less than 3 weeks after I saw the c&p doctors
So my question is that, why didn’t the va use the evidence they received 1 day after the claim was closed ? Would this be a cue claim or something else. It’s still a month out before I see the dav service officer
