Re: C&P Completed (reply)
Please take the time to read The Old Medic's profile.  He is a psychologist and knows what he is talking about.  You took a survey with questions that you can answer anyway you desire but more goes into the diagnosis/rating than the...

Re: Resperidone/Respiridal Use (reply)
Sounds like the stuff of a class action law suit.  Search the internet and see if any law firm has started a law suit.

Re: Confused about ChampVA for p&t veteran (reply)
The folks at ChampVA are the easiest folks to work with of any government agency I have ever dealt with.  Give them a call and discuss the situation.  I am sure they will work with you on the questions and issue.  Good luck!

Re: AO Used in Taiwan? (reply)
Having some type of repair done on a C-123 in Taiwan that could not be completed in VN, I will accept but basing the planes there for use in VN makes no sense.  The range of the C-123 is 1,471 miles and the distance from Taiwan to VN is...

Re: Sleep Apnea secondary to PTSD (reply)
I don't think anyone is arguing that SA does not exist (I am a sufferer) nor that it can kill a person.  The discussion (which really should be between a patient and a sleep doctor) is what is responsible for the patient's SA (being over...

Re: Question Re: Surgery this week (reply)
Unless you are currently 100%, I would file for the secondary condition due to the prostate surgery.  Of course, I would discuss this (or any claim) with my VSO prior to filing.  Good luck with your claim and hope the surgery goes well!

Re: Confused with C&P results (reply)
The box the doctor checked concerning social and occupational impairment, equates to a 30% rating, but all you records would be considered by the rater.

Re: Getting Old.... (reply)
I was watching my daughter change my week-old grandson's diaper the other day and he started peeing.  He could have put out a forest fire fifteen feet away.  Talk about a yellow shower.  I was glad I was out of the line of fire!

Re: Decision. Hearing loss 0% Tinnitus 10% (reply)
They are SCing the hearing at 0% because the test did not meet the requirements for a 10% or higher rating.  The good news is that if your hearing gets worse, you are already SC'd and would only have to show the results of the hearing...

Re: Reduced??? I guess... (reply)
The VA cannot reduce your payment without notice.  Have you recently moved without notifying the VA?  Have you been receiving any money from the Army?  Beyond the forgoing, until you get your notice, I am out of ideas.  Good luck.

Re: Increase in PTSD rating (reply)
First, take a look at the requirements for 70% and above to determine if an increase is in order.  You can locate the rating information in the second thread in this section titled, "PTSD A - Z".  Having symptoms get a little worse, may...

Kevin,Yes, you can use E-Benefits to file a claim.  The VSO is correct that sometimes, E-Benefits is not up to date or totally accurate but, in your case, you have used the system to file information with the VA and it (your...

Re: PTSD with no war? (reply)
 Moved to the PTSD Forum.  It could be as simple as the VA being unable to verify the stated stresser.  Do you have any combat related awards (CIB, PH, BS with v, etc.)?  If not, the VA will have to verify the stated stresser.  Have your...

Re: ICE under fire for releasing thousands of illegal immigrants with rap sheets (reply)
Illegals do serve their time (in most instances) but ICE is walking away from deporting them upon release.  The dictates of the Immigration law are very clear but are being ignored by ICE.
